dont see much talk of it here. the 7150 boards came out, a notch closer to all in one :) i hope they release a decent integrated video mobo soon, something of the likes of a 8600gts or better on board wouldnt hurt ;)

Integrated cards are not meant for gaming , they are there rather for being able to use the PC without a video card and they have as low as a power consumption as possible .

Several down sides to a high end video solution on the mother board.
1.) Cost of manufacture
2.) Size and complexity of Motherboard. Inability to fit it all into current MB specifications
3.) Limited, or no upgradeability without replacing entire motherboard
Now that being said I think you may see AMD/ATI working on (Havenít they talked about this?) a CPU with integrated GPU capabilities?

AMD Fusion ?
I wouldn't put my money on that . Of course it'll be cheaper than a CPU and a GPU bought seperately , but how good can it really be ?
