Good news for those of you who have been waiting to upgrade in the hopes that Ivy Bridge will be arriving on time.  It seems your patience has paid off but you will have to wait a while longer before you can get your hands on Intel's next tick.  You can look forward to more PCIe 3.0 lanes, just like those who've jumped onto the new Sandy Bridge E chips and a bump on the GPU portion of the chip.  X-bit Labs doesn't have any pricing for the new chips, but they do list all of the models you will be able to buy.  One thing you should note are the impressive TDPs, they may not count as low power CPUs but they're certainly lower than other Intel and AMD chips currently on the market.

Previously the company planned to release the Core i 3000-series central processing units (CPUs) for desktops in March - April timeframe, which left a possibility to unveil the chips in the first quarter."

How many PCI 3.0 lanes is Ivy Bridge likely to have? 16?

Yup, but they are PCIe 3.0 lanes so they provide as much bandwidth as 32 PCIe 2.0 lanes. It will be interesting to see how that works once we have chips and boards to test

Any word on if Ivy is coming out for the 1155 cpu flavor?

All of them ... as far as we know, will be Socket 1155
