Leadtek A250LE Features
Kindly donated to us by Rectron in Australia, we are fortunate enough to have the Leadtek A250LE on hand for our roundup. Thanks guys.
Package and Contents
Leadtek's packaging for their entire GF4 range is pretty similar. Only the name on the front of the box changes to reflect the product inside. Coloring, dimensions and information are basically all the same (generic GF4 info, nothing spectacular about the card itself).
After unpacking the goods, you do get quite a bit from the Leadtek package. Four games are included as well as four applications and drivers. Card, very well documented manual, TV in and out board and cables for TV connection, but disappointingly no DVI to CRT converter.
Size-wise, the Leadtek A250LE is identical to the nVidia reference specifications to reduce PCB space. Memory modules are located front and back, Ti4200 GPU exactly where it should be and pins for heatsink replacement are perfectly positioned.
Cooling the GPU and Memory
One thing that Leadtek are good for is making sure their products are cooled well. The Leadtek Ti4600 was the most radically cooled 4600 card I have ever seen and this concept has continued with the 4200. An extremely large and heavy heatsink is added to the front of the card to keep the GPU and front memory modules cooled. On the back, a very large plate is used to keep the ram at the back cooled and does so very effectively. The Heatsink is a two piece unit that comes away very easily so we were able to get some pictures of the memory for you.
With the heatsinks removed we get a look at the memory modules. Rather than the normal 3.6 or 3.8ns modules used for the rest of the Ti4200 64MB cards, this one uses Hynic 4ns memory clocked at 500MHz. No wonder it needs a heatsink. While it is overclocked, it doesn't show any stability issues with this very good cooling effort by Leadtek.
Video System - Again its Phillips
Phillips must be making a bundle. Just about anyone who wants to have good quality TV for nVidia is using them today and Leadtek is no different.
