These are actualy not "graphic cards", but graphic engines
integrated into their chipsets:

I certainly welcome intel's decision to provide (open) sources
for their chipsets, but although intel has the biggest market
share concerning "graphic chips", i wouldn't say they are the
technology/performance leader in this field. Means: for the
average Linux user, i guess intels on-chip graphics will be
probably good enough for daily use, but for professional 3D
applications or "serious" gaming, i think the competition is still
in a much better shape.

Could you please provide a link for that announcement?
