    Nvidia ION 2 - anytime soon?

    Hi All

    I'm looking to build a media box for the lounge, and was looking at an Atom + Ion Solution.

    However, it seems that the ION 2 chipset is due anytime - does anyone know when we can expect to see MiniITX motherboards based around this - as I don't want to go down the ION route then the ION 2 appear the day after.

    Cheers

    Si.

    from what Ive seen of it so far Ion 2 isnt all that good, giving some very odd results when benched. I have an Ion HTPC and was the best investment I've made in a long time, well except now I have to dl everything in HD

    IIRC you'll get a slight increase in CPU performance, but GPU is about the same. I'd reference where I read it from, but can't for the life of me remember
