    And here I was hoping that even for a Tick, that the HD4000 would have a little more oomph than what these initial benchmarks show, oh silly me. However, any improvement is a welcome one, since I'm holding off on buying a new laptop until everyone comes out with their 2nd-3rd quarter ivy bridge equipped ultrabooks. I also know that how these processors bench, especially mobile versions may and often will be different when these chips are finally released into the wild. Here's to continued anticipation~

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat. I'm also waiting to see if AMD's Trinity can do anything special. If neither can, I may end up just going the discrete GPU route.

    Anybody knows if theres a IDF conference video for this?
  13. Ticks bring huge improvements in power consumption reduction, generate less heat, are smaller and they revise an existing architecture, so there's a lot of improvement. In my oppinion, ticks are the one worth buying.
