    Intel is working on a strange new processor model based on its new 22 nm "Ivy Bridge" silicon, the Core i5-3350P. This part is reported to lack integrated graphics, much like the Core i5-2380P and i5-2450P, from the previous generation. The new i5-3350P will be a quad-core chip, with 6 MB of L3 cache. It comes with a base clock speed of 3.10 GHz, and 3.30 GHz Turbo Boost speed. Like every other Core i5 quad-core processor, it lacks HyperThreading. The lack of integrated graphics also takes a toll on its TDP rating, which is down to 69W. The new Core i5-3350P is expected to be launched in Q3, 2012.

    So I have a question... if you are using a video card exclusively for graphics, can or does the integrated graphics serve any purpose, whatsoever?

    For example, is there any SDK that can harness the Intel IGP for other purposes?

    I take it that these will be locked CPUs?

    Intel Quick Sync? Of course with H67, H61, Z68, B75 or Z77 mobo.

    IIRC, the +4 overclocking still would function on these. Giving 3.7Ghz overclock without a bclk adjustment.

    Yeah, it's always baffled me that Intel includes their IGP on their unlocked 'K' processors when hardly anyone who buys those, will use it. On the other hand, this Ivy Bridge has a disabled IGP, but the multiplier is locked. WTF, Intel?

    Its always good to have. I used it while I was in between GPU's

    *Edit*

    Another good thing about it is its encoding power combined with HT on the 2600K

    I agree, but there's more to that.

    I'd welcome IGP, because it can be useful when you're swapping/testing/having problem with your discrete GPU.

    However, if it makes the CPU more expensive, or more constrained in performance (TDP), or have other ill effects (occupies huge die area), I'd love to have it thrown away.

    You may use Intel Quick Sync, which also requires some CPU resources as well, but it's still awesome compared to other GPU assisted solutions.
    If you have a single card setup, Lucid Virtu MVP can give you average 10-20fps plus (<=1920x1200), which is worth to consider imo.

    edit:These are still unpolished technologies, but I think I would personally miss the IGP tbh.

    Yes there is. Quicksync works ridiculously well. Encoding at 300-600FPS is nuts.

    I'm just guessing, but maybe he replied to the last sentence: the question about the SDK?. Anyway, Intel Media SDK is also available, so I'm not really sure what he meant by that.
