Ivy bridge is supposed to be only incremental, its biggest advantage being better integrated and lower power.

Note that the IB processor behaves as well if not better than the SB-E in those benchs, for probably 30% of the price, so not a great upgrade for SB, but still quite a nice value.

There is no real competition on processors lately, so expect stagnation and stable prices.
