    I think the reasoning is that 32nm can be turned over to other duties (i.e. Intel still runs 45 and 65nm fabs for chipset and older/cheaper mass production), or in some instances the fab would need to be taken offline so that it can retool and be refurbished for a newer process (i.e. 14nm or 10nm)....it's still definitely Intel's long term strategy at work in any event.
    True enough...odd how some people equate a PDN or EOL notification with "OMFGWTF Intel are taking my processor away"

    And that the problem HD 4000 is good, but it all the other IB that are more in need (65W) suited/priced (HTPC) for HD 4000 Graphic that are stuck with HD 2500 which is still bad.

    yes this is true but ivy grow heat when you oc and if you dont have a liquid cooling you have to spend other money for upgrade and its not possible for everyone

    well i understand that but if you see my post up,ivy make much more heat thant the last generation = you have to spend money for have good temps = money to spend for intel laziness for apply a good termal paste on the die clap clap

    Just a couple of things there..
    Firstly, Ivy Bridge pretty much equal SB performance at 200MHz less clock, and if you're OC'ing to (say) 4.5+ then you should really be looking a bespoke watercooling loop in any case- as you would with the corresponding performance from a 4.7G Sandy Bridge CPU
    Secondly, if absolute numbers are a must...and air cooling is a must...then...Here's a Pro tip >>>Go out and buy a Sandy Bridge CPU<<< But you'd better hurry as the cut off date for the channel is September 27, 2013....
    ....which means that you'd only be able to source a Sandy Bridge via eBay, or a (r)etailer carrying new old stock until about 2015-16. Of course, by September 27, 2013 everyone else will be looking at Haswell CPU's...not Ivy Bridge, and by the time the Sandy Bridge market dries up completely, everyone (excepting AMD diehards waiting for Excapulveriser, and you looking for a 2500K) will be buying Skymont.

    Why, the memory controller on BD isn't even that good TBH. Its only slightly improved over what Phenom II had.

    The thing you guys are forgetting is that Haswell is around the corner. If Haswell can pull a generational leap like Sandy Bridge did, then we're all going to forget both SB and IB and drool over Haswell.
