Default Re: If you intend on overclocking, it's probably best to skip Ivy Bridge

It makes me wonder how the chips would go at higher clock speeds with the same tdp as Sandybridge. Maybe in time things will change with the process. At the very least Haswell with its larger GPU will at least have a larger die to disperse the heat better. I'm sure the process will have improved by then also. Ivy has been pretty disappointing for enthusiasts, but in the mobile sector it's a strong step forward. I still think if I were to buy a laptop this year it would probably end up being Trinity based.
