Mobile broadband laptop and netbook users to consume 1.3 exabytes of video per month worldwide by 2017

This figure will account for nearly three quarters of all global traffic via mobile broadband portables. The top region for video consumption will be Asia Pacific, which will account for just over half (53%) of all video traffic globally. To contrast, Europe will account for 26% of all global video traffic, and North America 14%.

Imagine this, an entire PC, capable of decoding and playing full 1080p HD video content, in a box that fits in the palm of your hand with a 3″ x 4″ motherboard. Based on Intel’s 1.6GHz Atom 330 processor with the hearty support of NVIDIA’s GeForce 9400M core logic MCP with 16 integrated GeForce graphics cores, NVIDIA’s Ion has to be one of the most capable Atom-based small form-factor solutions to be built thus far.
Check out the video below in which, Drew Henry, General Manager of NVIDIA’s MCP Business Unit covers NVIDIA’s tiny new Ion small form factor PC platform equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M.
