Geforce 4 mx 4000

Hello,
my geforce 4 mx 4000 works well but does not play some modern games. i researched and found out it lacks a good pixel shader. most present games require pixek shader 2.0 at least to run. So i think Nvidia shud design a software renderer to help us or totally scrap the geforce 4 mx 4000 card.

  1. dud, the Geforce 4 is old, you have no support if you want modern games you need a new GPU and why should NV try and make a SW emulator to try to run GOU code on the cpu, it would be way to slow

    my guess is you don't need just a new card, you need a whole new system, as if it's anything from that era it would be too slow to run even with a top of the line GPU

    though post full system specs so we know what they are
  2. Yeah the pixel shader 2.0 is a hardware problem, a software solution isn't applicable. You can pay about 30 dollars and get a GPU with pixel shader 2.0.
  3. Your GeForce 4 is extremely outdated. It is a DirectX 8 video card, DirectX is currently up to 11.

    Oblivion was the first game to mark the demise of DirectX 8 back in November 2006 as it was the first game to exclude DirectX 8 support.
  4. the geforce 4000mx is a dx7 card, not even 8. its a recycled geforce 2. You must be playing some ancient games on that.

    Man, I must be getting tired....
  6. Thanks for d info.

    Alrite , i checked. Most modern graphics cards are made for PCI Express slots. Is there anyway a PCI Express card could work with an AGP slot, maybe with expansion slots?
    Also which are d best available AGP cards by Nvidia and ATI in terms of performance?

    U also asked for my system specs:-

    OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
    OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
    System Name DAVE-7
    System Manufacturer MTM

    System Type X86-based PC
    Processor x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 9 GenuineIntel ~3057 Mhz

  7. Buy a HD 4670 that has an AGP interface:

    They are kinda of expensive because of low production, but they are probably the fastest AGP cards you can buy new.
