nVIDIA’s experiments with the Atom processor have come a long way since the reference model that appeared back in January.  That reference model has birthed 4 models, the IONITX-A-U the IONITX-B-E the IONITX-C-U and the IONITX-D-E.  Ryan had the luck to test out the IONITX-A-U, the flagship of this fleet of all in one motherboards.  See what new tricks it can do in his full review.

If, instead, you are looking for a more standard motherboard, with an accessible CPU socket and places for add in cards, you can check out Steve’s review of the ASUS A3A78-T 790GX board.

“The Zotac IONITX-A-U motherboard, with the Atom 330 processor and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics core is an impressive motherboard for its size, for its power consumption and for the features it includes. The problem with the ION platform is that it can’t compete in raw CPU-based tasks with the likes of the AMD Athlon X2 7750, or even the Intel Celeron processor for that matter, simply because the Intel Atom core is so limited in its computational power. If you were to just look at it from a pricing point of view, the AMD system is a much better performer for the money than Zotac’s ION platform is.”
