this and native dual channel DDR3-1600 plus could be more new features

Ivy Bridge Charts

Sandy Bridge Charts

might be from wikipedia but the charts are good and informative

So really it wouldn't matter if I upgraded now and Just went with a z68 or p67 gen 3 board I would still be able to drop a Ivy B chip in and roll from there. Doesn't seem like the motherboards are going to have that good of additional features.
