Intel AnandTech puts Intel's new Ivy Bridge through its paces. "While it's not enough to tempt existing Sandy Bridge owners, if you missed the upgrade last year then Ivy Bridge is solid ground to walk on. It's still the best performing client x86 architecture on the planet and a little to a lot better than its predecessor depending on how much you use the on-die GPU."

Not worth it for me

Still comfortable with Core 2 Quad Q9550. Not worth spending just to get maybe 30% better performance. I'll wait and see if Haswell is any good, and hopefully they'll release some 8-cores.
