A comment about : "These CPUs are positioned for computer enthusiasts, who will never use integrated graphics merely because the Intel H67 chipset supporting it doesn’t offer any overclocking-friendly options at all"
I think there are still a number of users like me who like upgrading their system in order to have a best-in-class processor, and who don't need a separate graphics adapter.
My typical use of a desktop is to be able to do photo editing, video encoding and blu-ray conversion to other formats; I never play games except some good old' logic puzzles.
After seeing the impressive tests results of the "Quick sync" feature, as soon as main boards with corrected chipsets are shipping again, I'll probably switch to Core i7 2600K with H67 chipset; or maybe I'll be patient enough to wait until z68 come out, in order to enable the "unlock" part of the processor .
In any case I will not purchase a dedicated graphics board "only for Cuda" or equivalent !
