NVIDIA Ion Netbooks June

The first netbooks set to use NVIDIA's Ion platform are due in June, according to a source within NVIDIA itself. Pocket-lint understands that multiple important companies will announce their first systems with the faster graphics at Taiwan's Computex show in early June. Who and which models aren't illustrated, but in some cases the turnaround would be relatively quick and have the first wave of Ion netbooks ship in July.

Ion is already being used in nettops like the Acer AspireRevo but has yet to be used in mini notebooks, where battery life and size constraints prevent these systems from using dedicated graphics. The NVIDIA-made chipset is, on average, several times faster for graphics than Intel's integrated video and can handle 1080p video as well as a moderate amount of 3D without putting as much strain on the Intel Atom processor or hurting battery life.
