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?
