There were 3 initial models: There was the Go, Go, and Go. GeForce Series Video cards Computer-related introductions in It also owed some of its design heritage to Nvidia’s high-end CAD products, and in performance-critical non-game applications it was remarkably effective.

Tesla GeForce 8 9 Firstly, the Ti was perceived as being not good enough for those who wanted top performance who preferred the Tinor those who wanted good value for money 128bm typically chose the Ticausing the Ti to be a pointless middle ground of the two.

NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440-8x

DirectX 9 goes mainstreamTech Report, November 27, This kept the MX in production while the was discontinued. Between capability and competenceTech Report, April 29, Retrieved from ” https: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Nvidia’s eventual answer to the Radeon was the GeForce FXbut despite the ‘s DirectX 9 features it did not have a significant performance increase compared to the MX 128kb in DirectX 7. Nvidia English translation “.


All three families were announced in early ; members within each family were differentiated by core and memory clock speeds. It outperformed the Mobility Radeon by a large margin, as well as being Nvidia’s first DirectX 8 1228mb graphics solution. Nvidia attempted legal action against a version of Omega Drivers that included the Nvidia logo.

The MX, which had been discontinued by this point, was never replaced. Many criticized the GeForce 4 MX name as a misleading marketing ploy since it was less advanced than the preceding GeForce 3.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved January 2, Views Read Edit View history. Despite harsh criticism by gaming enthusiasts, the GeForce4 MX was a market success. One possible solution to the lack of driver support for the Go family is the third party Omega Drivers. At half the cost of thethe remained the best balance between price and performance until the launch of the ATI Radeon Pro at the end of The two new models were the MXX, which was clocked slightly faster than the original MX, and the MXSE, which had a narrower memory bus, and was intended as a replacement of sorts for the MX ATI’s Radeon Pro graphics card: In latethere was an attempt to form a fourth family, also for the laptop market, the only member of it being the GeForce4 Go NV28M which was derived from the Ti line.


In practice its main competitors were chipset-integrated graphics solutions, such as Intel’s G and Nvidia’s own nForce 2, but its main advantage over those was multiple-monitor support; Intel’s solutions did not have this at all, and the nForce 2’s multi-monitor support was much inferior to what the MX series offered.

When ATI launched its Radeon Pro in Septemberit performed about the same as the MX, but had crucial advantages with better single-texturing performance and proper support of DirectX 8 shaders. It was very similar to its predecessor; the main differences were higher core and memory clock rates, a revised memory controller known as Lightspeed Memory Architecture 128mupdated pixel shaders with new instructions for Direct3D 8.

However, because the GPU was not designed for the mobile space, it had thermal output similar to the desktop part. Retrieved June 14, This tactic didn’t work however, for two reasons.

Though its lineage was of the past-generation GeForce 2, the GeForce4 MX did incorporate bandwidth and fill rate-saving techniques, dual-monitor support, and a multi-sampling anti-aliasing unit from 128mh Ti series; the improved bit DDR memory controller was crucial to solving the bandwidth limitations that plagued the GeForce and GeForce 2 lines.
