Clock for clock, how much faster is Ivy Bridge compared to Nehalem?

I'm curious about how much progress has been made in terms of architectural/IPC improvements in the past 5 years.

Someone over at anandtech upgraded and posted the results of his upgrade. Only a few tests though.

...That is actually surprisingly little, considering how Penryn -> Nehalem alone was a 20-30% increase, let alone the downright legendary improvement going from Netburst -> Conroe.

No wonder why the majority of i7 920 owners have no plans to upgrade rolleyes.gif

IPC has slowly increased but it isn't everything. The slight IPC bump combined with a solid 500-900Mhz higher overclock ceiling along with much lower power consumption makes the newer Intel chips significantly better.
