  1. Ivy Bridge are the current series of Intel processors. Sandy Bridge were the previous generation of Intel processors.

  2. Most relevant differences for the average person / gamer:

    1. An average of 6% performance improvement assuming same clockspeed.
    2. Lower power consumption
    3. Improved Intel HD 4000 or HD 2500 depending on the model. The Intel HD 4000 is about 35% more powerful than the Intel HD 3000 on average. Basically it is equivalent to a Radoen HD 5550 desktop graphics card.

    Dont forgot native USB3 and PCI-e 3.0 support. But only the USB3 is really relevant.
  4. Sandy Bridge is the pre-production code name for the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors. These processors are using our 32nm process.

    Ivy Bridge is the pre-production code name for the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors. These processors are using our 22nm process. On top of what the others have said. :D

    Now that's just being annoying! :non: :)

    This was said in a different way, uses less power at a given clock! LOL
