"Intel's big announcement at CES is their new Sandy Bridge architecture. Without getting too far into the technical side, the important thing about this is the first-ever addition of graphics processing onto the main CPU itself. It may sound like a simple upgrade, but it could change the way we all do a lot of things with our computers." | more

@ Deus Ex: No, the GPU will be inside the CPU itself and it will help the CPU compute data and it should make it faster. So let's say you're watching a video and the CPU is processing it, but it will be helped by the GPU and the GPU on the graphics card (if the player supports GPU processing or whatever). So you'll still plug your monitor connection to your graphics card, and everything will be cool. BUT the GPU inside the CPU will be connected with some kind of frequency or link or something, and when you overclock your CPU you will be held back by the GPU. That's what I think, and I believe I've read an article about this, not sure though. That's the problem with these CPUs, but until we have them installed in our motherboards it's hard to tell. Maybe there will be some kind of divider for the GPU (like the one for the RAM). Time will tell.

This is good for Dell, HP and other manufactures. Not for custom builders like us or hardcore gamers.

But wait, how will this work? Wouldnt you need to plug your monitor into something? DVI? HDMI?

Yeah it will change, the CPU-GPU thingy will be holding the CPU back and we won't be able to overclock, which is Intel's main goal. Ohhhh I miss my Cedar Mill.
