My System Specs

I forgot about the configurable TDP. Just speculation (obviously), but maybe the default setting will be the 77w (for a better reduction in power consumption) with selectable to 90w (same as current SB) for better performance. I read somewhere (so take it for what it's worth) that there will be a default setting, a reduced thermal setting, and a increased performance setting for the TDP (default plus one higher and one lower TDP). Just a thought. I am thinking that ivy bridge may be my time to update from my x3 710.
