This doesn't make any sense. This like saying that the i7 wasn't mature when it was released, and you need to wait three generations before buying one.
Bulldozer is a new design, but that doesn't mean it won't be fast enough for consumers to use. The design behind bulldozer is to rely on parallel execution via an onboard GPU or a discreet GPU solution while utilizing the CPU's ability to execute integer related commands faster than GPUs can, thus the whole "Fusion" thing AMD is rocking.
