The card The Medusa GeForce4 Ti P’s curious numbering convention feels a little disingenuous, but there’s a method to Albatron’s madness, sort of. It’s nice to see that Albatron have used a good amount of thermal paste between their GPU and core – hey, it’s the little things that count! This family is a derivative of the GeForce4 MX family, produced for the laptop market. However, because the GPU was not designed for the mobile space, it had thermal output similar to the desktop part. The recent addition of 8XAGP breathes new life into the GeForce4 core, not really in terms of performance, but in terms of the ever lasting marketing battle between manufacturers.

Retrieved June 14, Kepler GeForce The memory was not going to be out done by the good GPU overclock and with no additional cooling was able to hit MHz. Because the memory is based on cooler running BGA form factor, Albatron didn’t feel they needed to add RAMsinks to help keep the memory cool.

When ATI launched its Radeon Pro in Septemberit performed about the same as the MX, but had crucial advantages with better single-texturing performance and proper support of DirectX 8 shaders. 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. In consequence, Nvidia albatfon out a slightly cheaper model: Comparison of Nvidia graphics processing units.

In fact, I think they’ve pretty much thrown the reference design out the window. Since they use silicon based compound this really won’t hurt the card.


Nvidia attempted legal action against a version of Omega Drivers that included the Nvidia logo. 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 solutions did not have this at all, and the nForce 2’s multi-monitor support was much inferior to what the MX series offered.

There was the Go, Go, and Go. Fortunately, initial concerns about motherboard clearance for GeForce4 Ti sized AGP cards seem to have been all but alleviated. The GPU showed no problems so we kept going.

All three families were announced in early ; members within each family yi4600 differentiated by core and memory clock speeds.


It outperformed the Mobility Radeon by a large margin, as well as being Nvidia’s first DirectX 8 laptop graphics solution. Comparison of the Geforce 4 based cards offered by Albatron.

Though albateon 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.

Despite harsh criticism by gaming enthusiasts, the GeForce4 MX was a market success. The two new models were the MXX, which was clocked slightly faster than the original MX, and the MXSE, which had a alvatron memory bus, and was intended as a replacement of sorts for the MX Ouch, it’s like a paper cut Not great, but it’s a new high for us.

Perhaps the metal cover helps keep vibration down?
