Its nice to know that the new Ivy Bridge Processors uses the same socket as the Sandy Bridge and backwards compatible with the chipset...If the price is right and I get at least 30% increas in CPU performance I want one of these on my G73sw...

Then I guess Intel finally realized this was a good idea then? AMD has been doing this for a long time now.
