Nvidia Ion and Tegra Graphics Showcased
Nvidia has launched a full scale assault on Intel's generally lacklustre integrated graphics. Around 20 Nvidia Ion
-based netbooks, all-in-one PCs, nettops and motherboards have been unveiled here in Taipei. Additionally, the company is also showing a handful of partner-built 'Mobile Internet Devices' that use its Tegra 'computer-on-a-chip' platform. With carrier subsidies, Tegra-based laptops could start as low as $99
when launched later this year. They'll face competition from similar 'Smartbooks' using Qualcomm's rival, and also ARM-based, Snapdragon platform
. Full details and images.
