Nvidia will release updated version of Ion platform “Ion 2” with wider processor support. The second generation of Ion platform will support Via Nano, Atom, Celeron, Pentium, Core 2 Duo and Quad processors. This will allow real 5x graphic speed upgrade over existing integrated graphic Intel chipsets.

Intel has new strategy how to avoid competition on the market with new announced Pineview series of 45 nm Atom processors. New Atom CPU's will come with integrated memory controller and graphic core on the same chip. This will cut the motherboard space for almost 60 % and so the overall computer price will be lower. But graphics unit will be the same, smaller but based on feature limited GMA950 so lower price and size will not bring the performance improvements as NVIDIA Ion platform.

According to NVIDIA, new option will push netbook and nettop makers to use only Intel's graphics despite relatively little improvement. As a response of that, NVIDIA will expand Ion support for the Via Nano and all Intel line notebook and desktop processors insuring 5X graphics performance boost using same watt power compared to Intel chipset version and also taking a big piece of Intel chipset market.

The big netbook and notebook producers already express interest about new platform and we, at DetectorPRO, are really impressed.
