People kept tossing around "Ivy Bridge" as socket 2011, but I vaguely remember that being incorrect, that IB is the mfc-process size drop and that 2011 was something else. Can someone shed some light?
EDIT: Never mind. If I read the article correctly, then IB is the 22nm process. I'm assuming there's another moniker for socket 2011?
And no. As of now, it's not known whether 22nm processors will be compatible with the 6-series chipsets, even with a bios update.
