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 Retrieved April 12, At the time of their introduction, Nvidia’s main products were the entry-level GeForce 2 MXthe midrange Gerorce4 MX models 4400 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.
Despite harsh criticism by gaming enthusiasts, the GeForce4 MX was a market success. All three families were announced in early ; members within each family were differentiated by core and memory clock speeds.

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.
Nvidia attempted legal action against a version of Omega Drivers that included the Nvidia logo.

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.
GeForce 8 9 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. At half the cost of thethe geofrce4 the best balance between price and performance until the launch of the ATI Radeon Pro at the end of ATI’s Radeon Pro graphics card: It outperformed the Mobility Radeon by a large margin, as well as 128mv Nvidia’s first DirectX 8 laptop graphics solution.
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. 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. Retrieved January 2, This caused problems for notebook manufacturers, especially with regards to battery life.
Using third party drivers can, among other things, invalidate warranties. Many criticized the GeForce 4 MX name as a misleading marketing ploy since it was less advanced than the preceding GeForce 3.
Retrieved May 15, Retrieved from ” https: 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. DirectX 9 goes mainstreamTech Report, November 27, Bringing mobile gaming to new heights”.

The MX, which had been discontinued by this point, was never replaced. 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. One step forward, two steps back?
