Ivy Bridge to have 20 percent performance advantage over Sandy Bridge
Although Intel's Sandy Bridge processors have only just launched, early details of Intel's next generation platform codenamed Ivy Bridge are already starting to trickle out. According to early roadmap details we've seen, Intel is estimating that Ivy Bridge will offer a 20 percent performance advantage over Sandy Bridge which is slightly more than what Sandy Bridge offered over Intel's first generation of Core i processors.
Ivy Bridge will at least initially be available in LGA-1155, although we'd expect the new CPU core to appear in other socket configurations as well. Don't expect any huge change in terms of the basic features though, as Ivy Bridge will still only get two or four cores, although there will of course be models with Hyper Threading available. Ivy Bridge is likely to get upgraded to support PCI Express 3.0, although it's unlikely that we'll see an increase in lane count.
