I'm not sure where the problem is here. The Geforce 4MX is aimed at a specific part of the market. It's not aimed at high end gamers. It would appear to be aimed at mid-end machines. It offers much better performance than the 2MX, whilst allowing system integrators to use the Geforce 4 name.

People who know exactly what they want already know they don't want this card.

People who want a mid-range card supplied with the new PC they're buying will probably think that this is a great card for their needs. It probably is a great card for their needs! It offers fine performance for today's games, which is what most people want. They're not looking for the absolute top-dollar performance, nor can they afford it.

Ignoring the Radeon, it seems to offer pretty much what the occasional game player wants. Hey, my girlfriend's still using a Voodoo 1 based 3D card because it offers her all she wants for the games she plays. There's no point upgrading at this point as it won't offer her anything new.

Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
