Oh I spent 900$ on a PC, no money to buy spare GPU tongue.gif

Why buy a spare GPU if you can use the iGPU.

Im going IVYBRIDGE myself for my upgrade from the i3-2100. The slightly faster stock clock speed and lower power consumption @77w vs the 95W current i5 is whats doing it for me. I dont use integrated graphics so this isnt a realy turn off for me.

Intel, we want "native", not fused, GPU-less unlocked Ivy Bridge models upon release, pls.

This is what should have been done from the beginning. I understand they are most likely just using defective iGPU chips and couldn't do this from the beginning due to lack of inventory, but it would have made more sense. I'm glad they have the option now though. I would have bought it for sure if I had the choice at the time of my purchase. I understand the need for the iGPU, but I really have no use for it other than a backup. Can't believe people can't see past themselves enough to realize this. APU's are going to be huge in the OEM market. We are not like most people, the iGPU's are perfect for the majority.

A word on Quicksync. Sure it is faster, but the quality is very much lacking compared to pure CPU encoding with quality software/codecs. Again, for the vast majority, it is a great option for them. Youtube, FB,etc videos are just fine using it but for anything else, I find the quality to be unacceptable for my tastes. I have hundreds, if not thousands of home video I am in the process of converting over from 8mm(the old reel to reel type)/VHS/Super 8, etc to digital and all of the GPU assisted methods have been found lacking in comparison to normal CPU encoding. It has improved, but still isn't near what I would like. Mostly color representation isn't up to snuff. The one built into AMD's driver package as well as Quicksync just don't cut it for anything other than lower quality YT/FB uploads. Just my opinion of course.
