The Magnificent Seven: GeForce3 Board Round-up

Leadtek WinFast GeForce3

Leadtek has beefed up its GeForce3 graphics board using features similar to Hercules' 3D Prophet III. These include a DVI connector for digital flat panels and a TV-out connector. The design is unusual in that Leadtek uses one single heat sink for graphics and RAM chips. This layout, however, causes the GeForce3 chip to heat up the RAM modules excessively.

The array of software included by the manufacturer is pretty scant - the package only contains 3Deep and Cult 3D. On the other hand, Leadtek has put some more effort in the drivers.
