We just received an invite from Intel regarding a "major" product launch event which will take place on the 6th of March in a "central London" location; the product is most probably the "tick" alter ego of Sandy Bridge, i.e, Ivy Bridge.

The email mentions that it will be "one of the company's key product launches of the year, featuring demos and keynotes by Intel executives and other leading industry figures".

Ivy Bridge is the codename for the 22nm die shrink iteration of the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture - which stands at 32nm - and the first to use tri-gate transistors which were showcased back in May 2011 on an Ivy Bridge prototype.

Nothing excited on the CPU side, GPU and Video Encoder / Decoder should be interesting.

They seem to very nice TDP figures - maximum 77 watts for 3.5 GHz quad-core and 65 watts for 3.1 GHz. I wouldn't doubt that they'll deliver on that. Now compare that to 125 watt burning Dozers, performance comparisons not even taken in account.

Hopefully this chipset generation won't disappoint new feature wise, although one already known disappointment is no XP driver support any more even if you are dual booting XP with Windows 7/8 for certain apps, games and features Windows 7 doesn't have. :(
