This chip is presented by Leadtek WinFast A170DDR T 64MB, AGP videocard.
The beginning of April brought us the announcement of the new GeForce4 family. It included not only the top Ti 4400/4600 models, but also mainstream MX 420/440/460. The latter cards were not the pared-down GeForce4 Ti, but a kind of a hybrid of GeForce2 and GeForce4. The new MXes lost not only the the half of pixel pipelines (2 of 4), but also the pixel shaders block, 3-level anisotropy, and EMBM support. This "castration" resulted in a cheap chip to easily compete not only with previous GeForce2 products, but also with ATI RADEON 7500 cards. These cards still have the GeForce4 core, including the faster memory controller, thus they demonstrate higher speed than their analogs released a year and a half ago. The medium MX440 model succeeds in replacing GeForce2 Ti/Pro. Read more about it in our reviews:
Theoretical and analytical videocard reviews, containing functional analysis of NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti GPU: NVIDIA GeForce4 MX
These cards also compete with ATI RADEON 7500. I'd add that some companies decided to make such hybrids, thinking that MX460 isn't enough: MX440 chip and MX460 memory. SO this card is just such a hybrid.
On the 10th of August 2002 the latest drivers from NVIDIA are 29.90, 30.00, 30.82 for Windows XP.
Test results are in the summary diagrams.

And 6.* drivers are not compatible with the software for sound cards based on Yamaha processor, as well as with SoftXG100 software synthesizer. Start or Close Window buttons might be spoiled by some "garbage" in 2D mode. One solution is in the iXBT forum .
