    Default Ivy Bridge

    Best one I can find so far is this.

    INTEL CORE I7 3770K IVY BRIDGE 3.50GHZ 8MB 95W LGA1155

    Compared to the best Sandy Bridge this seems a little low specced.

    Can I get a better Ivy somewhere?

    Nope that's it, and it's really no better than the 2700K because it doesn't overclock as well. At stock speeds ivy has a small advantage but that's all.
    Maybe there are faster models on the way.

    I don't care about overclocking, never done it and probably never will
    I don't want to get a Sandy as that is now old tech and the Ivy has surpassed it in every way except availability of higher end chips.

    How frustrating.....

    In that case don't buy the "K" version because it just adds overclocking support to the normal 3770.

    I have a 2500K in my games machine and a 3570K in my other machine, there is no noticeable difference in practice.

    The 3930 and 3960 are now available overseas, so they won't be far away. The 3960 is ridiculously expensive, though.

    3930K goes is basically toe to toe with the 3960X. Isn't the 3960X sandy bridge anyway?

    I think they're both, technically, Sandy Bridge (well, Sandy Bridge E), to be fair, but they are about the best performing desktop CPUs around atm.

    There are some significant technical enhancements in Ivy Bridge that are not in Sandy Bridge.

    Yeah that's what I wasn't sure on. Both the 3960K and 3930K use the 2011 Sandy-E socket so I wasn't sure at all. Apparently Intel has already got the 2012 socket sorted for early next year. Ivy-E? I assume.
