      Phoronix: NVIDIA ION Linux Performance

      Earlier this year NVIDIA introduced the ION, which is their new system platform that pairs a GeForce 9400M GPU with an Intel Atom processor to make it an appealing platform for those desiring a netbook or nettop computer but are interested in a higher level of graphics performance than what is currently possible with Intel's integrated graphics. Products using the NVIDIA ION have been slow to emerge, but in recent weeks, we have begun seeing more devices around, including those from smaller manufacturers. One company that is now selling an ION-powered nettop is ZaReason, which is a Linux-focused hardware company. In this article we have a whole arsenal of Linux-based tests showing off the NVIDIA graphics performance with the Intel Atom processor under Linux.

      And what about sound or silent ...

        A very desirable add-on to the test suite

        I love the hardware/linux reviews you create... thank you for that!

        When it comes to the new ION platform however, there is one test
        I would like to see added to the reviews:

        Flash Playback in full screen:
        - HD flash: http://www.adobe.com/products/hdvideo/hdgallery/
        - Hulu samples
        - Youtube samples.

        All the number crunching with the various games is all fine in most
        cases but it still fails to let us know how the thing will behave
        if we try to put it in the living room running boxee!

        I don't expect a quantitative review, just a subjective: works well or
        a little jerky etc....
        Thanks in advance and keep up the great work!

          Just built an Ion nettop a little while ago. Most flash is laughably bad, the Atom can barely scale regular flash to 1280x720, forget about HD flash. When there's adequate GPU accelerated Flash for Linux, this'll be better, but not now. Fullscreen Hulu is out too.

          As for power consumption, I'm receiving 17 watts idle, 21-22 watts under full CPU and GPU load.
