The GeForce3 has been hitting the streets in force lately, and our very own Jon "Albinus" Albiez wants to tell you all about the newest video monster from Leadtek. So fasten your seatbelts and get ready to take a ride on one of the fastest cards on the face of the earth!

Analysis

 

What can I say but WOW! The Leadtek GeForce3 TD blew my socks off completely! I was expecting impressive performance, and this card sure delivered it. It was obviously clear that nVidia has spent considerable time and effort improving the features and visual quality of the GeForce series, instead of simply boosting performance.

 

This product disappointed me in a way, by making my brand new 1GHz Pentium III look antiquated! Anyone who considers this card should ideally have at least a 1.2GHz AMD Athlon, or a 1.5GHz Pentium 4 to obtain the most from it. Pentium III and Celeron users need not apply, unless you intend to upgrade in the future. Otherwise you are simply not getting your money's worth out of the card.

 

Conclusion

 

Leadtek really has a winner with the GeForce3 TD. Combining multiple outputs, an awesome cooling system and excellent image quality, what could possibly be wrong? One word, PRICE. AU$950-$1000 is a lot of money; especially to spend on a graphics card. I don't believe that this will stop people from buying it though as the hardcore enthusiast/gamer will not be disappointed.

 

This card was rather difficult to rate, but here are the pros and cons:

 

Pros

 

 Fastest 3D Graphics card for the PC...has no equal!

 

 Impressive 2D and 3D image quality

 

 Excellent software bundle

 

 Cool looking HSF design

 

Cons

 

 Very expensive

 

 Runs quite warm (well ventilated case a must)

 

 Need ├╝ber powerful system to achieve full potential

 

 Distributor wants it back

 

Rating - 8.5/10
