Wouldn't the NorthBridge on today's computers be completely on the CPU die? AMD started putting the MCC on the die, then they put GPU functionality on the die. Intel followed suite on the iCore processors.

It seems to me, all there would be are wires coming out from the CPU to go to the different areas (RAM, dedicated GPU, SouthBridge).

Correct me if I'm misunderstanding.

Its not wires its circuits printed onto the board. I don't really know exactly where but there is a heat sync on it to cool it.
