Link source?
I haven't read anything about giant leaps back, but more like minor improvements forward.

Default Re: What is the deal with Ivy Bridge?

Are you looking at equivalent versions of each motherboard?
If you look at an Asus P8Z77V-LX vs an Asus Maximus IV Extreme then yeah there are differences.

But comparing similar boards side-by-side there is actually very little difference in features.
MSI GD55 and Asus Pro, Z68 (Gen3) vs Z77 comparison here.

What differences are you talking about like up to 64GB instead of 128GB? Probably like Roark says - need to compare apples to apples.

Maybe he is looking at X79 vs Z77.

This seems to be the case. Although, I wouldn't say they've taken a step back, considering X79 was for the SB-E procs like the 3960x. Z77 is for SB and Ivy, if you catch my drift?
