Notebooks get GF4-level chips

NVIDIA launches GeForce4 4200 Go

NVIDIA has announced its GeForce4 4200 Go mobile graphics chip, which is expected to start appearing in actual notebooks sometime in early 2003 (look to Dell amongst others for this). The 4200 ushers in DX8 effects support, which is now commonly used in games applications, and gives NVIDIA-powered notebooks a much needed graphical performance boost to compete with ATI's recently launched Radeon Mobility 9000. The 4200 apparently gives NVIDIA-powered notebooks performance comparable to midrange GeForce4 products using AGP8x, although it's very easy to make claims like this in the absence of actual product, isn't it boys?
