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. This caused problems for notebook manufacturers, especially with regards to battery life. 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 consequence, Nvidia rolled out a slightly cheaper model: Despite its name, the short-lived Go is not part of this lineup, gsforce was instead derived from the Ti line. There was the Go, Go, and Go.
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. GeForce 2 4 MX. In practice its mx440-8d 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.
