Nvidia introduces next-gen NVIDIA ION graphics processor, which'll supercharge netbooks with 10 times graphics performance of standard netbooks1 and enable up to 10 hours of battery life2 thanks to NVIDIA Optimus technology. New ION GPU vastly outperforms basic netbook graphics by delivering rich HD media in games, movies, and Internet-based video. Unlike netbooks with Intel integrated graphics, ION netbooks have power to play amazing HD video smoothly from sites like YouTube and support popular PC games like World of Warcraft. More than 30 products featuring new ION GPU are expected to launch by this summer including netbooks, small form factor desktops, “barebones” systems, motherboards, and discrete add-in cards. Acer Aspire One 532G 10" and ASUS 1201PN 12" are expected to be first new ION netbooks to be introduced. New all-in-one PCs powered by next-gen ION will include ASUS EeeTop 2010PNT and Lenovo C200. Channel partners including AOpen, AsRock, Asus, Foxconn, Giada, J&W, Jetway, Pegatron, POV, Shuttle, and Zotac also plan to introduce new ION-based products soon.
