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. Despite its name, the short-lived Go is not part of this lineup, it was instead derived from the Ti line.

GeForce 8 9 Gdorce kept the MX in production while the was discontinued. This tactic didn’t work however, for two reasons. There was the Go, Go, and Go. 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.

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.

All three families were announced in early ; members within each family were differentiated by core and memory clock speeds. GeForce 2 4 MX. Retrieved June 14, Retrieved May 15, Nvidia English translation “. Many criticized the GeForce 4 MX name as a misleading marketing ploy since it was less advanced than the preceding GeForce 3. Nvidia attempted legal action against a version of Omega Drivers that included the Nvidia logo.


At the time of their introduction, Nvidia’s main products 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.

However, because the GPU was not designed for the mobile space, it had thermal output similar to the desktop part.

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 mx40000 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.


When ATI launched its Radeon Pro in Septemberit performed about the same as the MX, but had crucial advantages with better single-texturing gforcf and proper support of DirectX 8 shaders. The MX, which had been discontinued by this point, was never replaced.

In motion-video applications, the GeForce4 MX offered new functionality.

Between capability and competenceTech Report, April 29, It was very similar gfogce 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.

Despite harsh criticism by gaming enthusiasts, the GeForce4 MX was a market success.
