I don't think so. I think the bus between the CPU and northbridge
is different, and it can't be easily done. And if it could be done
I don't see Intel willing. It's the same reason there aren't intel
addon graphic cards.

But if you find one please tell me. I ended up with and AMD cpu + nvidia
vga in order to at least have nouveau, but I hate buying from nvidia.
