Nvidia extends GeForce 2 MX line

Variants to appeal to OEM market

Nvidia took the wraps off two remodelled versions of its GeForce 2 MX graphics accelerator yesterday.

The GeForce 2 MX 200 and MX 400 target specific memory types. So, while the original MX supported 64-bit SDRAM, 128-bit SDRAM and 64-bit DDR memory, the MX 200 supports only the former, while the MX 400 supports 128-bit SDRAM and double data rate memory.

By supporting specific memory types, Nvidia reduces the complexity of the parts and makes them cheaper. Why spend more on a full GeForce 2 MX when you only intend to connect it to 64-bit SDRAM? That makes the part less expensive for the OEM, more tailored to the system their building, and so they're more likely to buy from Nvidia.

The launch follows the release last month of two similar variants on Nvidia's GeForce 2 Go chip, the Go 100 and Go 200. ®
