NVIDIA quietly launched ION LE

Posted on Tuesday, August 04 2009 @ 14:53:16 CEST by

FUD Zilla reports NVIDIA silently rolled out ION LE, a new ION base model for entry-level Windows XP netbooks and nettops that only supports DirectX 9.
“ION LE is SKU of the ION GPU that is identical to “ION, except it only supports DX9. This product is designed specifically for Windows XP on Netbooks and Nettops and we are going to offer LE SKU just for OEM market. “

This makes perfect sense as Microsoft is probably going to charge the OEMs less if the product only has DirectX 9 driver and not the DirectX 10. Most of IONs are still going to be sold with Windows XP, but we are sure that some clients will like the fact that ION will also work with Windows 7 and have the capability on DirectX 10, but just not in ION LE version.
