Leadtek WinFast GeForce3 TDH - FrostyTech.com Leadtek WinFast GeForce3 TDH
Wed Feb 20, 2002 | 8:36P| PermaLink
One thing I've noticed with nearly all of the GeForce 3 cards is the sheer weight of the heatsink + fan combos dominating them. As opposed to the rest of the GeForce 3 field where heatsinks and RAMsinks are separate, Leadtek have opted to combine the two into a single unit - typically this isn't a good thing - if heat from the core is transferred over onto the memory, overclocking can be limited. Leadtek aren't in the aesthetics market when it comes to hardware and so the PCB is bog-standard green - you can't have everything I suppose. A distinguishing feature of the card is the diagnostic LEDs present near the upper-right corner. The 3 LEDs here are used to show rudimentary status and diagnostic information. Basically it displays whether or not the card is working fine or if not, and whether its in AGP4X mode - using green, red and yellow LEDs respectively.
