Acer is reportedly working on a minor update to the Aspire One AOD255 netbook. According to Macles, the main difference between the AOD255 and the upcoming Acer Aspire One AOD256 will be the inclusion of a Quartics QV1271 media co-processor in the latter model.
The Quartics card will go in a mini-PCIe slot, and is designed to support 1080p HD video playback as well as real-time conversion of 2D to 3D video.
Just a few days ago, Netbook News spotted evidence that Acer was adding driver support for the Quartics media co-processor to two of its netbooks. Now it looks like Acer may be thinking of giving netbooks with the media card an entirely new model number.
