While we're fairly certain about the launch-schedule of Intel's "Ivy Bridge" Core processor family and 7-series chipset from an older article, which pin-points at April 29 to be the day full-fledged reviews (including overclocking performance, and benchmarks that cover new features) can be published, there's still a looming doubt over that day being the one on which you could buy say, a Core i7-3770K off Newegg.com. A latest slide, probably sourced from Intel's Retailedge, lays that doubt to rest. April 29 is indeed the day you will be able to buy most significant "Ivy Bridge" Core i7 and Core i5 models. Certain other models are slated for June 3. Dual-core Core i3 and Pentium processors based on Ivy Bridge silicon are slated for "Holiday". As on April 29, you also be able to buy motherboards based on 7-series chipset, which support Ivy Bridge processors out of the box.

Me too. It's half of the reason why I got an 3820 and not a 3930k. :cool:

So we have confirmation that Ivy Bridge-E will run on current Sandy Bridge-E X79 LGA2011 motherboards,…….?

Personally I find current X79 motherboards to be somewhat lacking given their supposed elevated status in the hierarchy. If I want more now in an LGA2011 platform I’m just going to want even more then that come Q4 2012.

I don't consider my motherboard lacking in any respect with the exception of only 2 SATA 6gb ports on the X79 itself, but I only need two because two Force GTs in RAID-0 does 1gb/s and that already is overkill.
