The Nvidia Ion platform combines the GeForce 9400 mGPU with the Intel Atom CPU. That combination would be only possible if Intel started selling Atom processors without the Intel chipset (945GSE and 945GC). However, Intel replied to hardware makers that this wouldn't happen, at least anytime near soon. DigiTimes got an Intel comment that "...We have no plans to validate the Nvidia MCP79 chipset on Atom-based nettop or netbook platforms.
