Netbook from ASUS with Nvidia Ion 2 will be released in April

Friday, January 22, 2010

Originally released on the market netbooks do not have the hardware capabilities and supports playback of HD video quality. One solution to this problem has become a platform Nvidia Ion, which was demonstrated at CES 2009. And, as we already reported, it is replaced by a platform developed by Nvidia Ion 2. One of the first new platform will get the device production Asustek Computer, a popular series of Eee PC. In this line of appearance of the first devices with the graphic platform Nvidia Ion 2 should be expected in April this year.

At present the company produces ASUS netbooks based on the processor Intel Atom N270, N280 and N450. It is expected that soon will be released a model with 12-inch diagonal screen. In this model, built on the basis of processor N270 and N280, will be gradually removed from the market, and the cost of devices with N450 in the second quarter will be reduced. Until the end of February the company intends to release a 10-inch model with a rotating screen, and from April to begin shipping netbook platform Nvidia Ion 2. Netbook with 12-inch screen sizes will be built not on the basis of processor Intel Atom, but will have a platform AMD Congo. Also in N-series devices will appear with the ports of USB 3.0.
