Intel Not only has Intel teamed up TSMC to produce Atom CPUs, the company has also unveiled four Atom chips that will go into devices such as entertainment systems for cars, videoconferencing devices, robots and interactive kiosks. "The Z500-series Atom processors are integrated chips the size of a penny that draw little power and do not require fans to operate. The chips draw 2.5 watts of power or less and run at speeds of between 1.10GHz and 1.6GHz. They offer integrated 2D and 3D graphics and will be manufactured using Intel's existing 45-nanometer process."

Yeap, that is what he is saying - ignoring the fact that anyone can go down to a Sony Style store today and find that the apparent 'not getting along' between ION and Atom, seem to be getting along well.


Which Sony product has the Atom and ION chipset? The P-series doesn't use the ION platform.

You're correct; I saw the Nvidia logo and assumed that Nvidia logo plus Atom equaled the Ion platform. I should have made sure before firing off a post ;)

No worries. I just researched the hell out of the netbook, ultraportable market recently.

I ended up with a ASUS eeepc 1000HE. ION was just announced and no one makes an ION based netbook. I was surprised that I missed the Sony. I looked at the sony P, TT and Z but neither had a ION and were too expensive otherwise. Decided the 1000HE was the best bang for the buck.
