That is why this card is referred to the MX class despite its design. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It’s fast and offers a high AA level; however, it makes textures blurry in many cases. Luckily for us, today we’re able to talk about an egg we’ve been sitting on for a few months now. Many criticized the GeForce 4 MX name as a misleading marketing ploy since it was less advanced than the preceding GeForce 3.

Test results Before I estimate 2D quality I must warn you that at present there is no a complete technique of objective estimation of this parameter because: However, for the GeForce4 Ti it refers geforxe4 its rated frequency.

As for the MXthis is a good m460 for those who don’t need a so modern support of pixel shaders, but who wants dualhead and VIVO. Now it is possible to display an image on a TV screen in x without additional utilities: The advantage over the GeForce2 Ti is really striking, and even the MX was able to outdo the latter though they belong to the same price niche.

This is the rarest card, like all other products from Triplex.

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.


GeForce4 cards have unusual coolers.

Index Three times’s a charm, but what about the fourth? Such construction of the cooler was used in the GeForce4 MX video card.

There were 3 initial models: Overclocking The card has a slow SDR memory which will be a bottleneck for the performance. Flexible support of all possible modes and of output of two frame buffers independent in resolution and in contents onto any accessible signal receivers. Although the MX has the same optimization, the low fillrate makes the effect. As usual, The Golden Sample cards have two operating modes: On both cards this chip located under the cooler shows the chip’s codename – NV The mode must be set in course of installation of the software.

However, because the GPU was not designed for the mobile space, it had thermal output similar to the desktop part. The Quincunx AA is improved positions of sample fetching are shifted.

It is very unpleasant that Gainward follows this approach. The initial two models were the Ti and the top-of-the-range Ti Tesla GeForce 8 9 Xm460 new AA method appeared – 4xS. This benchmark loads accelerators with complicated geometry as well as with huge textures and a great deal of effects.

The cheapest Gfeorce4 has a more attractive price than the MX despite wider 3D capabilities. The MX loses to the GeForce3 Tibut the overclocking makes them faster, and sometimes the Ti is not able to keep its leading position. First of all, it concerns positions of the memory modules and a low-profile form-factor.

We saw a similar configuration of the heatsink on the GeForce2 Ti based card. I just hope it won’t cost an arm and a leg. GeForce4 MX doesn’t support 3D textures. A complicated shader calculates both specific transformations and geometrical functions.
