COMPUTEX, TAIPEI, TAIWAN—JUNE 2, 2009—NVIDIA, the world leader in visual computing technologies and the inventor of the GPU, announced broad adoption of its award-winning NVIDIA® ION™ graphics processor at the Computex tradeshow today. The new products – introduced at an NVIDIA press conference in Taipei and on display at the show – include small desktop PCs, thin and light notebooks, all-in-one PCs, and low power motherboard solutions which all deliver a full PC experience in a small, low-power system.
The new products include:
See the new ION products on display at Computex at the NVIDIA partner booths in the Nankang Exhibition Hall.
The new NVIDIA ION-based PCs and platform solutions are great for high definition video, mainstream gaming, and GPU-accelerated video and photo editing applications that take advantage of NVIDIA CUDA™ technology.
ION also supports DirectCompute as part of Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 7 operating system. DirectCompute running on NVIDIA’s CUDA compute hardware architecture delivers a major boost for small form factor PCs because it accelerates applications like video editing that run poorly or not at all on today’s low-powered PCs. Other GPU-accelerated applications like vReveal and Badaboom let users quickly edit video and convert it for use on a portable media player like an iPod.
“NVIDIA is really shaking up the small form factor space with ION graphics,” said Rob Enderle, Principal Analyst for the Enderle Group. “Netbooks and nettops are the hottest selling items in the PC space right now, but most are severely limited. ION removes the major chunk of that performance limitation allowing PC vendors the perfect blend of design, performance, and value that drives sales in hard times.”
“Consumer interest in the Acer AspireRevo featuring NVIDIA’s ION graphics has been overwhelming,” said Gianpero Morbello, senior vice president of corporate marketing for Acer. “The Acer AspireRevo clearly demonstrates the power of ION to deliver a full and unique multimedia experience for an amazingly low price. We see strong consumer demand in this space.”
NVIDIA ION graphics processors deliver big performance from small PCs with up to 10X faster graphics than similar systems1. ION graphics support:
