    With NVIDIA now supporting DirectX 10 graphics and ATI well on the way to joining it, Intel is looking like the most likely competitor be next in line to enter the new era of PC gaming. With its new notebook platform codenamed “Santa Rosa,” Intel’s next generation GM965 mobile chipsets, known as Crestline, will feature integrated graphics capable of running DirectX 10 applications (probably not as well as anything from NVIDIA or ATI though). This should give a boost to the number of people DirectX 10 ready by making it more mainstream in the notebook industry, meaning DirectX 10 games could become common sooner than expected.

    Wasn't supposed to have Directx10 the GMA X3000 already? (with crappy incomplete drivers, that's it)

    i think this is a quite good sales ploy, lol so it will support dx10 but not the game or application it is to run.

    Good to see intel is still keeping its beat. I'm more interested in when they release some REAL performance video cards though.

    This could be good news for budget HTPC builders.

    If Intel can actually produce Video Cards quality wise like has been said, then this is probably a good step for them. The last generation of integrated cards by them were crap yes, but they were a huge leap over the previous generation. Go Intel.
