Inno3D ION

1. Features, retail package

Nvidia's ION platform has become very popular product among users offering a good 3D and Video performance while it remains affordably priced. ION's graphics processors turn up the visuals on compact, low-power PCs with performance up to 10X faster than similar systems. When combined with a low-power CPU like Intel's Atom, ION graphics processors transform traditional under-performing PC designs into a premium experience.

- Key Benefits

  • Premium DirectX 10 graphics with advanced digital display connectivity
  • Full 1080p HD video with true-fidelity 7.1 audio
  • NVIDIA CUDA technology to accelerate the most demanding applications, vastly improving your PC’s ability to work with visual content such as video encoding
  • Premium Windows experience with Windows Vista and Windows 7

Today we have in our labs the Inno3D ION-based solution. Being part of the 'iChiLL' series of products, it offers improved features and specifications compared to Nvidia's reference design for the platform.

The Inno3D ION is packaged into a large box despite the relatively compact size of the main device, indicating that this product comes fully loaded. We found the product sold online for about €140 (including VAT), which is somewhat more than what you would spend for other ION-based solutions. However, as we will see later on, the Inno3D ION comes fully-featured and it is addressed to a specific target group.

Many components are found into the box:

Besides the ION mainboard, the package includes SATA cables, a CD-ROM with drivers, a printer manual, a back plate, a Wifi antenna, a CPU cooler, a mini ac/dc adapter and a power cable.
