NVIDIA Ion Reference PC Platform Deep Dive

I still want one of these!


The NVIDIA Ion Small Form Factor reference PC platform proved itself to be a powerful multimedia machine with top-notch HD
video playback capability and even a bit of light duty gaming
performance available as well.  In standard desktop and productivity
applications, the machine was about on par with similarly equipped
Intel Atom-based products.  However, when tasked under multimedia
workloads, the Ion offered best-of-class performance.  In our demo
video we also were able to prove out the machine’s capabilities over an
HDMI output, where the Ion showed excellent desktop image quality and
great HD audio and video reproduction over our THX certified amplifier
and through a 50" plasma TV.
