Introduction

nVidia is pretty much a household name for the hardware community. Ever since they released the very first 3D graphics card, called the Riva 128ZX, to take on Intel i740 and S3 Savage 3D, they have had nothing but success in the 3D market. TNT, TNT2, GeForce and GeForce 2 have been among the great 3D cards of all time, and right beside them have been many multimedia companies; but none more famous then Leadtek.

Leadtek was established in 1986. Since this time, they have been making computer products from motherboards to advanced 3D video cards for end users. What really put Leadtek on the map was its line of GeForce 2 cards with EliteMT memory that allowed for the most overclockable video card around. This won many praises out there in the hardware sector for having the most versatile and overclockable product ever. Since that time, Leadtek has focused on the enthusiast market which is where everything seems to be going these days. They have a rather impressive line-up with their graphics cards and are more than renowned for their overclocking.

nVidia recently introduced the latest addition to its video card line, the GeForce4. The GeForce4 family consists of three mainstream and three budget chips. The budget Chips are the MX420, MX440 and MX450. The mainstream are Ti4200, Ti4400 and the Ti4600, nVidia's flagship.

Thanks to Rectron in Australia, we have been given a sample of Leadtek's offering based on the Ti4600 GPU, the A250 Ultra.
