The integrated part was announced in May this year, but VIA didn't specify when the product would be made available to motherboard makers. Well now VIA will next month ship its P4M900 chipset.

The P4M900's key introduction is the Chrome9 HC DirectX 9-class graphics engine, upgraded from the current top-of-the-line P4M890 UniChrome Pro.

The Chrome9 supports Shadier Model 2.0, sufficient for Windows Vista Basic. However, the GPU does support HDTV output at up to 1080p resolution, and it can host an external PCI Express x16 graphics card, and there's an extra PCI Express lane off the North Bridge for other devices. The core is clocked at 250MHz.

The P4M900 supports front side bus speeds of up to 1066MHz - so it can take Intel's Core 2 Duo desktop chip - and both DDR and DDR 2 SDRAM, the latter clocked at up to 667MHz.

You're better off with Yate Loons. I ordered 3, got one in the front of my case and two for when I upgrade my radiator. They're awesome.
