Not sure about bulldozer but everything into the phenom II line is based off of K8 but with improvements.

I think phenom II is K10.5

Bulldozer is a completely new architecture and core design. I don't think it has anything in common with K#.

G34 sever boards, which have been out for quite some time now, are already compatible with Bulldozer I believe. All that is needed is perhaps a BIOS flash?

Based on my understanding, Bulldozer will work with AM3 boards but if you want the power saving features you'll need to upgrade to AM3+.

We went through the platform change on server in march of this year. Everything was designed for bulldozer. Client's move to AM3 was much further back, so there is a platform change required. I don't deal in the client world but I am pretty sure that their platform changes are still less numerous than the competition.

Too bad, that would have been awesome. And yeah, AMD is still pretty far from intel multi-sockets situation.

Well according to that article, the new Llano CPUs' are K8 based, except that they're on a 32nm process, which could could yield much better overclocking. Also, the article stated that the Llano's are much more refined, so perhaps they'll give better performance than the original K8's.

Not that the K8's are bad, they were definitely great for their time, but a little dated now, even K10(.5)'s clock for clock performance is considerably better due to the more efficient processing capabilities.

That's pretty much what the article said, existing AM3 owners will be able to use Bulldozer, but in order to "unlock" all of its features, it will require a new socket.

So is Bulldozer based on K10(.5) architecture or is it all its own?
