NVIDIA CEO and president Jen-Hsun Huang has revealed to DigiTimes that in 2009 NVIDIA will launch an Ion platform called ION 2 that will support VIA Technologies' Nano CPUs. Huang also noted that the platform is already in development, and it is only a matter of technological time until the final product arrives. VIA Nano are the first 64-bit, superscalar VIA processors. The VIA Nano chips range in clock speeds from 1 GHz to 1.8 GHz and with a proper video support from NVIDIA we can have a winner in the ultra portable world. This will also give nettop and netbook manufacturers an option of building a non-Intel platforms.

Either way, intel should have seen this coming when they told NV where to stick it at the ION+Atom prototype.

Nice, I see NVIDIA taking a pinch at Intel by naming an Atom-competitor based platform Ion "2".

I just wish the VIA was a "better" platform. The more competition the better. VIA is like the Ron Paul of the CPU world.

If indeed Intel locks NVIDIA out of its next-gen QPI-based Atom successor, it only sounds plausible that NVIDIA-VIA platform emerges as the better option. You will be able to use a VIA + MCP79 based netbook to rip iPod videos using Badaboom quicker than what a Dual-core Atom + < insert predictably crappy Intel IGP here > would. 3D apps and videos will run better anyway, so will even Photoshop. Leaving VIA+NVIDIA as the better netbook/nettop platform.

I'm pretty sure AMD said they weren't doing netbooks as they weren't worth having, although that wa a few months ago.

There making the mobos for them not the CPU's so should be a no issue. If i'm right they would only be in trouble if they made cpus.
