Would this make a lot of difference? To be honest I'm not sure if I should be very excited, as I don't really know how much my Intel 4400 would help my M820, Would there be a noticeable difference in performance?

Yeah I have no idea why would people actually want that. Correct me if I'm erong, but there's really no reason to split the computing between two variously powerful cards, is there? I can't see this making a difference of more than 2fps or so...

There is a performance gain to be had but I can't imagine it being worth developers' time to utilise it. In theory, you could push a portion of the physics, for example, onto the integrated card (or some similarly suitable division of the compution). I can imagine the time spent developing is better spent elsewhere.
