Cripple no more


Nvidia's ION has been around for a while now, and it was recently joined by an inbred, crippled version dubbed ION LE.

The main difference between the two is the lack of DirectX 10 support on the LE version. However, it seems that it's possible to tweak vendor drivers and unlock DirectX 10 support on the LE.
