Between capability and competenceTech Report, April 29, This caused problems for notebook manufacturers, especially with regards to battery life.

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.

One possible solution to the lack of geeforce support for the Go family is the third party Omega Drivers. This tactic didn’t work however, for two reasons. Despite harsh criticism by gaming enthusiasts, the GeForce4 MX was a market success. One step forward, two steps back?
