    When the primary usage of these IGP's is to run HD videos and general usage with entertainment thrown in, I don't understand why Intel should use "DirectX 10 ready" as a USP when I can't use this to play a DirectX 10 game such as Crysis or Lost Planet even at the lowest settings.

    Yea my HD 3450 has problems running running Crysis at low with a 3.2ghz E2200 @ 1440x900 so I doubt a Intel onboard could even run it low on 1024x768 :rolleyes:

    Sort of like when the 82915G came out and Intel announced it could process Shader Model 2.0, I was like wow, Doom 3 on an IGP....I was wrong. With a Prescott 3.20 GHz, I was watching a dull jagged slide-show designed by Carmack.

    Kind of sounds like the Vista Ready fiasco/aka lawsuit. DX10 on an igp could surly mislead an uneducated buyer.

    Because your CPU is doing the work.... :laugh:

    Seriously it is. Unless your are using a special configuration to utilize your GPU.;)

    Avivo, Powerdvd with Purevideo HD support etc.

    "Come on out kids! take a look at Daddy's new motherboard with NVidia DX10 graphics!"

    *opens the box*

    "Huh!? why did it bundle two tubes, clamps and why does the motherboard have two holes in the middle?" :confused:

    My previous experience with an Asus mobo with IGP (ATI Radeon 9100) wasn't great. I mean it was ok to watch films and use 2D in WinXP. However, as soon as I started to play games, the thing was useless. So I pretty much stopped playing PC games and focused on Xbox / Playstation. Upgrading to a powerful (and power hungry...) standalone card wasn't an option (due to insufficient custom made micro-ATX psu, impossible to upgrade).

    IGP is a gimmick if you're into gaming, unless these new ones offer true performance, which I doubt. The only good thing I can think of is if you have to RMA your graphics card, you can just about survive on your IGP in the meantime, for your basic needs. But then again, a cheap DX10 card (e.g. geforce 8400GS for $30) will probably do a better job.

    I have the p5e-vm hdmi in my lanbox and it is a great board. The bios very close to the Maximus Formula board as far as options, great overclocking board. Also has 6 sata ports and all solid caps, great for a micro-atx board.

    Pretty sweet. I like seeing a variety with the IGPs that offer DX10 and HDMI output.

    i dont have a 1080p screen, but the intel onboard in my mini rig managed 720p content just fine :p

    AMD do have a winner with the 780g, but it dont mean these are useless for movies.
