This caused problems for notebook manufacturers, especially with regards to battery life. 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 II , updated pixel shaders with new instructions for Direct3D 8.

DirectX 9 goes mainstreamTech Report, November 27, 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 4jx not have this at all, and the nForce 2’s multi-monitor support was much inferior to what the MX series offered.

Many criticized the GeForce 4 MX name as a misleading marketing ploy since it was less advanced than the preceding GeForce 3. Using third party drivers can, among other things, invalidate warranties. 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.

Although the was initially supposed 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.

One possible solution to the lack of driver support for the Go family is the third party Omega Drivers. This family is a derivative of the GeForce4 MX family, produced for the laptop market.

Retrieved January 2, GeForce Series Video cards Computer-related introductions in Nvidia attempted legal action against a version of Omega Drivers that included the Nvidia logo. However, because the GPU was not designed for the mobile space, it had thermal output similar to the desktop part. Despite its name, the short-lived Go is not part of this lineup, it was instead derived from the Ti line.

The GeForce 4 Ti enjoyed considerable longevity compared to its higher-clocked peers. At the time of their introduction, Nvidia’s main 4xm were the entry-level GeForce 2 MXthe midrange GeForce4 MX models released the same time as the Ti and Tiand the older but still high-performance GeForce 3 demoted to the upper mid-range or performance niche.


There was the Go, Go, and Go. This tactic didn’t work however, for two reasons.

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 even in DirectX 7.

ATI’s Radeon Pro graphics card: 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.
