  1. i'd hang on for a few weeks after ivy bridge is launched and "officially" benchmarked by third party sites.
  2. what would be the advantages of an ivy bridge cpu?
  3. 5-10% increase in performance and a lower power consumption; at least that is what is being stated now. more will be known after its release wide scale in a few eeks.
