Video demo: IE9 with NVIDIA Ion hardware acceleration

We’ll soon live in an age when netbooks have both CPUs and GPUs and it will be grand. Unicorns and rainbows will dance off of our screens in harmony — and Internet Explorer might become relevant again. The video after the jump shows what IE9 is capable of when a next-generation NVIDIA Ion GPU is paired with an Intel Atom CPU verses a standard netbook with an Atom all by itself. The differences are obvious and makes a solid case for Internet Explorer. But most of us will probably visit the International Space Station before setting IE as our default browser even if it renders graphics faster. [via liliputing]
