    The price difference is only $10. For PCI-E 3.0, Thunderbolt, native 3.0 USB, etc... I would think it's worth the extra $10 for the Ivy Bridge.
  5. So Ivy Bridge does saturate the PCIe 3.0 bandwidth then? How come so many people here say it doesn't, like aznshinobi?
  6. The high temps and resulting reduced overclocks have taken a lot of gloss off IB

    SB looks to be a better option for many enthusiasts

    I don't think it does, although I haven't seen any real benches with the IB and a new generation card. Those benches will be on the review sites in the days to come. I do remember though when PCI 1.6 was the thing and when PCI-E 2.0 came out everyone said it was a waste. It didn't take long for the vid card makers to catch up. That makes a difference I think for the builders who don't upgrade all that often to another socket. I'm wanting to see some benches done with 7970's and 680's in SLI with these IB's to see just what they got.

    Ivy Bridge is MUCH more powerful per clock. You can't overclock as high but the resulting performance is better.
