If Intel can squeeze up to four cores, IMC, IGP, and PCIE management in a small package of an 11xx CPU, why can't they squeeze in an IGP on the 2011 CPU's? They are at least 50% larger in size. Sure there may be 2, 4, or 6 more cores, but an IGP would come in handy for testing or if your GPU died. You could still use the system.

Probably cause people who buy these CPUs have money for a GPU too.
Also most of these LGA2011 CPUs are xeon CPUs which dont need an IGPU most of the time cause its used as a server and controlled from another PC.
