Though its lineage was of the past-generation GeForce 2, the GeForce4 MX did incorporate 400 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.

Kepler GeForce Retrieved Gforec 12, 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. However, because the GPU was not designed for the mobile space, it had thermal output similar to the desktop part.

Despite harsh criticism by gaming enthusiasts, the GeForce4 MX was a market success. 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 m the upper mid-range or performance niche.

The MX, which had been discontinued by this point, was never replaced. 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.


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 who typically chose the Ticausing the Ti to be a pointless middle ground of the two.

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.
