There was the Go, Go, and Go. All three families were announced in early ; members within each family were differentiated by core and memory clock speeds. Nvidia’s eventual answer to the Radeon was the GeForce FX , but despite the ‘s DirectX 9 features it did not have a significant performance increase compared to the MX even in DirectX 7. 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. In late , there 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.

This tactic didn’t work however, for two reasons. However, because the GPU was not designed for d64j mobile space, it had thermal output similar to the desktop part. 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 geforfe4 the improved bit DDR memory controller was crucial to solving the bandwidth limitations that plagued the GeForce and GeForce 2 lines.
The MX, which had been discontinued by this point, was never replaced.

In practice geforrce4 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.
One possible solution to the lack of driver support for the Go family is the third party Omega Drivers. This kept the MX in production while the was discontinued. Comparison of Nvidia graphics processing units.

Retrieved January 2, One step forward, two steps back? GeForce 2 4 MX.
Despite its name, the short-lived Go is not part of this lineup, it was instead derived from the Ti line. In consequence, Nvidia rolled out a slightly cheaper model: 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.

Retrieved April 12, 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 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. This family is a derivative of the GeForce4 MX family, produced for the laptop market.
Nvidia attempted legal action against a version of Omega Drivers that included the Nvidia logo.
