BenchmarkReviews.com: Intel sticks to their "tick-tock" CPU development cycle, where the "ticks" represent new CPU architectures and the "tocks" represent process refinement. Sandy Bridge CPUs were the "tick", and the new Ivy Bridge CPUs are the "tock". Fabricated on a 22nm process with Intel's new low-leakage "3D" transistors, Ivy Bridge represents a fabrication breakthrough if nothing else. But how does it compare against the immensely popular and powerful Sandy Bridge CPUs? Benchmark Reviews dives into the fray to let you know.
