    or is it 3570k, I think it is, seems to be a lot of people typing it incorrectly in reviews.

    Really disappointing chip - For overclockers at least. Not being able to hit 5ghz without the use of LN2, or a fire extinguisher, because the chip hits a wopping 100 degrees celsius as soon as you pump some serious voltage into it.

    I cant see many people upgrading from SB to IB, so probably not a whole lot, although its almost certainly will knock them down a bit as they are no longer the newest generation.

    I'm disappointed. Really no reason for current SB owners to upgrade.

    it is a bit disappointing, the question is, if the price of the 2500k drops £20 so that there is a £40-50 diff to the 3570k; what would be the best option for someone new the the 1155 socket?? or is it even worth upgrading from 1366 in the first place??

    decisions, decisions :wallbash::sigh::wallbash:

    That would depend on if or how much you want to overclock and other factors like RAM and IGP.

    I've not bought the CPU for my new build yet, depending on pricing I may well trump for the new IB one. I have the IB ready motherboard after all...

    To be fair, if you see a cheap i5 2500K or even a 2nd hand one for sale (£120'ish) then jump on it.

    I got both a i5 2500K and a i5 3570K, the only standout difference is the Ivybridge's HD4000 IGP is much better than the HD3000 junk found in the 2500K

    I'm sporting an i5-750 right now so I'm glad I waited for Ivy Bridge. I'm still trying to decide if I want to go for the 3770k or save the money and get the next step down. I'm planning on doing a lot of rendering and CAD design so the HT 3770k stands out. That said, I'd also need to plunk down some money on a better cooler because I am definitely gonna OC.

    Besides that though, the Anandtech CPU bench app puts the 3770k at nearly twice as fast in almost every test over my 750. My wallet is gonna hate me for this.

    I must admit, I'm suprised by the number of Sandy Bridge owners who seem to have been contemplating such a small jump to Ivy Bridge. (I'm also very envious of the depths of their pockets.)

    I was waiting for Ivy Bridge so I could finally upgrade my Wolfdale based Core 2 Duo (my trusty E8400). For me, Ivy Bridge is attractive, as it incorporates technologies such as allowing an SSD to a cache for frequently used programmes on the HDD; as well as potentially using the inbuilt CPU to support my GTX 570.

    The question for me now is, bearing in mind that I'm jumping from a 45nm Duel Core, how much the price of the 2500k needs to drop to make it worth ignoring the features I've listed above?

    I was looking forward to something game-changing, like the i7 920 I have at present. I guess I'll wait for the next gen if that's the case :/ Can't find a reason to upgrade, it seems.

    Yep I agree as I was seriously going to make all these changes beginning June but think now I will stick with what I got and just get a spare 1366 board and maybe just upgrade the gfx card
