It's been almost three months since we first brought you the review of NVIDIA's newest chipset, the
Leadtek has been a dependable company based in Taiwan that manufactures graphics cards, LAN cards, modems, motherboards, and videoconference systems. We've come to expect a solid board from them as well as slightly more expensive designs and/or components for their slightly higher pricing. They do however try keeping the philosophy of shipping a high performance, feature rich board and not worrying too much about what software to bundle. Another interesting note is that Leadtek is known for a strong customer support. If you haven't noticed, Leadtek continues to sell 3DLabs graphics cards (called the "L series") although 3DLabs currently is selling direct. How can they do this? Certain large OEMs prefer the board layout and technical support provided by Leadtek. I'm not saying that 3DLabs isn't a competent company but rather that Leadtek must offer some damn good work if OEMs are willing to dish out a few extra dollars on a large scale to have Leadtek's product over 3DLabs.
