Acer Aspire Revo NVIDIA Ion based nettop gets tested

Posted on Monday, April 27 2009 @ 18:01:56 CEST by

German tech site PC Games Hardware briefly got their hands on the NVIDIA Ion based Acer Aspire Revo desktop PC, this system features an Intel Atom processor with NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics. In the test report, the site checks out what the Ion nettop is capable of. Their test sample had the Atom 230, 2GB DDR2 memory and Windows Vista Home Premium, you can check it out over here.

The HD video performance seemed to be pretty good, WMV video with a bitrate of 40Mb/s, 1080p MKV video and a Blu-ray of Batman Beings (via an external drive) all played without any lag. However, the machine did have trouble with HD flash videos and HD clips from YouTube.

The gaming performance of the Ion platform is only average though, simple games like Spore should run fine but the Aspire Revo is no match for more graphically intense games like Call of Duty 4. PC Games Hardware reports they got only 9FPS in this game and that was at 800 x 600 pixels with minimal details.

The power consumption of this system is said to be very low, only 8W when idling and 28W at workload.
