GeForce2 Go for notebooks
nVidia presented the first graphics card for notebooks from its own company at Comdex 2000. The GeForce2 Go is based on the GeForce2 chip and offers the same features as its desktop brother the GeForce2 MX.
The first drivers for the chip are already available for download from nVidia. The chip runs with a clock frequency of 142MHz, creates a computing power of 17 million triangles and a filling rate of 286 million pixels per second. The graphics card should have between 8 and 32 MB RAM. An HD video processor is integrated in the Geforce2 Go and the card supports DVD decoding. The slightly higher power consumption of the GeForce2 Go should be put into perspective by the decrease in the processing power of the processor, since the geometry unit of the GeForce2 Go relieves it of a lot of computing work, which, however, seems rather unrealistic overall. Toshiba will use the GeForce2 Go in its Satellite range. The first notebooks equipped with the GeForce2 Go can be expected from the beginning of next year.
