Leak reveals Ion 2 in upcoming Asus Eee Top

By on January 15, 2010, 1:42 PM
A leaked promotional document has revealed that Asus is working on an Nvidia Ion 2-equipped Eee Top PC. Geared toward home entertainment, the all-in-one ET2010PNT sits atop a carbon fiber stand and packs a 20-inch multitouch display with a resolution of 1600x1200, a 1.66GHz Atom D510 dual-core processor, a host of display outputs, and Windows 7.


It's worth noting that the marking blurb actually says the system houses an "Nvidia GeForce G310 Ion 2 graphics with hardware video decoding." That can imply one of two things: either the new Eee Top will have both an Ion 2 and a GeForce G310, or more likely, the just-released G310 chip will carry the Ion 2 branding. Reports suggest the Ion 2 will act more like a discrete graphics chip -- but your guess is as good as ours.

Asus hasn't announced a price or ship date.

I'm keeping my eye on that chip! (hehe get it eye on / ion? Nobody?) Actually, I'd love to see it in a Seashell netbook.
