from what I've seen ION2 is a feature set C system since it's based on
the GT210/220 hardware (I believe some have called it GT218, a bit
better than the GT210 but not quite as good as the GT220) which means
it will be able to offload MPEG4 decoding to the GPU which the first
series of ION could not.

The ION"1" is feature set B, so no mpeg4 support
