Here at the NVIDIA 3D Experience Center (http://blogs.nvidia.com/ntersect/2010/05/the-nvidia-3d-experience-comes-to-taipei.html) in downtown Taipei, Next-Generation ION GPUs are showing how powerful small can be.

First, we‚??re showing two new ION netbooks from ASUS, both with Optimus Technology: The 12" 1215PN and the 10" 1015PN. With up to 10X the performance of a standard netbook, ION netbooks can easily stream HD video from YouTube and more, while still delivering great battery life.

Second, this wouldn't be the 3D Experience Center if we weren't showing great 3D content on NVIDIA GPUs. We've got a new Zotac ZBOX here¬*featuring the Next-Generation ION GPU connected to a 55" Samsung 3DTV, playing Blu-Ray 3D Disney clips. For the first time, ION is going 3D!

We're demoing Lenovo IdeaCentre Q150, Asus EeeBox 1012P, Asus EeeBox 1501P and AsRock ION2-T. And, if you‚??re looking for an all-in-one,¬*the Compaq Presario CQ1 is also on display - we usually hear about folks using these as kitchen and bedroom PCs because of their small form factors.

How does ION 2 benchmark in gaming? Somewhere around HD 3850-8800 GT, right?
