I think the integrated GPU is a great idea, besides having an extra GPU onboard to accompany your discrete GPU(GPU Physics processing?).
Think about the mainstream market, people buying a NVIDIA/AMD/ATI mobo, and automaticly has a powerful enough GPU to run UT3 at a decent detail quality setting. This might just save PC gaming.
I can imagine it already, parents buy PC for 8 year old kid for cheap price, but cheap PC has powerful integrated GPU with chipset, kid surf online and found out about awesome FPS games like UT3, Crysis, Source engine games, and COD4 and moar, then downloads demo for them. Then the kid likes them a lot and pester unknowing parents to buy them. Kid gets all the games, and this WILL in turn, give us a new generation of DEVOTED PC gamers that will save our sacred gaming platform and hobby.
Bwaahaaahaahaahaahaahaa, AMD took the step first, then NVIDIA now did it, Intel will have to follow. Finally some hope for PC gaming.
Besides all that, HTPC with a cheap AMD Phenom X3 running on either the AMD chipset with integrated GPU, or NVIDIA's offering with their integrated GPU.
