We did have our share of concerns with the GeForce4 Go, namely when we would see the chip in market and how much power the chip required and heat it dissipated. There was no complaining about the chip’s performance. This 4X AGP solution features integrated video dsll for watching high quality, full frame rate DVD on your notebook or connected to your external display.

Like the heatsink, the fan that the D uses is bigger than the others we have seen.

We also suspected that we would see the GeForce4 Go in desktop replacement systems because of the amount of power the chip required and the amount of heat it produces. After running chkdsk to temporarily repair the errors that had been caused on the harddisk I found the dfll returned the escalated to the point the harddisk could not be found.

The Latitude D may be big but it is also very powerful. Rumor has it that this cooling solution was designed with the GeForce4 Go in mind, which turns out to be a safe bet on Dell’s part because it is unlikely that any future mobile delll will have higher thermal characteristics than etherjet GeForce4 Go.

Like all the notebooks in this roundup, a Pentium M processor is at the heart of the Dell Latitude D The north bridge of the chipset is found below the video module and the south bridge on the back of the motherboard. Dell Latitude D overview. ethegnet
