Zotac ION ITX-O-E Driver
Hello, I am currently using a Zotac IONITX-B-E and made good experience with it. I would like to build a new ION system, and wonder what the. ?sku= Intel Atom solutions paired up with NVIDIA ION are very popular. We also rated the Mini ITX ION-A Motherboard very highly for it's excellent So will Zotac's latest pint size offering be a hit or just a gimmick?

From a home theater angle, the ION platform also offers a lot: In truth, playing high bit-rate movies on the Intel Atom processor would be simply impossible without the power of NVIDIA's ION platform and if you are looking for the lowest power consumption solution for your Zotac ION ITX-O-E theater PC it's going Zotac ION ITX-O-E be nearly impossible to best this option. Though in my view the jury is still out on whether or not CUDA can become a notable success before the wave of OpenCL software begins to arrive, applications like Badaboom!
All the while, it's been tied to an antiquated G-series chipset and thoroughly underpowered GMA graphics. Certainly, you've heard this story before.
The Atom possesses just enough horsepower to offer "fast enough" performance with basic 2D desktop tasks. Zotac ION ITX-O-E, it can't handle HD video playback on its own, and the perhaps inappropriately named Graphics Media Accelerator offers little assistance in that department.
The GMA is also woefully ill-equipped to handle games, with basic compatibility a potentially more glaring issue than the GPU's anemic performance. Had the Atom stuck to MIDs, its platform's shortcomings might have been less apparent. The respective power hardware is built right into the motherboard affording a potentially even smaller PC, where the inevitable optical drives and hard drives are powered from a Molex socket on the Zotac ION ITX-O-E itself - that's somewhat ingenious to say Zotac ION ITX-O-E least, but we do question how much power this one socket can provide.
We're not wanting to burn out an expensive board with Zotac ION ITX-O-E hard drives and a Blu-ray drive daisy chained off a single connector. Click to enlarge As you might be able to see in the pictures, this board is missing the ATX socket but there are boards that will ship with it, so if you're not needing the extra expense of this power hardware then there will be cheaper alternatives.
Partly that's a function of the modest processing power of the Atom chip itself. But it also reflects the absolutely feeble Intel integrated graphics with which it's been paired.
You could say, therefore, that what Atom really needs is a new chipset with decent graphics. Geforce M by another name Actually, Ion is nothing new.
