Ion (commonly referred to as the GeForce 9400M chipset), has been a staple for many netbook and nettop makers, providing Intel's lightweight Atom platform with enough muscle to tackle things like 1080p video playback. Ion 2 will bring support for the VIA Nano, as well as the typical Pentium 4-compatible processors. I haven't caught wind of any official time-frame from Nvidia, but we'll be sure to follow-up accordingly.
This news comes days after the company announced it would halt chipset development for Intel DMI processors, which would imply that the Ion 2 will lack support for Intel Nehalem/Westmere-based chips.
