Dudes ... There is no onboard output on the motherboard, true. But, however, the integrated graphics is still there. I'm 100% certain, since it's in the CPU's - which is technically not only a CPU.
The Z68 chipset is used to combine the integrated with the discrete GPU.
The onboard is the ******* champion of decode and encode, while the discrete GPU is the connector to the monitor while also handling the FPS, etc.
The H67 has onboard, the P67 has discrete graphics. The Z68 is a combination (+ you can overclock at least your CPU. If I remember correctly, you can OC the integrated GPU as well. And of course your discrete GPU).
The Z68 is aimed for the enthusiast of the SB users, and damn .... I want one. If I could afford it, that is.
