VGA Card Buyer's Guide 07/2003

Leadtek WinFast A340 TDH, Continued

The card's driver CD also includes Coloreal, a set of color calibration tools for monitors (Coloreal Visual, Coloreal Embedded, and Coloreal Bright). These are especially helpful in multi-monitor environments. Other software on the CD includes Colorific/ True Internet, Cult3D and the software DVD player WinFast DVD 3.1.

The games bundle consists of the very recently released games "Big Mutha Truckers" (03/2003) and "Gunmetal" (03/2003). While neither is a top game, they both offer a good deal of entertainment. The question of how well the second game will actually run on this card remains.

Conclusion: If this card's 3D performance is sufficient for your needs, then the A340 TDH offers a very attractive bundle. We especially liked the color calibration tools for monitors.
