Nehalem makes it possible as once you move the memory controller on the CPU, the graphics wants to be there. It is not clear if the first Intel's CPU+GPU will be two cores on a die or two packages but the next generation one looks like it will all be on a single chip.The first 32nm CPU+GPU from Intel is expected in 2010 and the firm claims the graphics solution will perform ten times better than today's integrated graphics solutions (from Intel).
The way we understood in 45 nanometre we are talking about Nehalem CPU and a GPU on a single chip that has been developed separately while in 32 nanometre they make them together from the day one.
Intel GPU on CPU to be 10x faster
