so Nvidia and AMD will probably always be our high-end option , there's a limit you can do with onboard graphics solution (Space,Heat,Price).
Larrabee isn't a replacement for Intel integrated graphics.. It's a fully fledged add-in board GPU (and socket compatible GPU as well for HPC applications) with rumors that the first version will reach a 300W TDP. Not exactly 'GMA X5500'.
I'm curious where you got this info that Intel doesn't intend to compete in the high end, as that goes against every bit of leaked info we've gotten so far.
