This chip is presented by MSI GF4MX460 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 MX cards 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. While the idea of MX440 was clear, the idea of MX460 was hardly explainable. But now junior Ti 4200 will press MX460, so its price is to drop below $120, and users will be able to get a solution faster than Ti200, though lacking some of its functions. But the wave of GeForce4 Ti washed away GeForce3 from the market, and GeForce4 MX haven't become any cheaper, risking to lose the demand after new releases from ATI and SIS.

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.
