Optimus Acer

Acer unveiled its latest netbook offering with the 10.1 inch Acer Aspire One 532G at the Mobile World Conference.

The netbook has a Pintrail CPU and GPU at its core and suplements this using NVIDIA’s ION2 with NVIDIA’s much talked about Optimus technology.

Optimus allows the hardware to switch from a more hungry GPU to an integrated model to save batter power seamlessly. Before Optimus this was done through software or a reboot of the machine but now the technology allows little user input or knowledge for it to work. As NVIDIA have to compete with graphics cores integrated into the CPU package from Intel, NVIDIA have found a way to evangelize its much more powerful ION2 GPU. ION2 allows Flash acceleration as well as decent 3D playing capabilities and HD playback in various formats – something the Intel graphics solution would struggle with.

Hopefully you can find the netbook in stores near you around April.
