Personally, I don't give a funk what the SB or IB users think... I do however secretly wish they would stop craping in the haswell threads.
well if it's an upgrade from a very old CPU, of course it doesn't matter how much of an improvement it is over the previous version. However, if you've been waiting for a nice upgrade, but thought that IVY bridge wasn't quite good enough yet and that you'd wait till Haswell....this might not be the news you were hoping. Then there's those like me, who doesn't plan on upgrading my CPU for a bit longer, who just likes to see technological improvements in general.
