From what I've read, this will actually require a new socket.  I don't know if this is correct, but I read that it will support 1156, but require LGA 1356 for X68.  

My source is Wikipedia.

Seems like this is meant for the 1156 package, and not the 1366 since it won't include workstation productivity.

Two questions:

1)Can it run Crysis

2) Is this somehow related to "Sandy Balls"

 Integrated graphics! Sure sounds like a winner with me! Well, AMD has been doing this for a while and my neighbor has been using the graphics. OK for most things.

I think you are thinking about gaphics solutions integrated into the motherboard/chipset. From my understanding this is actually a graphics solution integrated into the cpu. Although amd is slated to release a similar product, they have by no means been doing it for a while. This is a fairly new development in the pc world, but both intel and amd seem to think it is the future of CPUs, so who are we to argue? :D
