The Nvidia GoForce was a line of chipsets that was used mainly in handheld devices such as PDAs and mobile phones. It has been replaced by the Nvidia Tegra series of SoCs.


GoForce 2150[edit]

Featuring 1.3-megapixel camera support, JPEG support, and 2D acceleration. Supports 3-megapixel images with the upgrade.

GoForce 3000/GoForce 4000[edit]

The GoForce 4000 supports 3.0-megapixel camera and MPEG-4/H.263 codec, whilst GoForce 3000 is a low-cost version of the GoForce 4000 with limited features.

GoForce 4500[edit]

Features 3D graphics support with a geometry processor and programmable pixel shaders, used in the Gizmondo device.

GoForce 4800[edit]

Supports 3.0-megapixel camera and a 3D graphics engine.

GoForce 5500[edit]

The GoForce 5500 is a multimedia processor, incorporates Tensilica Xtensa HiFi 2 Audio Engine[1] (based on the Xtensa LX processor licensed in 2005[2][3][4][5]). It can decode video and audio formats, such as WMV, WMA, MP3, MP4, MPEG, JPEG and supports H.264. Also including a 24-bit 64-voice sound processor with supports up to 32 MB of external memory, 10-megapixel camera support, and 3D graphics engine version 2.

GoForce 5300[edit]

Equipped with 2.25 MiB embedded DRAM (eDRAM) on TSMC's 65 nm process,[6] being the first in the GoForce product line. Its multimedia technology is claimed to be similar to the 5500's, but it does not sport a 3D engine and only supports much smaller screens.

GoForce 6100[edit]

The latest chipset in the series, the GoForce 6100, claiming the first applications processor by NVIDIA,[6] adds 10-megapixel camera support and integrated 802.11b/g support (with external RF), based on a 130 nm process.[6] It contains a 250 MHz ARM1176JZ-S core.[7]
