How do you figure? SB-E is just SB with more cores. IB is an improved SB.

Unless four cores + HT isn't enough threads for near future games, IB will be the better gaming chip.

Heh. Sorry I spose I jumped the gun a little bit there. Better for gaming wasn't the best term used. What I meant to say was SB-E is for well the extreme. The 970 (if OC'd right) along witht he 980, the 980x, and 990x all have more raw power than the current SB line up.

My feeling is that SB-E is going to be in the same boat when compared to IB. So IB could be better at gaming, but for raw processing, my belief is that SB-E will succeed.

IvyBridge is more about it's integrated GPU than anything else, it's likely to be a quick little chip, but SB-E is what most high end gamers would choose for TRI SLI and Quad SLI scenarios.

Neither of the chips you're asking about are out right now. So the only answers we can give you are based on our speculations as to the performance of the chips.

But I would prefer a 77w 3700K over a $600 130w 3930K. The extra two cores are unnecessary for simple gamers using either a single or dual card setup, but will show great promise when overclocking the pants off a tri or quad setup.

I would say if you're bent on getting something ridiculous you'll be surprised with the power of Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge.
