Nobody knows. Only when Intel releases Ivy Bridge and the motherboard manufaturers get a crack at them will we know what companies will provide BIOS updates for what boards.

Hypothetically, yes, you should be able to run IVB on a Z68 chipset, as long as the BIOS is released for CPU support. I'm in the same waiting game with my Gigabyte Z68...
