Default Re: ivy bridge desktop lineup details

intel is stalling for a lack of competition. The only great point is that you could now get similar or slightly better perfs than your system for cheaper.
But you are right, a good overclocked socket 1366 is still quite competitive.
Moreover, unless you are doing video compressions, for gaming, those excess CPU cycles are pretty much wasted.
