在6月1日的時候,nVIDIA辦了一場記者會,談的主題自然與GPU有關,新聞稿談到nVIDIA與Supermicro共同發表全新等級伺服器。不過筆者到場的時候,剛好聽到Win 7新增機能的部分,大約就是談談Win 7下有更好的表現。但個人的興趣,是在旁邊的ION系統,有一堆廠商關於ION的產品,所以個人的主重點就放在ION上了。







在現場看到ION的Netop中,有AsRock ION 330、Acer AspireRevo、Colorful iHTPC、MSI Wind Box D200、Mouse Computer LM-M1205、Pegatron IPP7A-CP、Foxconn[JTX-N]等。



而All in one的則有ECS Morph,外型看來還算吸引人。



至於netbook,則有Lenovo IdeaPad S12、Weibu N10A以及Telcast TL-1000N。




三台netbook中,大概只有聯想的S12有機會進台灣吧。





此外,同樣是ION的Netop,Acer與MSI在設計上就有不同的理念。比如說MSI的D200,寧可體積大些,也要有光碟機的設計,而Acer顯然就是比 較體積上的考量,不放光碟機。而在連接介面上來說,HDMI介面是一定有的,至於另一個介面,Acer採用D-sub,而MSI採用DVI。從這兒也可以 看得出差別。

不過話又說回來,如果目前就是這些廠商才有出ION的話,老實說,實在是少了一些。尤其以台灣來說的話,ION平台有機會的,也才約三、四種,在這種情形下來看,能見度顯然很低。

加油呀,希望能夠有更多的廠商採用。

nVIDIA hosted a press conference on June 1st, and most of it was about their GPU. Their official press release talked about the collaboration between nVIDIA and Supermicro on a new server system. However, when we got there, they were talking about some new features supporting Windows 7. Personally, I was more interested in the ION systems being displayed at the scene. The Netops shown here are AsRock ION 330, Acer AspireRevo, Colorful iHTPC, MSI Wind Box D200, Mouse Computer LM-M1205, Pegatron IPP7A-CP and Foxconn[JTX-N]. An interesting note is that even though all of these Netops are built on the ION architecture, different companies have very different approaches when it comes to their product design. For example, MSI's D200 still includes an optical drive when Acer ditched it for a much reduced size. Also, while both of these companies include HDMI ports, Acer uses D-sub while MSI opts for DVI. Nevertheless, we expected to see more Taiwanese companies put forward ION products.
