Is it true that an Ivy Bridge can use both the built in graphic and on top of that another regular graphic card?

Having both cards working together as one unit?

Well I don't fully understand it myself but what I think you are referring to is the fact that all 7-series chipsets support processor graphics, last year we had the P + H variants with one able to use the processor GPU with a discrete GPU installed and the other not until Z68 which made things a lot easier.
So its the Motherboards that are the difference as far as I understand it.

I'm waiting for a full set of Ivy Bridge reviews, which should be with us tomorrow.

Does the I7 upgrade graphics beyond what getting the I5 would do? Considering I already have a graphic card?
