The first Nvidia Ion 2 netbook has been benchmarked, and the early results are disappointing: the Acer Aspire One 532G's next-gen GPU managed to underperform the older Ion LE.

The benchmarking was done by Netbook News while at MWC, who managed to run a 3DMark03 graphics benchmark test during their hands-on time. The resulting score of 3,049 is lower than some Ion LE netbooks achieve; the Samsung N510, for example, scores a 3,593.

Isn't a benchmark as old as that more system dependant than anything else?

Not making excuses, just worth considering.
