e-GeForce4 MX 440 Review - Joe Glass
I finished posting Ben's review of eVGA's e-GeForce4 MX 440! In this review, Ben takes a look at gaming with the board and the performance with today's games. Check it out:

The GeForce4 MX is not based upon the same chip as the GeForce4 Titanium series. Based upon the same basic chip as the mobile NV17 part launched late last year, the numbering scheme would place the chip in between the GeForce2 Ultra (NV16) and the GeForce3 (NV20) rather than the GeForce3 and GeForce4 Titanium series (NV25). As we'll see in the feature description area, the 4 MX lies somewhere in between the GeForce2 and 3 in terms of features.
There's more where that came from here.

NVIDIA Partnership with KeyHole - Joe Glass
NVIDIA has a new press release today.

Strategic Partnership Delivers the Ultimate “Sky Cam” with EarthViewer 3D

SANTA CLARA, CA — APRIL 18, 2002 — Inviting consumers to view the digital world from their desktops, NVIDIA® Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) today announced that it has formed a strategic partnership, including an investment commitment, with Keyhole Corporation, a rich mapping software and service provider.  As a result of this agreement, NVIDIA will become the exclusive distribution partner for the consumer version of the EarthViewer 3D program, starting with an online promotion beginning next week at www.nvidia.com.  The two companies are also working together to integrate new capabilities in the EarthViewer 3D product, including optimized support for NVIDIA’s next-generation Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), for both the consumer and professional markets.  

Featured in today’s New York Times “Circuits” section, EarthViewer 3D transforms the way people receive and use geospatial information by delivering to PCs with an Internet broadband connection a three dimensional model of planet Earth.  EarthViewer 3D takes full advantage of NVIDIA’s graphics processing power to deliver a seamless stream of high-resolution satellite images, aerial photographs, maps, point of interest databases and other location-critical data.  EarthViewer 3D also allows users to pan, zoom and tilt the view of any location, from Mount Everest to the Grand Canyon, for the ultimate ‘birds eye’ view of the world.

“NVIDIA and Keyhole have partnered to deliver an excellent way for NVIDIA customers to explore the rich and expansive world of 3D,” stated Dan Vivoli, vice president of marketing at NVIDIA.  “By presenting a unique and educational way to explore the world, EarthViewer 3D combines all of the pieces needed to deliver an easily accessible, compelling 3D experience, and represents the future of 3D applications for mainstream audiences.”

From April 22 to May 5, NVIDIA will host a limited online promotion, giving 10,000 consumers up to a two-week trial of the EarthViewer 3D program.  In addition, those who download the trial version will have the chance to win a Toshiba notebook computer equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go GPU by participating in a global treasure hunt to find the NVIDIA logo hidden somewhere in the EarthViewer 3D world.  NVIDIA also plans to make EarthViewer 3D available to its OEM partners as an optional software bundle for its GeForce4 family of GPUs.

“Keyhole and NVIDIA share the same vision - 3D as a medium,” said John Hanke, CEO at Keyhole Corp.  “We are delighted to have NVIDIA as a partner in distributing this innovative application to millions of NVIDIA users.”

SimHQ's Geforce4 Ti4200 versus Hercules 8500LE comparison - Benjamin Sun
Bubba, the ex 3dfx PR man , has done a comparison with the Ti4200 and Hercules 8500LE , what's interesting is he didn't use Quake3 but simulation games. The Ti4200 won 61 out of 66 tests Click here for the comparison

On a related note, expect a comparison between the 8500 and Ti4200 soon from me with both FSAA and anisotropic filtering benchmarks ...

Anand's Under $200 Comparison - Benjamin Sun
Anand has a 9 card, under $200 videocard comparison up. The Ti4200 really cleans house in the comparison Click here to read the comparison. Some might question why he didn't include FSAA or anisotropic filtering results, but I'm not one of them. He ran almost 1000 benchmark runs and if he was to include FSAA and anisotropic filtering results it would have quickly gone over 10,000 runs easily

Nforce 420-D Selected By Hewlett Packard - Benjamin Sun
NVIDIA nForce Selected for HP Pavilion Desktop PCs
nForce 420-D Platform Processors Power HP Pavilion Desktop PCs

SANTA CLARA, CA - APRIL 15, 2002 - NVIDIA® Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) today
announced that the Company's nForce(tm) 420-D platform processors have been selected for use in Hewlett-Packard Company's HP Pavilion desktop
PCs-further proof that NVIDIA's nForce product family continues to be the PC platform of choice by leading OEMs and system builders worldwide due to its integration of innovative system, memory, networking, and audio technologies. According to NPD Techworld, a leading market research firm,
HP Pavilion has been the number one retail desktop PC brand nationwide for the last 12 months.

"nForce is the perfect platform for consumers who desire the most compelling digital media experience," said Jeff Fisher, executive vice president of sales at NVIDIA. "The level of integration that nForce provides, including
stunning 3D graphics, cinematic quality audio and superior networking connectivity, ensures users that their platform of choice will provide them
the best multimedia experience possible."

Designed and optimized to take advantage of AMD's latest CPUs, including the new Athlon XP processor 2100+, the nForce 420-D platform processors-the nForce Integrated Graphics Processor (IGP) and nForce Media and
Communications Processor (MCP)-integrate a myriad of innovative features, all of which reaffirm NVIDIA's technology leadership in the integrated
core-logic market. In addition to the award-winning GeForce(tm)2 Graphics Processing Unit, dual 64-bit memory controllers, and uniquely flexible architecture, the nForce 420-D platform processors also feature the industry's only integrated Audio Processing Unit (APU). Through its use of a multi-DSP engine, the NVIDIA-designed APU provides hardware processing for
up to 256 simultaneous voices and special effects, and consumes the smallest
amount of CPU overhead-when measured against all other add-in card PC audio
solutions available today. And, by using the high-speed HyperTransport bus
technology as the digital connection between the two platform processors,
NVIDIA's nForce architecture provides the HP Pavilion PC family with
substantially more bandwidth to allow for a truly media-rich, multi-tasking
environment, perfect for digital video editing, Internet audio streaming,
and photo manipulation.

"NVIDIA's nForce platform technology helps HP provide customers with a PC that is ideal for today's digital imaging, gaming and video editing
enthusiast," said Tom Markworth, product-marketing manager, HP North America
Consumer Computing Division. "As the worldwide leader in home PCs, HP continues to offer consumers the most choices for taking advantage of
today's media-rich applications."

Customizable HP Pavilion home desktop PCs featuring the NVIDIA nForce platform processors are available today direct from HP via
www.hpshopping.com or HP's retail kiosks. HP's first pre-configured retail PC models featuring the nForce platform processors, the HP Pavilion 541c and HP Pavilion 761n, are expected to be available on store shelves later this

PCs and motherboards featuring NVIDIA's nForce Platform Processors are also currently available from more than 100 system motherboard manufacturers, PC OEMs and system builders worldwide, including: Alienware, ASUStek, Compaq,
Falcon Northwest, Fujitsu-Siemens, MicronPC, MSI and more.
