Half-power NVIDIA Ion 2 GPU for smaller netbooks explains dreary benchmarking?

We've been all over NVIDIA's new next-generation Ion 2 today, but that excitement has now been tempered by a little small-print confusion over exactly what you're getting in your fancy new netbook.  According to a confidential NVIDIA slide posted by PC Watch, the graphics company will actually be pushing two versions of Ion 2: one for 12-inch netbooks and desktops, with 16 CUDA cores, and another for 10-inch netbooks with just 8 CUDA cores.

NVIDIA Ion 2 officially announced: 10x graphics grunt & 10hr battery life

NVIDIA have officially launched their next-generation Ion GPU, intended to give netbooks and nettops a graphics boost.  It comes as little surprise, given we saw Acer's Aspire One 532G netbook using the new GPU a few weeks back at MWC 2010, but the company have also announced that ASUS' 12-inch Eee PC 1201P will use the chipset, as well as more than 30 products from other companies including AOpen, AsRock, Asus, Foxconn, J&W, Pegatron, POV, Shuttle and Zotac.

NVIDIA Ion 2 launch delayed at manufacturer request

NVIDIA have officially confirmed that the next-gen "Ion 2" (not the final name) graphics chipset is in the works, but it won't be arriving quite as soon as many had hoped.  The company told Fudzilla that the Ion 2 won't see an official launch until later in Q1 2010, as opposed to the Q4 2009 unveil we'd expected; that's apparently because hardware manufacturers want to milk a few more sales out of first-gen Ion devices before the new chip arrives.
