Don't let NVIDIA's recent announcement
that they'll be steering clear of Intel DMI CPUs get you down, man. According to the fine folks at Fudzilla
, the company will indeed unveil its Ion 2 chipset
before the year's end. The second-generation platform is said to feature much faster graphics, over twice the shaders, a smaller die, and support for the VIA Nano as well as the usual compliment of Pentium 4-compatible CPUs. No word yet from the company itself, but you'll know as soon as we do. Promise.
