The MX, which had been discontinued by this point, was never replaced. Retrieved January 2, 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. There was the Go, Go, and Go.

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 gfrce4 did not have this at all, and the nForce 2’s multi-monitor support was much inferior to what the MX series offered. This nx the MX in production while the was discontinued.

This family is a derivative of the GeForce4 MX family, produced for the laptop market.

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 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.

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. Using third party drivers can, among other things, invalidate warranties.
