NVidia and Netbooks: Getting Into the Game

nvidia2leadWe’ve known that NVidia has had its eye on Netbooks and now we’ve got news that they are releasing the Ion platform to compete in the space. The Ion platform is a combination of GeForce 9400 and the Intel Atom that is touted as delivering a more powerful graphics solution on Netbooks, replacing Intel’s GMA 945.

Did I say touting? Yes, I did. NVidia is saying consumers will see a graphics and video bump of 10x and supposedly will make it easier for Netbook systems to run Vista and Windows 7, as well as High Defintion video content.

Look for this to supposedly start being available in the fall of 2009, once NVidia gets some partners on board to bring this to market.

    I find it so IRONIC that this hasn’t found its way to tablet PCs. It would benefit a lot more on a ULV and LV Core 2 Duo than on an Atom.
