Nvidia confirms Ion platform for VIA

NVIDIA logoJen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of Nvidia, has revealed to Digitimes that Nvidia will launch an Ion platform (Ion 2) supporting VIA Technologies' Nano CPUs in 2009. The platform is already in development, Huang noted.

The two companies have reportedly been discussing such a partnership since early 2008, with Drew Henry, general manager of MCP business at Nvidia recently revealing that Nvidia is considering cooperation with VIA Technologies on a low-cost PC platform.

Henry indicated that the first Ion-based PC product for Intel's Atom CPUs will be a nettop priced at US$299, and it will be launched before June this year.

Nvidia and VIA demonstrated a Nano/GeForce 9400 chipset platform last year during Computex 2008.
