The Ion is not a CPU. It's a platform that pairs a comparatively powerful nVidia graphics chip with a regular Atom CPU. More info at Wikipedia.
A Ion netbook should be much better at 3D gaming and at HD video playback than a netbook with a Intel graphics chip. But virtually all other software won't see an improvement. Web pages won't render faster, spreadsheets won't open faster, etc.
