Sure, NVIDIA has been demonstrating how the ION chipset can handle modern video games since the start of the year. But just in case you haven’t gotten the message yet, Xavier from Notebooks.com put together a little video showing one of the newest NVIDIA ION powered laptops playing Call of Duty 4. I’ve embedded the video after the page break.
Sure, he had to set the game’s graphics to the lowest settings. But the gme plays pretty smoothly,. which is pretty impressive for any machine with a low power 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor. Clearly the NVIDIA graphics chip does most of the heavy lifting.
Xavier also has videos showing how the ION chipset helps with video transcoding (with supported software) and video upscaling. You can check those videos uut at Notebooks.com.
