The slide mentions upcoming Orochi die, set to release as Zambezi or FX-Series on the desktop and Valencia (Opteron 4200) and Interlagos (Opteron 6200) on servers. AMD's next-gen Fusion APU, Trinity, is set to feature next-gen Piledriver architecture cores, as revealed in recent roadmaps. As mentioned before, the GPU part will be part of the Radeon HD 7000 family, and is rumoured to feature the VLIW-4 architecture. The overall improvement in theoretical GFlops will be 50% over Llano. Of course, while this may not indicate a 50% increase in real-world performance, Trinity is set to be a major step forward for the Fusion initiative. Trinity is expected to release in the first half of 2012. 

In addition, Fudzilla also reports that the next-gen 28nm parts will now also be branded under the Radeon HD 7000 moniker, as expected.
