It can switch between integrated and add-in graphics cards easily

Lucid's Virtu MVP technology usually shows up in laptops, where it swaps between the CPU's integrated graphics chip and whatever discrete AMD or NVIDIA GPU happens to be part of the notebook's hardware configuration.

Intel has strayed from that trend by launching a desktop motherboard equipped with Virtu MVP.

Spec-wise, the DZ75ML-45K is a micro-ATX Z75 motherboard with DDR3 2400MHz+ OC memory support (four slots, 32 GB max capacity), one PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot, one PCI Express 2.0 x 16 connector (x4 Electrical), 8-channel audio, four USB 3.0 ports, 10 USB 2.0 ports, two SATA 6.0 Gbps connectors and four SATA 3.0 Gbps ports.

The official product page can be found here, but the price of the motherboard is still unknown. Shipments should start soon though.

More Virtu-enabled motherboards will be released this year (2013).
