NVIDIA Ion, The Next-Generation

NVIDIA has just made its next-generation Ion graphics processors official. You might have heard that Ion-Next was slower than the first generation Ion… well this is wrong.

NVIDIA Ion 2 could arrive on a PCI Express card

NVIDIA’s Ion 2 platform has been rumored to arrive in the form of a PCI Express card, but that has yet to be confirmed, It does make sense for this move to be taken, however, since slotting in a standalone video card into any netbook would mean having the instant ability of switching between graphical platforms, where you can choose between the Ion 2 for HD video and some gaming, […]

Intel Said To Be Using Pricing Pressure Against NVIDIA’s ION
