Nvidia ION Netbooks Deliver 10x Faster Graphics And Up To 10 Hours of Battery Life

The Next-generation Nvidia ION graphics processor unveiled today will supercharge netbooks with 10 times the graphics performance of standard netbooks and enable up to 10 hours of battery life thanks to Nvidia Optimus technology. The new Nvidia ION graphics processing unit (GPU) vastly outperforms basic netbook graphics by delivering rich HD media in games, movies, and Internet-based video. Unlike netbooks with Intel integrated graphics, ION netbooks have the power to play amazing HD video smoothly from sites like YouTube and support popular PC games like World of Warcraft.

The new ION netbooks also feature Nvidia’s highly acclaimed Optimus technology, which automatically selects the best graphics processor for running any given application – seamlessly routing the workload to either an Nvidia discrete GPU or Intel integrated graphics. The result is great battery life and superior performance when you need it. The Acer Aspire One 532G (10-inch) and Asus 1201PN (12-inch) are expected to be the first new ION netbooks to be introduced. New all-in-one PCs powered by next-generation ION will include the Asus EeeTop 2010PNT and Lenovo C200.
