ya but thats software.. and intel doesn't make those drivers.. the drivers would be how the hardware communicates with the software... and, as far as i know, has nothing to do with the actual cpu. if in theory you could fit a different brand cpu in the same socket, it wont' matter whether its intel or other brand because it won't affect it.. just like now.. if you switch out processors, it will have no affect on video card performance.. anyways.. i'm just guessing..
