Your sim-trading will improve massively on Ivy Bridge.
It looks like the new Ivy Bridge CPUs have a heat problem when overclocked. You can purchase Monday if you wish. Here's a video presentation:
They're "hot mamas" : http://www.overclockers.com/ivy-bridge-temperatures
If not for this overheating problem, I would be ordering one right now. Maybe I can make it until the next release in 2013.
Why would you want to overclock it unless you are gaming. My understanding is the highest offering in Ivy Bridge mobile processors is 15% faster then the 2960XM and the desktops are 30% faster then what was offered in 2011. That should be more then enough processor for anyone.
Usually they have these 20-30% coupons on Logicbuy which pop up after a month or two.
The desktop Ivy Bridge systems on the HP website are 30% faster then the extreme Sandy Bridge systems in 2011. If you need to overclock that rig, then I have to ask what are you running. Are you computing formulas to design a new Space Shuttle or trying to find the cure for cancer or breaking the new Russian code? You simply dont need all that power.
Actually what a lot of people do not realise that with the smaller 22 nM die sizing the chip is getting pretty close to the theoretical minimum of 14 nM.
The problem with this small sizing is that relaibility will go down because the temperature will vary far more than in the processors made with larger lithography. 10 years ago it was 1 mM (or a factor 60 larger) and those chips could not be destroyed. The smaller die has imho build in obsolence due to the higher thermal stress.
I am running on a slightly older generation (core 2 duo) and my CPU utilisation is in the order of 10 - 15%. I fail to see how a 10 , 20, or even 50% increase in CPU performance is going to help my trading.

Actually what you do not realize is that you talk bulldhit. Empty head fillied by stupid idea type.
See, there is no theoretical limit at 14nm. This is why Intel just published a roadmap DOWN TO 5 nM
the 14nm limit is more on of the current technology approach.

For all those happy about their tablets, intel ALSO said that the power use of mobile chips will start dropping now - their goal is FACTOR OF 25
So much for theoretical limits.
We have read all the articles about these so called "hot mamas"...and their were several articles about this before the official Ivy Bridge was released..but we have not experienced any temp differences in our builds...we are talking about hundreds and hundreds of computers...We believe this is issue was isolated to prelaunch CPUs
