IMG Notes from nVidia's GeForce4 Launch
11:39 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

On February 5th in San Francisco, nVidia formally introduced their GeForce4 family of graphics processing units, and IMG's Patrick Leyden was there.

In his report today, Leyden talks about the GeForce4 MX (known in development as the NV17) chipset, featured in Apple's new Power Mac G4 lineup, and the more powerful GeForce4 Ti (NV25) chipset, available soon from Apple as a build-to-order option.

Leyden also describes the launch event itself:

After seeing what the graphics giant was showing, Mac gamers have much to be excited about. Apple had a small but significant presence at the event. The company was not only featured in a demonstration area that spotlighted nVidia's OEM partners, President and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang took special note of Apple's achievement in being the first company to ship computers equipped with the GeForce4 MX. "The engineers at Apple were very fast at implementing the GPUs," Huang said. NVidia's president also praised Jon Rubinstein, Apple's Senior Vice President of Hardware Engineering, and his team for beating other vendors to market with the GeForce4 MX.
