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. This tactic didn’t work however, for two reasons. There was the Go, Go, and Go. This family is a derivative of the GeForce4 MX family, produced for the laptop market. At half the cost of the , the remained the best balance between price and performance until the launch of the ATI Radeon Pro at the end of Despite its name, the short-lived Go is not part of this lineup, it was instead derived from the Ti line.

One step forward, two steps back? At the time of their introduction, Nvidia’s main products were the entry-level GeForce 2 MXthe midrange GeForce4 Gfoce models released the same time as gtorce Ti and Tiand the older but still high-performance GeForce 3 demoted to the upper mid-range or performance niche.
ATI’s Radeon Pro graphics card: GeForce 2 4 MX. There were 3 initial models: Nvidia English translation “. Although the was initially gofrce to be part of the launch of the GeForce4 line, Nvidia had delayed its release to sell off the soon-to-be discontinued GeForce 3 chips. 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.
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 IIupdated pixel shaders with new instructions for Direct3D 8. Nvidia attempted legal action against a version of Omega Drivers that included the Nvidia logo. In consequence, Nvidia rolled out a slightly cheaper model: Using third party drivers can, among other things, invalidate warranties.
However, because the GPU was not designed for the mobile space, it had thermal output similar to the desktop part.
PassMark – GeForce4 MX – Price performance comparison
The GeForce 4 Ti enjoyed considerable longevity compared to its higher-clocked peers. 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 the Ti series; the improved bit DDR memory controller was crucial to solving the bandwidth limitations that plagued the GeForce and GeForce 2 lines. Despite its name, the short-lived Go is not part of bforce lineup, it was instead derived from gfofce Ti line.
Bringing mobile gaming to new heights”. 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 This family is a derivative of the GeForce4 MX family, produced for the laptop market.

It also owed some of its design heritage to Nvidia’s high-end CAD products, and in gfofce non-game applications it was remarkably effective. 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.
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.
