Ivy Bridge Processors Will Cost About As Much as Sandy Bridges

Tom’s Hardware recently got a hold of early price listings for Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors and compared them to their current generation Sandy Bridge counterparts. The results look promising: the price points are comparable.

Tom’s Hardware has produced a neat table that spells out the pricing details; check it out.

As the picture above demonstrates, Tom’s preliminary results demonstrate that Ivy Bridge processors outperform Sandy Bridges, especially when it comes to gaming, so Ivy over Sandy is a no-brainer for anyone building a new system. The question is, does the increase in performance justify the cost for those who already own Sandy Bridges?

Ok, first of all, we rarely need the power nowadays. Even a processor from around three years ago will game with the best-looking games on the market. That said, the power is still welcome.

I wish Intel would drop the STUPID Core i7 name. It sounds ing dumb.
