Intel confirmed a long time ago that TB and USB 3.0 will come with Ivy Bridge and the rest of the 7 series chipsets.

This is just another negative aspect of Intel's new release schedule.

There won't be a 22nm 6/8 core ivy bridge using the 2011 pin socket form factor for high end desktops?....I doubt Intel will exclusively limit it to socket 1155 and 4 cores for the mid range of the market...
