Acer last week announced its Aspire One 532G netbook as the first to carry Nvidia's forthcoming Ion 2, but few details have been revealed about the next-gen graphics chip. Some folks at NetbookNews recently got their hands on the Aspire One 532G at Mobile World Congress, and they managed to sneak in a 3DMark 03 graphics benchmark.

The video references up to 10 hour battery life, which wasn't possible with intense power consumption of the initial Ion. It appears there is a slight reduction in performance for a considerable reduction in power consumption. I seek respectable video performance and exceptional battery life. These initial demonstrations are encouraging.

Video cards usually have mentionable driver improvements soon after a new chip is released. I typically wait 6 months before I find that the drivers are up to speed.

I said in the past that IMO the Ion is an overkill for an Atom. You can have a lower performing chip and get the same performance, because the Atom is the bottleneck. A lower performance chip can give you the same experience in this situation, while taking less power and costing less. Maybe NVIDIA thought so too.
