This conclusion is definitely wrong. The Ivy Bridge die is smaller and therefore the heatspreader does not work so well as with a bigger die (Amd ones are definitely BIGGER). Also those speed records are done with unlocked amd chips which have only 1/4 of the integrated cores enabled at all (ok, for Intel this is possible as well). Intel has got K cpus but the maximum multiplier allowed is now 63 (Sandy Bridge 57). As the base clock can only be raised by 10% usually this means the max. is around 7 ghz even with liquid nitrogen. I think Haswell will allow up to 77x, lets see how well it works.
