Nvidia Optimus technology for desktops coming soon?

NVIDIA plans to launch their Desktop Optimus a.k.a Synergy at COMPUTEX Taipei this coming June and the best thing is that it is available freely and no license agreement is needed. This technology works pretty much similar to LucidLogix's Virtu where it allows dynamic swapping between iGPU and dGPU based on the application's nature and also uses Intel Sandy Bridge Quick Sync technology while doing video transcoding jobs.
Desktop Optimus a.k.a Synergy seems to work with any NVIDIA discrete graphics cards on H67 / H61 and Z68 boards with updated BIOSes and graphics drivers. It is not known who's implementation is actually better but NVIDIA's solution is available for free while LucidLogix's solution requires a licensing fee.
