NVIDIA ION 2 Actually GeForce G310?

by Reads (4,885)

A French site dedicated to netbooks and nettops has uncovered an image talking about one of ASUS’ upcoming all-in-ones, the ET2010PNT.  This stylish new multitouch machine uses Intel’s PineTrail desktop Atom processor, a multitouch screen, and NVIDIA’s ION 2 GPU.

While by and large it seems like this could be legit, one thing did leap out at us—the specifications section lists the 20-inch display as being 1600×1200 in resolution.  That’s highly unlikely, given trends in the industry; a much more likely resolution would be 1680×1050 or even 1600×900.  Whether it’s a typo from ASUS or mistake on the part of the hoaxer is unknown. 

What does it mean for ION? Well, the GeForce G310 is a rebadged G210, which means we can gleam a few interesting features out of it, like a clock speed of 589 MHz, 64-bit interface and 512MB of DDR2 RAM.  Still only DirectX 10.1, though, unfortunately.
