They already have another major launch coming before socket 2011's X68 chipset, and it's basicly just another socket 1155 chipset, but more performance oriented then P67, Z68. Not sure why it's needed beyond something to do with allowing you to use the video decode engine on the IGP simultaneously with their discreet GPU still providing main video output. If that's it's only trick, or that it adds some PCIe lanes for multi-GPU people, it may be hard pressed to prove itself worthy of any extra cost above P67.
