Eh I call it mindless consumerism, but to each their own. Win for Intel.

If your motherboard does NOT support SLI, then IB will make PCIe 2.0 slot run at 3.0 speed.

If your motherboard does support SLI, it must specifically say it supports PCIe 3.0, otherwise it will run at 2.0.

Why, I am using i3-2100 as a place holder, for the purpose of jumping to IB 3570K.

Considering I'm running an AMD 965BE, I think Ivy Bridge is a worthwhile upgrade, don't you? It will last far longer, there's far better motherboards out for Intel, and let's face it, their socket design just for sheer installation purposes is years beyond AMD. I can't wait to make the switch.

Not necessarily. It's my understanding that PCI-E 3.0 will work on the first x16 slot with the h61, p67, and z68 chipsets. See this coolaler thread where a well established reliable poster shows working PCI-E 3.0 with Ivy Bridge on an H61 board. The issue with compatibility arises when you attempt to split those 16 lanes the PCI-E lanes to two or more slots. For most of the early Sandy Bridge boards, no matter the chipset, the switches that enable that splitting are rated for PCI-E 2.1 only. In those cases you will only be PCI-E 2.0/2.1 when you run an x8/x8 multi-gpu setup, even with an Ivy Bridge CPU. This is the reason for the PCI-E 3.0 rated motherboards - they have PCI-E 3.0 enabled lane allocation switches.

We'll see. It'd be awesome if clock potential is that good. Personally I doubt the veracity of that rumor. I could see 5.0GHz @ 1.25-1.3V perhaps.....

I just made the switch from a 4.2ghz 1100t, gaming performance on bf3 nearly feels the same, maybe a little quicker when making FAST turns, but honestly where its WAY faster is at opening things up lol. And it only cost me $80 to make the switch after selling my amd stuff biggrin.gif

Just because gaming doesnt change drastically doesnt mean overall pc use wont

Well I just upgraded to a 3960X from a 2600K. Why? Bored, I guess. Wanted to go X79 but couldn't find a reliable place to buy a 3930K. Originally wanted to upgrade to IB, but couldn't wait. And honestly, I only use this PC to game and overclock with.

Disposable income ftw.
