Quake3 is mainly a test of overall system throughput with graphics cards of this class but we should still see some interesting scaling in the results. With games coming out more and more frequently that only run well on DX8 class accelerators without turning off features or dropping resolution, we have to say that the performance was disappointing. Soon we will publish the next review of other GeForce4 MX cards. Every time Leadtek releases a new product it surprises with new unusual cooler designs: Finally, Unreal Tournament represents the last of our tests.

I’ve been reviewing products since and started out at Gaming Nexus. The MX appeared first as a prime cost of such cards is even lower than that of GeForce2 Ti, and at the same time they are better in speed and sometimes in functions. NV17 is slower than NV20 yet in marketing terms, it’s being promoted as being ‘better’ simply due to the GPU brand name being 1 unit more than GeForce3. While their new products began to take shape, the NV17M started to look more and more appealing as silyro consumer chipset in normal AGP cards.

Besides, in our 3Digest you can get thorough information on performance of these cards on different platforms. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. I use the Valley of the Jaguar demo at the three test resolutions with the Quality graphics preference setting.


The complete characteristics of video cards of this and other classes can be found in our 3Digest. The overclocking results are not the obligatory characteristics of a video card. The card ships in a Retail package which includes: The cooler’s 440 is ordinary. The benchmark is run at x and failing to break 25fps, even when overclocked isn’t a showcase for the cards performance in games that use the DX8 shader functions.

This benchmark loads an accelerator with geometry, large textures and huge effects. This is a decent overall system benchmark with certain game tests placing emphasis on different parts of your system performance. It is positioned as a competitor against the GeForce3 Ti Overall, a good performer for the price but nothing special and not recommended. Here are the scores: We used the four.

Therefore any application of anti-aliasing would further decrease performance and while we haven’t looked at AA performance explicitly, don’t expect it to be of much use sadly. Traditionally, we start a new cycle of reviews of GeForce4 MX based video cards. Without the benefit of being able to run the Nature test, the score falls nearly points behind the stock clocked Ti That is why, when choosing a GeForce2 MX card look, first of all, at the memory it comes with.


While not made to handle future games Doom 3you can get some decent performance out of it. The GeForce4 MX is a more expensive solution, first of all, because of the memory 3.

All these techniques increase ahit effective memory bandwidth available to the GPU and allow for some extra speed that wouldn’t be there without the crossbar.

For the comparative analyses we used the following cards: Accuview is a multi-sampling implementation multiple copies of the frame buffer combined to form your output image of anti-aliasing. And they are cheaper than the GeForce2 Ti cards were in the beginning. So what’s under the hood? We don’t get anywhere near our 50fps target sadly.

We’ll see that in our benchmarks. Again however, for the price you’ll pay for one, the performance is quite good. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: The TV-out is realized without the help of an external video processor.
