From Bjorn3D:

It’s quite interesting to see the computer industry go full circle and experience the resurfacing of old technologies. Because the computer industry is always standing on the cutting edge, it is not often that we see the returning of old ideas, since newer technologies are often faster and better. However, lately, we have seen a surge of old technology such as SLI. We have also seen a resurgence of integrated graphics processors (IGP). These IGPs were originally meant to be used with a low-cost system, where users were never going to be playing games on their desktop, except for Solitaire. NVIDIA has changed the landscapes with their plans to incorporate new IGPs - which they call "motherboard GPU" or "mGPU" - on every chipset.

A few months ago, NVIDIA announced that any future chipset from the company would come with an integrated graphic chip built-in. This may come as a surprise to many enthusiasts, as many of us will never purchase a motherboard with integrated graphics since we are always going to need something stronger.  However, in this increasingly environmentally-conscious world, going green is the talk of the town, and NVIDIA has taken this on by incorporating mGPU to their chipset. Confused? Read on.
