Exclamation 1155 GPU Question

I had a thought (yeah) Intel is putting GPUs in all its Sandy Bridge chips. Would it be possible, or legal, for Amd to build a card that accesses (possibly enhances the the onchip video?) ?
The idea being to defeat the denial of onchip video use by several H61, H67, P67 motherboards?
Without a GPU passive cooling should be fine. Even a "cooperative" GPU would be interesting. A hybrid design might make one card slot upgrades interesting??
Anyone out there [besides me, yeah, yeah].
Added DDR5 memory?
What say..

Without a chipset capable of interfacing with the GPU, it would be impossible for anything to access it. Anyway, it would be quite silly for AMD to build something that allows access to an Intel GPU, let alone build something for an Intel platform altogether.

I think you might be interested in this:

Lucid Virtu allows you to still make use of the intergrated GPU of the SnB Processors' while you have a discrete video card installed on your Z68 or H67 mobo.

Tomshardware did a review on a Z68 mobo and Lucidlogix Virtu was part of the review:

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...tion,2877.html

Virtu looks promising. The only problem is that it currently can't completely shut down the discrete video card while the IGP is working. So the discrete video card keeps radiating heat and drawing power.

Read about it, thanks, much appreciated. Still at the teething/debugging stage in the reports I've seen. Right track though.
