Ivy Bridge is a Tick not a Tock. (Move down to 22nm from 32nm but the same basic architecture as SB).
Tick = New process node + "old" architecture on new node
Tock = New architecture.
Realistically Ivy Bridge will off better performance at the same price point thanks to increased clocks speeds. The new AVX instruction set will no doubt give a boost in very specific programs (just like AVX does now for AV encoding) but I wonder how this will translate into real world performance.
As for LGA2011 - WANT!
