Leadtek A250 Ultra GF4 Ti4600 Review - Conclusion

Leadtek has been well known as a high quality video card manufacturer for some time now. But can they continue this reputation? Come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he takes a look at their Mega Video Card; the A250 Ultra GeForce4 Ti4600. It's time to separate the men from the boys!

Conclusion

 

Leadtek's latest offering into the extreme graphics line is one of great success. The card itself has only a few problems. One notably is that that card is very long, and if you have a motherboard with poorly placed memory or IDE connectors, you are going to have troubles. Most new boards however, do still fit this card in, even if a bit cramped.

 

Performance-wise, the card was superb. Its default speeds were enough to make me want to just run benchmarks and games on it all day to see those lovely FPS scores come up. Overclocking was nothing super, but then the Ti4600 is a chipset that is running extremely close to its actual limits. With an overclock of 317/689 you get a bit more power out of the card.

 

Price-wise, the card is well above most peoples budget. Coming in at over $800 AUD, that's a lot for one video card. Moreover, Ti4400 cards are reaching Ti4600 default speeds for $300+ dollars less than the GF4 Ti4600, making Ti4600 a rather expensive novelty.
