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."

Same. I only buy AMD for my CPUs because I don't like what Intel did to them in the 386/486 years and I also disapprove of Intel's Microsoft-style "a SKU for every feature combination and woe be it if you don't anticipate every needed feature" approach to pricing.

(In case you weren't aware, Intel underestimated demand for 386 chips and had to cut a deal with AMD to use their fabs in exchange for sharing the 486 market. When the time came, they said "We've changed our mind... oh, and if you sue us for breach of contract, our lawyers are better and we'll just bleed you dry in court.)
