Anandtech tests the Ion platform - 02-04-2009, 07:03 PM
Some key things noted in the article:
1)NVIDIA expects Ion to add between $50 and $100 to the cost of a typical Atom machine.
2)DDR2 and DDR3 memory (up to DDR3-1066)
3)Full HD video decode support
4)The GeForce 9400M that is specâ€™d for NVIDIAâ€™s Ion platform is the same 9400M used in full sized notebooks. Itâ€™s a 16 SP core running at 550MHz with a 1.4GHz shader clock
5)Platform consumed ~20w idle and ~25w load...this is with the atom 330, a dual core 1.6Ghz
Will be interesting how the final product comes out and who moves away from the intel chipset platform to the new nVidia setup.

I doubt they would put the 330 in netbooks, since the 230/330 are the desktop counterparts.
370 perhaps? (thats what the number scheme would generate a dual core atom for netbooks)
