Default NVIDIA Ion Platform Preview

As much as I can appreciate beauty, what truly matters here is whatís on the inside and thatís what NVIDIA gave me the opportunity to do over this past week. If you havenít already seen it, what Iím talking about is NVIDIAís Ion reference platform. In a nutshell itís Intelís Atom processor paired with NVIDIAís GeForce 9400M chipset.


I point-blank asked NVIDIA what is required for an OEM to develop an Ion based system. NVIDIA responded by saying that the only thing necessary is that the OEM purchase a GeForce 9400M chipset, there are no required platforms or anything like that. The Ion reference PC is nothing more than a reference, it doesnít need to be followed.

There are a few dozen Ion reference platforms out in the hands of OEMs and decision makers in the industry. NVIDIA expects Ion to add between $50 and $100 to the cost of a typical Atom machine.
