Yes, there will be both dual and quad core (native) chips in the K10 line-up.

Expect server grade single socket chips by the end of the summer (so they say) and desktop chips hopefully before Christmas.

Dual socket (8 cores) systems should be available at the beginning of next year.

AMD has been reported to have had difficulty getting the frequencies (and yields) they want, so don't be surprised if these dates get pushed back.
