Thirdly, production of MX cards will be expensive because of 3. We used its beta version to check operability of the new processor. As for the MX , this is a good choice for those who don’t need a so modern support of pixel shaders, but who wants dualhead and VIVO. Especially it concerns those users who are going to get new cards for their old cases the power of which is often low. By the way, let’s pop into the boxes and see what’s inside: Being part of a newer generation of video cards one would except the Radeon to do some serious damage to the older Ti 8x, but this is not the case on our test system.

That is why you should carefully examine 3D performance scores, compare prices and account for the dualhead support. In the low resolution the gap between the contestants is greater on the more powerful platform. Test system and drivers Here we examine how the accelerator’s performance depends on a CPU frequency and on a platformthat is why we used two test stands: The tests were carried out in the 32bit mode. We examined today 4 production video cards based on the GeForce4 MX Test results The 2D quality is very high of all cards, and you can work comfortably at xx75 Hz and xx Hz.

We would like to thank Gainward for making this review possible.

Of course, we try to do our best to vainward this situation, but I can’t promise anything now. But first of all, take a look at the articles of already reviewed cards based on the GeForce4 MX.

Today we are going to take a look at 4 more cards on the GeForce4 MX which are also production models.
