It`s all a bit of cat`n`mouse afaic. Intel have done graphics for a long time, but not ones that would perhaps challenge the front runners of nVidia/ATI.

It also appears very silly, from the outside looking in, that there have been mobos that will do crossfire, won`t do SLI, won`t do crossfire, will do SLI and maybe some boards that do neither.

The community tried their thing with `hacked` sli drivers and the like, showing that, especially with support, boards available were `capable` of doing the things they were acclaimed not. Claims obviously meaning "we don`t want them to do...". Then the process gets crypted as a result.

I`m pretty sure all parties involved have their own faults in terms of co-operation, but it hasn`t seemed to have helped the gamer especially. SLI, in theory, is meant to be an awe-ground breaking performance booster - and in reality the majority use it as a benchmarker - only to fall back to one card due to stability or compatablity.

1 thing I would acknowledge is that anything Intel releases as a dual card graphics option is going to be pretty solid in the driver department. But I would only question, as with the regular SLI debate, will 2 of their cards work better than an equally priced single nVidia ? Early stages, probably not, but I have no doubt they`ll get better - and have a solid platform to work off.

Never thought this to-and-fro`ing and variants of mobo standards was good for the industry tho. I`d much prefer a standard of 2 pcie slot mobo and be able to stick in 2 cards of my choosing. I think it holds the tech back, imo.

at this rate, in a few years, you will have the choise of an intel pc, or an amd pc, intel consisting of intel processor, motherboard, graphics, or amd, consisting of a athlon, a radeon, and a amd motherboard....this sucks tbh

Intel graphics have always sucked. WHy do i have a feelings their own "sli" is going to as well. Intel should continue doing what they do best. Processors. Quit this, we wanna natzi the market like M$.

Intel won't just be going for the same pants onboard as they have done in the past. They have the capacity to go out there, hire the best engineers and then cream Nvidia and ATI

Time will tell

I wouldn't doubt for a second that the gfx cards that Intel release will easily compete with the standing champions from both AMD and nVidia. We're talking about Intel here folks, unlimited amount of funding for R&D, be prepared for some kick ass cards.

in time they may well produce decent cards but it will take a while...

imo i think they should stick with doing processors and let ATI/Nvidia do the graphics side
