I'm looking forward to Intel's release of the 22nm Ivy Bridge. I wonder how severely the best of that release will shame my i7 920? Looks like motherboard manufacturers are listing 8GB RAM modules. Still expensive but should come down like everyghing else. 64GB of RAM overkill? I'm sure Adobe will find a way to take advantage of mega-RAM. Looks like Adobe had a good quarter. So what's the question? Anyone else hopeful of the new 22nm Ivy Bridge processors and anticipating a big performance boost?
Chuck, I am looking forward to testing 64 GB of RAM. With my i7-2600K system I recently went from 16 GB to 32 GB and with PPBM5.5 the H.264 test dropped from 60 seconds to 52 seconds. No major affect to the other scores. Good Luck!
