The Ivy Bridge is the next line of Core i series. For the most part they are the exact same as the Sandy Bridge but with a better GPU built in. They will be faster, but not by much. Let's put it like this; for just the CPU side of things, the planned high end i5 will be the 3570K which will have the clock speeds as the i7-2600K. The 2500K is 3.3GHz so the 3570K 3.4Ghz. The 2600K is 3.4GHz the top end IB i7-3770K 3.5GHz
The only 2 things that the IB brings is PCIE3.0 support and natively DDR3 1600.
Real quickly, the Sandy Bridge natively supports 1333MHz but that doesn't mean you can't Run 1600MHz RAM but you'll have to "over clock" it to run at that speed. When I said natively I mean that when you let the mobo auto detect the RAM it'll automatically go to a setting.

So now I have to know if there's a price drop once Ivy Bridge comes out, or I'll just get 2500k now.

Yeah. I'm buying it together with one now that you mention it.
