NVIDIA GEFORCE MX 4000

The GeForce MX 4000 graphics processing unit (GPU) brings a new level of graphics performance and flexibility to the mainstream desktop PC. By incorporating NVIDIA's innovative nView display technology, highly efficient Lightspeed Memory Architecture (LMA) II, and advanced Accuview antialiasing techniques, the GeForce MX 4000 GPU is the most feature-rich, cost-effective, and highly integrated GPU available for the mainstream market.

Accuview Antialiasing The Accuview Antialiasing subsystem with advanced multisampling hardware delivers full-scene antialiased quality at performance levels never before seen.

Lightspeed Memory Architecture II LMA II boosts effective memory bandwidth by up to 300%. Radical new technologies—including Z-occlusion culling, fast Z-clear, and auto pre-charge—effectively multiply the memory bandwidth to ensure fluid frame rates for the latest 3D and 2D games and applications.

Unified Driver Architecture (UDA) Guarantees forward and backward compatibility with software drivers. Simplifies upgrading to a new NVIDIA product because all NVIDIA products work with the same driver software.

8x AGP Provides double the bandwidth of AGP 4X—2.1GB/sec. vs. 1.1BG/sec. AGP 8x enables more complex models and detailed textures, creating richer and more lifelike environments. Uninterrupted data flow allows for smoother video streaming and faster, more seamless gameplay.

Highest Quality and Highest Performance Microsoft Windows XP Support Fully accelerates Windows XP multimedia and user interfaces, making it the ideal Windows XP graphics solution.

Video Processing Engine (VPE) Integrated high-definition Video Engine delivers the highest quality DVD, video, and display output in the market today. Integrated hardware MPEG2 decoder reduces CPU utilization for DVD playback to provide a longer viewing experience. Integrated TV Encoder Supporting 1024x768 Resolution Provides best-in-class TV-out functionality.

Lossless Z-Compression LMA II contains a lossless form of Z-compression that delivers a 4:1 benefit. Compression is a crucial technique in saving memory bandwidth for higher performance.

MX Memory Crossbar Dual memory controllers allow more efficient use of memory bandwidth.

Quad Cache LMA II contains a caching system for primitives, vertices, textures and pixels. These caches are individually dedicated and optimized for instant graphics pipeline access and reuse.
