  The Chaintech 7NJS Zenith & Leadtek K7NCR18D-Pro Motherboards Nvidia's Nforce2 Chipset pushes out Dual Channel DDR By, Tom Laverriere December 16, 2002 When we think of motherboard chipsets, NVIDIA isn't always the first that comes to mind.  In fact, NVIDIA earns its stripes from their line of graphics chipsets and for good reason.  I would say only the enthusiasts and OEMs among us know that NVIDIA makes a motherboard chipset known as the nForce.  The first iteration of the nForce, proved itself to be a solid chipset backed by a reputable name.  Although most would...

The Leadtek Winfast A250 Ultra TD The GeForce4 Ti Card With A Massive Heat Sink By -Dave Altavilla March 26 2002 We've been working with Leadtek hardware, here at HotHardware, since our beginning way back in late 1998.  At that point in time, Leadtek was known for designing and building top end graphics cards with various chipsets, including workstation "professional" level graphics.  Since that time, Leadtek has diversified its portfolio of product, with TV Tuners, Motherboards, EIDE/SCSI Controllers and even video conferencing technologies folding into the mix. However, what... Read more...

The Leadtek Winfast GeForce 2 MX DH Pro An MX With all the Goodies... By Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta December 21, 2000 As a hardware review site, we come across many products competing for the same space in a particular market. No where is this more evident than the video card market. nVidia has been, and now that there is one less competitor, surely will remain the most dominant supplier of video chipsets to OEMs. Many companies that sell products using chipsets from nVidia, simply take nVidia's reference design and churn out cards that are essentially exact replicas. This practice makes... Read more...
The Enhanced Leadtek Winfast GeForce GTS Chock full of good stuff... By, Jeff Bouton December 28, 2000 It seems like every time you turn around these days, a leading manufacturer releases yet another new video card on the market.  Ever since the release of nVidia?s line of GeForce/GeForce2 GPUs, the introduction of powerful display cards has become commonplace.  With this ?Boom? in the market, we?ve had the opportunity to see some really exciting products.  But it is also becoming increasingly difficult for the buyer to discern which card has the right balance between features and...

The Leadtek Winfast GeForce 2 MX Worth every cent...and then some... By Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta 10/10/00 nVidia has been on a roll as of late.  They are seemingly starting to dominate the performance gamer market with their powerful GeForce 2 GTS.  As if that wasn?t good enough, they will soon be releasing an ?Ultra? model that will further establish their position.  Being a dominant force in a single market segment isn?t enough for nVidia though.  Their design win with the Microsoft X-Box should establish nVidia as a major player in the console market.  They...

The Leadtek WinFast GeForce3 TD A Reference Design With Attitude... By, Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta June 27, 2001     Now that the GeForce 3 has been widely available for a few weeks, we find ourselves in the same situation we we've been in numerous times before, since the days of the Voodoo2. Manufacturers follow a standard reference design, mass produce it and market it under their recognized brand name. The advantage of this process is knowing you are getting a product based on a proven, tested design. The disadvantage is that differentiating one product from another becomes... Read more...
The Leadtek WinFast GeForce 3 Ti500 TD... Yes, There is a Video Card Under all that Metal! By, Marco Chiappetta November 15, 2001 Here we are again, in the same predicament we have found ourselves in many times before.  With the release of a "new" NVIDIA GPU, inevitably comes an onslaught of cards all based on a standard reference design.  The up side to this "situation" is that all of the cards based on the reference design have gone through a rigorous testing regimen to insure compatibility, stability and performance.  The down side is that it becomes increasingly...

The Leadtek Winfast GeForce2 GTS The next generation GeForce makes its HotHardware debut 5/5/00 By Dave "Davo" Altavilla   Options, that's what typifies the Graphics Card Market at this point in time.  I don't think I have ever seen a time when there were so many 3D Accelerators to choose from.  There are so many different OEM manufacturers with lots of compelling technology to lure you into that next upgrade purchase.  NVidia  has certainly been contributing their fair share of product to the equation with their tireless six month new product introduction cycle. ...

The Leadtek WinFast 3D S320 II 4/30/99   Leadtek was absolutely the first OEM to release a Graphics Accelerator based on the NVIDIA TNT2 chip. We received a full Retail Release 32MB SGRAM Supported Card. This is a highly anticipated product as we all know, so I won't bore you with a long monologue. Let's get right to it! As I stated, our card came equipped with 32MB of SGRAM, a type of Synchronous DRAM specifically designed for video & graphics. This memory is designed to handle the high bandwidth requirements of today's PC Graphics Accelerators. The card had TV Out but no Flat Panel Output... Read more...
