The NvidiaIonchipset took the ultraportable computing world by storm this year. Now, as 2010 draws nigh, Ion 2 is getting closer and closer to its inaugural launch. Digitimes reports that the first Ion 2-based chip orders have been sent to Nvidia by Acer. These Ion 2 chips are designed to work with the new Intel Pineview Atom CPUs, due out in 2H of next year. Acer's most successful Ion-packing line has been the AspireRevo series of net-tops, and we look forward to seeing some Ion 2 Revos hit in 2010.
The main difference between the Ion and Ion 2 chipset seems to be that the Ion 2 acts much more like a discrete GPU. This is due to the fact that Pine Trail M and D push memory control and IGP functions onto the CPU. Nvidia's also working on a version of the Ion for VIA's processors, but no more information on that project is available yet.Nvidia hasn't commented on any of this, but the timing works out right and Digitimes is usually spot-on about this sort of thing. More information about Ion 2 should start to hit as we roll into the new year.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
