    It's an option for me with a 3570k z77-UDH5 and HD 7870.

    Would it be worth it?

    I wouldn't bother using it unless you are using Intel's Quicksync transcoding. Using your dGPU through the iGPU has a lot of overhead (over 10% I believe).

    Damn, I suddenly feel enlightened.

    It's so... complicated. There are benches out there that show by metrics it's great, and others no difference, wtf? Is it a technology that doesn't have enough users, adds complexity, it's only good for certain things, or just generally sucks?
