    Still waiting for some real world benchmarks of Ion 2 before I decide if it's a good or a bad idea.
    Why won't nVidia invest in VIA? Easiest way to get a x86 license, isn't it?

    If nVidia buys VIA, the licence "disappears"... It's VIA only... nVidia has the money to buy VIA, but VIA doesn't have any value to them if they buy it.

    Well, not buying it entirely of course. Just buying a share.
    Just like Porsche and VW... :D

    NVIDIA is first and foremost a graphics processor venture. That's where they should stay from my point of view. They can't make x86 products. They depend on someone else to provide the processor. This x86 thing is ugly. Time for ARM to step up. Microsoft already knows how to develop for ARM so why don't they make a ARM based Windows and not just Windows CE.

    There is so much that has to go right in this in order to provide a fully working computer platform.
