It's been a while since a batch of motherboards with Integrated Graphics Processors has been released. However, with the new nForce boards, we are seeing quite a few boards with a 6100 built in, like the Biostar GeForce 6100-M9 TForce reviewed by TweakTown. Consider it the next time you are putting together a system for a non-gamer.
"The integrated desktop graphics market is often one which is overlooked by many users. It's
generally understood that integrated graphics adaptors will never be as capable as their beefy
standalone cousins, and so tend to get written off as being beneath the interest horizon. While
this generalisation is certainly founded in truth, it is also true that apart from games and some
high-level graphics rendering applications, there's not much out there that really requires
dedicated, high-end graphics cards."
