If the heat sinks are too tall, you might block a DIMM slot or your chipset’s heat sink, depending on your motherboard’s layout. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile. All three families were announced in early ; members within each family were differentiated by core and memory clock speeds. At the time of their introduction, Nvidia’s main products were the entry-level GeForce 2 MX , the midrange GeForce4 MX models released the same time as the Ti and Ti , and the older but still high-performance GeForce 3 demoted to the upper mid-range or performance niche. The MX, which had been discontinued by this point, was never replaced. GeForce 2 4 MX. GeForce Series Video cards Computer-related introductions in

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. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.

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 Geforc4e even in DirectX 7.

As great as multiple monitors are, they haven’t come anywhere close to penetrating the mainstream.

GeForce Series Video cards Computer-related introductions in It did, however, manage to have a much cleaner graphics output than any video card that I’ve seen. Wikimedia Commons has media related to GeForce 4 series.

Despite its name, the short-lived Go is not part of this lineup, it was instead derived from the Ti line. Still, I think the brown PCB looks horrible.

There was the Go, Go, and Go. One possible solution to the lack of driver support for the Go family is the third party Omega Drivers. Still, I suppose the majority of the market would rather have the card be a little cheaper than have an extra RAMDAC that would go unused by most consumers.

It also doesn’t support per-pixel shading either, so again, some of the newer games getting ready to come to market won’t play at their best on this board. 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.

Customize The Tech Report I found it to be a board of compromises, so you’ll have to decide whether or not it fits within your personal requirements for a performance board. Honestly, I could care less what a graphics board looks like; I don’t have any case windows, and it’s rare that I open my case just to stare at the internals.

The initial two models were the Ti and the top-of-the-range Ti The MX, which had been discontinued by this point, was never replaced. Retrieved April 12, While I can sympathize with those who don’t really care much about the internal workings of the board, it is important that we have a solid idea as to the overall capabilities of the card.


While this isn’t a huge issue right now, there are some games getting ready to hit the streets that will require this feature to get the best performance in the game can you say Doom III?

This kept the MX in production while the was discontinued. This doesn’t necessarily mean you should pass it by; game developers haven’t yet taken full advantage of the features that the GeForce4 MX line is lacking.

Steam names the best-selling games of Nvidia attempted legal action against a version of Omega Drivers that included the Nvidia logo.

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 outperformed the Mobility Radeon by a large margin, as well as being Nvidia’s first DirectX 8 laptop graphics solution.
