No, these are all 1155. I think Ivy Bridge-E (for 2011) is supposed to come in Q1 2013.

So much for the 2500k I put into my system last year....

IB = tri-gate transistors AND a shrink. If you don't see how important that is vs. SB then gtfo noob.

Yeah at most its a 10-15% performance increase apparently. The real increase is the integrated graphics. And no one uses them here, so who cares. I wouldn't bother if I already had the 2500k. Ivy bridge will be my new chip for the next few years.

yeah... dude ivy isn't going to be a massive increase over SB anyways.

sort of like if you had a i5-750 moving to a i5-2500k was "nice" but not if i'm honest OMFG nice.

(i upgraded my wife's computer by giving her my i5-750 and got me a i5-2500k, I was happy with the upgrade but if i hadn't been upgrading the wife's rig it wouldn't have been worth the money if i'm honest.)

when ivy comes I will probably just chill and wait for a bigger upgrade later.

What you complaining about? There's new processors every year, might as well wait infinitely long for processors that's bound to be better than what you have now. Besides, Ivy Bridge isn't a huge performance increase from Sandy Bridge if you look at the reviews.
