This is a bit like saying Intel changed the on-chip GPU for something an upgrade twice the performance than before. Look, Intel HD graphics 2000 vs (upcoming) Intel HD graphics 4000. The Intel HD 4000 takes casual gaming up one tier. The other productivity gains seems small, seeing as overclocking CPU would have more gains. I just bit the bullet when Microcenter had their Black Friday deal on the 2500k+mobo combo, so I know it's cliche, but this news makes upgrading seem... "can never catch up".. but I'm still happy with my choice. As for gaming, it's all about the dedicated GPU upgrade.
