NVIDIA has posted a video of Internet Explorer 9 which is built to fully support graphics processors (GPUs). Obviously, the NVIDIA shows that life is indeed better with a GPU (here it’s an Ion Netbook, versus a non-Ion netbook. Ion is NVIDIA’s offering for the Netbook segment). Although this is clearly not unbiased, it is true that stuff like mapping and possibly casual games could benefit from the usage of graphics processors. NVIDIA believes that HTML5 will increase such usage pattern and it looks like the company stands ready to benefit from that windfall – if and when it actually happens.
