There isn't much drastic changes, but there is almost 10% more performance, less power consumption, better GPU and most important it is new and same price as of Sandy Bridge, so Ivy is better.

Forgot, IVB also can overclock better and has 63x multiplier.

If you are looking to upgrade from sandy to ivy then cancel the plan, as there aren't much drastic changes, but Ivy bridge has the edge.
But if you are buying new then get Ivy.

If you have a Sandy Bridge system with a Quad-Core processor I would not upgrade. Sandy Bridge Quad-Core architecture can handle about anything an end User wants to do with their system.

With computers there is no such thing as future proof.

That's true but you could buy an Ivy bridge and not have to buy another cpu for a while. Heck, you would probably be fine with a Sandy Bridge cause those things are like indestructible and you might as well upgrade to have the current chip and stay with it for a couple of years.

Prices can only go down, and since the sandy bridges are more than enough for a lot of people, upgrading now seems pointless. But it wouldn't hurt.

Ivy is actually cheaper than sandy according to anandtech, they are faster, and they do use less power and have a more powerful igpu, but, the first batches of ivy, or at least the one they recieved for testing, was slightly worse at overclocking but was strong at undervolting, but they said all processors get better after time once the 22nm technology is refined and improved.

Lookin like if you were expecting super performance vs sandybridge, better wait till next time

only real benefit to people using discrete graphics is PCI-e 3.0, and thats questionable if thats necessary at the given time, id say no myself, id just get sandy bridge till prices of ivy fall further, but thats my 0.02

Anyone know how much larger the overclocking potential of the Ivy's will be over SB?
