We know that nVidia is interested in netbooks, but isn’t ready to enter the market yet. However, if DigiTimes’ sources aren’t wrong, we could soon see nVidia 9400M-powered nettops appearing.
Apparently the MCP79 chipset will see Atom support added to its list of compatible CPUs. Supposedly, though, netbook support won’t be coming, at least initially, so it will be desktop-placed systems like the Eee Box only at first.
Of course, we’ve already seen nettops with graphics to beat Intel’s integrated solutions, in the form of Asus’ Radeon 3600-series powered Eee Box line-up. We’ve even seen a netbook with nVidia graphics, too, again from Asus in the form of the N10.
The thought of a nettop with enough grunt to run PhotoShop CS4 (thanks to GPU-acceleration) is pretty compelling…
