Ideal/Reference platform for ION2 development ?
Friendly greetings !

I'm developing 3D applications specifically for ION2/Next-Gen platform.

I use an EeePC 1201PN for that, it's not bad but i have some problems :
- Optimus technology is disabled on this model
- The ION2 is connected with PCI-E 1x, which is ... slow. (specifically when doing GPGPU with CUDA/OpenCL)
- i had to use a "modified" driver to update to a recent version because the official asus driver is very old and doesn't support OpenCL /confused.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':confused:' />

Is there a "good" ION2 platform or a "reference" platform usable for development ?
Maybe some kind of NVidia developer program ? (Intel have a developer program for application developped specifically for Atom CPU)

thank you.
Friendly greetings !

I have bought exactly the same netbook, but under windows 7 I'm not able to update the video driver to run cuda toolkit 3.1

how did you get that "modified" driver ??

Im using a Zotac Zbox HD-ID11 ... the same bottleneck problem but not any others
Intel atom D510 1,66GHz Dual core
Next Gen ION
2GB ram
Windows 7

just scores 3944 in 3dmark05 (dont know if its bad or quite good)

I have smooth gaming for need for speed prostreet at everything on lov detail ... im actually happy with that

i thinks its a nice handy lille nettop but not directly compareable with the EeePC 1201PN

Hope it helped a little

Hello,

I'm a newbie in this forum.

I have a problem with ZOTAC ZBOX Blu-Ray HD ID33
- Chipset Intel NM10 Express
- GPU Next-Generation NVIDIA IONâ„¢ w/512MB DDR3, Driverversion 285.58
- Intel® Atom™ D525 (dual-core) (1.8 GHz)
- Front-side bus 800 MHz
- Memory Type DDR2 4GB 800MHz
- Win XP SP3

I tested with a original Blu-Ray (INCEPTION) and
also an *.mkv Matroska-File (7.5GB). It doesn't work
with the VLC-Player (V1.1.11 and also tested with
preliminary version 1.2.0 -> "vlc-1.2.0-pre1-20111122-0004-win32.exe"

It's not fluent and the picture stop after a few seconds.

When I play it with the Cyberlink PowerDVD 11, it works
fine and fluent. So, I think, the Hardware is good/fast
enough.

But there must be a problem with the Interface.
Does PowerDVD 11 works with other (internal)
drivers as VLC?

In the forum.videolan.org I became at least this answer:
[i]"The DXVA2 decoding process is "almost" identical
on all GPUs so only NVIDIA knows what goes wrong."[/i]

hope you can help me a little bit more
