Hello,
I know the capability supposedly exists in laptops to switch from the integrated GPU to a discrete GPU on the fly depending on the program being run. Will we be able to do the same on a Z68 board? (I understand we would likely have to run another DVI to the same monitor or something, that's fine, but the power savings of not having to use x-fire 6970s for word processing tasks would be nice.)

What I haven't found is if Lucid Virtu works for it, but I doubt it :( 
So its manual switch I guess. Which is not so bad
