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.
As the universe is curved, there cannot be a straight answer...
