It was a big jump on performance over the previous generation. Intel goes on a tick-tock cycle. The tick is a big jump, in this case Sandy Bridge. The tock is a refinement of the tick that typically includes moving to a smaller manufacturing process. The tock will give a smaller boost in performance along with better power efficiency. Next year we get haswell as the big tick and the following year it will be shrunk with the tock. What gets interesting is we are going to be to the point in a few years that they aren't going to be able to shrink it anymore. That barrier is said to be 10nm, Haswell's successor is supposed to be 14nm if my memory is correct. So around 2020 things are going to get interesting. Either we are going to get some great new tech or they are going to go back to adding more cores. Should be a fun time.
It makes people think of the beach, which relaxes them.
Seriously? You're a year behind.
