In Apple rumor news having nothing to do with Steve Jobs’ health, a new Mac mini, featuring Intel’s Atom processor and the same Nvidia GeForce graphics processor found in the new MacBooks and MacBook Pros is said to be set for release in March, according to a report at Tom’s Hardware.

Citing an Nvidia partner as the source for the information, Tom’s reports the refreshed mini will pair Nvidia’s GeForce 9400 graphics processor with Intel’s dual-core 1.6 GHz Atom 330 processor and come to market around the time of CeBit, the world’s largest trade show for information and telecommunications technology, held annually in Hanover, Germany.

An update to Tom’s original report cites conflicting rumor talk out of AppleInsider suggesting that Apple may be using Nvidia’s Ion platform for an updated Apple TV, while acknowledging that no one really knows what’s going on for sure.
