We wont see DX10 compliant integrated graphics solutions for some time. I bet that we wont even see it this year. AMD doesn't even have DX10 graphics card at any price point. The R600 is delayed till May/June, but it seems the RV610 graphics card will arrive in April if the rumors are true. Look how long it too the x300 and X700 to make it from discrete solutions into the chipset (about 1.5 years). Maybe this time next year we will see DX10 integrated boards, but to be honest with you it's wont be worth it for gaming as it will be slow. AMD will also be well into their Fusion series by 2008, so maybe platforms like this one will be gone... Who knows, but it's fun to think about.
As for others being DX10 compliant the NVIDIA GeForce 7050 has already been leaked out and is NVIDIA's answer to the 690G. It too has HDMI/HDCP support and many of the features that the 690G has. Pictures of it were posted all over the web, but it seems that most sites have taken then down at the request of NVIDIA. Here is a picture of it that was ripped from CHW and is being hosted on DVH. Anyway, the point I was trying to make is that it is not DX10 either according to the leaked specs and the name of it. ;)
