    Intel have launched their latest processor - the third-generation Core CPU, otherwise known as Ivy Bridge. This new processor represents a process improvement on the previous model (Sandy Bridge) being a reduction to 22nm.

    The new chip has been well received and there are already many reviews available to read online - here is a handful:

    Really wanted to see a little more out of IB.... :/

    My 2.5+ year old i7 920 is still rocking anything i throw at it and sits at 4Ghz* all day. I was just starting to get a major upgrade itch too but IB just isn't the upgrade i was hoping for....... Thought the power consumption and temps are looking decent. :)

    *4.2 if i up the volts another notch or two.

    IB + a 680 would have been nice little upgrade, but not worth the money from where i am at the moment by the looks of it... :mad::cool::rolleyes:

    I'm looking at upgrading my Q6600 to a mid-range i5 in a few months time. TBH, the Q6600 is still quick enough for me, but Becky's 3Ghz P4 is really slow now so she's moving to the Q6600.
