In motion-video applications, the GeForce4 MX offered new functionality. This tactic didn’t work however, for two reasons. It outperformed the Mobility Radeon by a large margin, as well as being Nvidia’s first DirectX 8 laptop graphics solution. 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. 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 May 15,
