  1. Nvidia has quietly introduced a new Ion integrated graphics processor today. Dubbed Ion LE, this entry-level version of Nvidia’s netbook graphics chip is pretty much identical to its older sibling, except it only supports DirectX 9 and not the Ion’s DirectX 10. The idea, of course, is to lower costs while still providing superior performance compared to Intel’s lackluster 945GSE chipset and even the newer GN40 part.

    I like Nvidia and all but this is just moronic. If they had did this as a secondary initial offering it would have made sense, but having it this close to when Win 7 comes out (a Direct X 10/11 OS) makes this obsolete before it even gets a chance to be adopted. Nvidia should have just taken this time to invest more into ION2 or the once based on VIA's nano. c'est la vi.
