Acer ordered NVIDIA ION 2 chips

Posted on Monday, December 07 2009 @ 18:04:01 CET by

DigiTimes claims Acer ordered NVIDIA ION 2-based chips for systems with Intel's upcoming Atom N450, N470, D510 or D410 processors and related chipsets.
Nvidia has reportedly landed orders for Ion 2-based chips designed to support Intel's upcoming (Pineview) Atom N450, N470, D510 or D410 CPUs and related (Tiger Point) chipsets from Acer, according to sources from PC makers. Nvidia has declined to comment saying it does not respond to market hearsay.

Although the original Ion platform was a chipset with IGP, since Intel's Pine Trail-M for netbook and Pine Trail-D for nettop platforms shift northbridge functions (memory controller and IGP) onto the CPU, Nvidia's Ion 2 design for Intel platforms will resemble and act more like a discrete GPU, the sources noted. Nvidia will also maintain its plans to release a chipset to support VIA Technologies platforms.
