You can wait for the release of Ivy Bridge sometime in March/April of 2012 along with the Z77 chipset and compare the 'then' offerings of Sandy Bridge Enthusiast to Ivy Bridge. As an example you could research and analyze the benchmark and performance difference both in synthetics and real-world/practical performance for the 3700K vs the 3930K/3960X and even the SB-E Quad-Core model variant.

There will be six octocore xeons for 2011 released starting at 2ghz with the highest being 3.1ghz

After what i saw with X58 vs Sandy's ... i don't really think i'm going the X79 route.

Now, more than ever, you can really see the division between the Professional & High-Enthusiast market, and the Gamers / Enthusiasts market.

lez hope somebody figures out how to unlock cores on these babies

Then by that logic he may as well wait for IB-E to release later next year to then compare to IB 1155.

There's no point waiting, unless the next gen is only a matter of days/a few weeks away. If you waited to compare to the next thing, you would be forever waiting.

Don't get me wrong, I hear you. But ultimately, IB won't see much performance gain over SB. The biggest difference will be the reduced power draw and better IGP, thats about it. IB may be 5-10% faster than SB but it won't touch SB-E. Why would Intel essentially kill off their uber performance line (SB-E) only a matter of months after its release?

The only thing that will surpass SB-E next year is IB-E, not IB 1155.

So if people want to get SB-E they might as well jump on it now. There's no point waiting for IB 1155, they aimed at two different markets and IB 1155 wont get close to the performance of SB-E.

Plus, you can always go SB-E now, sell the chip and get IB-E when it drops.

Agreed! Bulldozer taught me this lesson all too well.

There's always something to wait for. With IB on 1155, we pretty much know what to expect.

Will wait for the 8 Core Xeon cpus and a new SR motherboard is released. 16 cores for Autodesk, CAD, etc. Cannot wait.

I'm in total agreement that if you wait till the next gen to see if the performance is better you'll constantly be waitin gas there is always something better coming six months later.

The closeness in the of the supposed launch dates of SB-E and IB (mid-Q4 2011 and Q1 2012) really makes me want to wait until IB test results are out before deciding on what platform to adopt. Particularly as I'm first and foremost a gamer. I OC for gaming and i bench to test the maximum power i can get put of my system for gaming. However, at the moment (and hopefully this will change with BF3) there is no reason for an upgrade from my heavily OC'd Bloomfield i7-930 to SB, let alone an even more powerful system, especially as SB-E is looking stupidly expensive and money doesn't grow on trees (the same reason why i canned my plan to get another GTX580, there would be minimal noticeable performance gain for me in the real world).

So I'm in no rush to jump on the first platform that comes out, and if you are lime me and only rebuild/upgrade the core of your system (CPU & mobo) every 18 months or so, I'm advising all to wait till Ivy Bridge. last thing you want is to spend is the best part of $1000 on a SB-E mobo and CPU and have it surpassed by something you could have bought for $500 in three months time.

Well that's my two cents anyway.

IB will bring same features on the motherboards than the SB-E, like PCI 3.0. Some people on the forum talk about +10/15% in perfomance for IB compared to SB.

I don't think that SB-E will be surpassed, X79 platform is for an another part of the market.

My 2 cents too
