I thought the next generation of Intel processors was the "Ivy Bridge" which is a 22nm shrink of the current Sandy Bridge microarchitecture.

Also, these chips were also supposed to be used in the X79 motherboards. What I see now is the SB 3xxxK series of processors, and not the IB. When in the hell will we see the much awaited IB processors? Will the use X79 or a new chipset entirely?

IB is scheduled for 1h 2012. X79 is SBE socket 2011, IB as you said is the die shrink of the current SB and will be the same socket 1155. There will be new chipsets released as well.

Should there be an enormous leap in performance as compared to the Nehalems and SB?

this is a good read on Ivy Bridge - http://www.anandtech.com/show/4830/intels-ivy-bridge-ar...

If I remember correctly there will be a modest 4-6% gain in performance over existing processors at the same clock rate. The big change will be in energy savings, improved graphics and native USB 3.0 support.

Will IB use a different socket type and chipset? When will the 8-core processors from AMD and Intel be out?

Did you read the links we posted? They have all the answers for IB. Not to mention you first question was answered in my first post. AMD will be out Oct-Nov, no specific date yet.
