IDF Spring 2004: NVIDIA partners unveil their GeForce PCX solutions. First photos of GF PCX 5200/4300
Despite that PCI Express 16x is frankly speaking "not here", NVIDIA´s GeForce PCX announcement signalled to its partners to denote their presence in the new-generation market.
MSI unveiled four PCI-E product series under the Samurai PCX brand: Samurai PCX 5950, PCX 5750, PCX 5300, PCX 4300. All cards will support MSI Dynamic EXPRESS Overclocking and T.O.P. TEC COOLING.
ASUS is going to release five models, including XN5950, XN5750, XN5750N, XN5300, and XN4300. All cards will support Hyperdrive, GameFace, and ASUS VideoSecurity technologies.
Similar to MSI, Leadtek also introduced four new series: WinFast PX380 (GeForce PCX 5950), WinFast PX360 (GeForce PCX 5750), WinFast PX340 (GeForce PCX 5300), and WinFast PX180 (GeForce PCX 4300).
Prolink offered its PixelView GeForce PCX series, including GeForce PCX 5950, PCX 5750, PCX 5300, PCX 4300.
Of course, companies are not going to ship any of these novelties at the moment, as the market is just not ready as well as motherboard makers, and buyers. Still at the exhibition at IDF Spring 2004 companies showcased some of their novelties. According to our Alexander Vorobyev who made these photos, cards are demonstrated in machines on the new Grantsdale chipsets. As a rule companis showcase reference design on GeForce PCX 5300:
Besides, we made a photo of a low-profile PCI Express card on GeForce PCX 4300 (also MX4000, NV18).
As you can see, everything´s rather simple: finned GPU and PCI Express bridge heatsinks, S-Video and DVI. We suppose such solutions will start hitting the shelves in OEM variants closer to May 2004 and, with time, will replace GeForce MX4000 AGP 8X products.
