Hello. I'm an Nvidia customer. I have recently purchased the ASUS 1215n, which comes with the Nvidia ION 2 card.
The Asus website seems to recommend only the driver I currently have, the 267.54 version, and when I checked your latest drivers in the nvidia website for ION, there is a note saying the following:
"Notebooks supporting Hybrid Power technology with Intel chipsets are not supported by this release."
This basically means that although you claim to support the ION in my computer, you don't actually support it. Which is very confusing. I would like to know if the latest drivers in actual fact support my computer, and improve anything since my older driver? And are there plans to improve the support for ION 2 cards? As I've read so far, there seem to be a lot of complaints about the latest drivers giving bad results in games.
I too am getting horrible results from games, even older ones ilke Warcraft 3. I am not interested in giving specific test results, but only in receiving your official answer regarding this card and my computer. I have been ignored so far on your forums:
Inspector Assaf Koss,
I also checked your laptop specifications and your does not support NVIDIA Hybrid Power technology, it only supports NVIDIA Optimus. NVIDIA Optimus technology optimizes your notebook PC, providing the outstanding graphics performance you need, when you need it, all the while extending battery life for longer enjoyment. NVIDIA Optimus is software that allows you to use the required GPU as and when needed and this is completely different from NVIDIA Hybrid Power technology which is discontinued.
This is a follow up from my last email. I was advised to upgrade into the latest non-beta driver by your tech support on email.
Since that I am still experiencing unacceptable lags during game play in both Warcraft 3 and C&C Generals, both very old games now. This recurs constantly, disregarding of situation, reboots, etc' etc'. EVEN MY INTEGRATED INTEL GPU WORKS SMOOTHER IN LOW QUALITY SETTINGS! I AM CURRENTLY USING IT, SADLY.
I am also experiencing a new issue, of the computer crashing every time I resume from Hibernation. This has ONLY happened immediately after installing the new driver, and nothing else was changed. No doubts here.

Is there any chance that the card I got with this computer being defected?
Inspector Assaf Koss,
Thanks for the update.
Please be informed that NVIDIA does not have any drivers as ION2 is in Hybrid SLI in your ASUS 1215N and NVIDIA drivers are not compatible with notebooks that supports Hybrid SLI with Intel graphics.
Since ION2 is an End-of-Life product, there wont be any future drivers from NVIDIA, only possible place to find this driver is from your notebook manufacturers.
Please note that NVIDIA manufactures the chipsets for the laptop graphic adapters and they are integrated with the motherboards made by the laptop manufacturers. Thus the architecture of the chipset is to be custom designed for different laptops models. The drivers provided by NVIDIA are generic and thus all the functions are not working with the NVIDIA drivers.
