Here are the results:. Without a high-end CPU backing it up, a high-end GPU will not be able to perform at its peak because the CPU can become the bottleneck, hindering the graphics processors performance. Revelation and the RTS game Spellforce. The main thing I want to look at is if the price premium that the GT demands is worth it. Source Video Stress Test.

Since its advanced graphics features include bump mapping, specular and diffuse lighting, shadows, and volumetric fog, Doom 3 can really test the might of any system.
Since the GT is significantly weaker than the GT in all of these areas, the MHz core clock frequency advantage that it has over the GT is what it really relies on to hold its own. Without a high-end CPU backing it up, a high-end GPU will not be able to perform at its peak because the CPU can become the bottleneck, hindering the graphics processors performance. The overclocking results that I experienced actually put this card at slightly faster clock speeds than the defaults for a Ultra, which are MHz and 1.
Nevertheless, I think it should be included, or Leadtek should make an offer for people to request one for free.
Revelation and the RTS pd6800 Spellforce. In the advanced graphics settings area of the game configuration screen, the lowest that anisotropic filtering can go is 1x, which means that at least 1xAF is enabled at all times.
Obviously, the GT should slap around the GT like a freshman in a locker room. First, I have included the usual comprehensive set of benchmarks below. For more than twice the price, you get double some of the specs but not double the performance. It features various complex lighting scenarios and large- and small-scale environments that really push current hardware to its limits. Leadtek provides an adapter for power supplies that do not include the relatively new 6-pin PCI Express power connector.
Nevertheless, it provides some idea of how the these boards will perform in this game. I ran a few of the benchmarks at high-detail settings again to see how much of an improvement these new clock speeds wonfast yield. Here are the results:. The timedemo feature does not really provide a realistic in-game performance number; I would compare it to a flyby type of benchmark.
Leadtek WinFast PX GT TDH (GeForce GT) –
And, in the conclusion section, I have a table that summarizes the performance gain from the GT to the GT in the standard benchmarks. It is simply a flyby technology demo for the Source engine, but it provides a easy way to gauge relative performance of video cards for games based on the Source engine, such as Half-Life 2.
Its extra large cooler offers a lot of value since you should be able to easily reach Ultra clock speeds and beyond. Considering the core was overclocked However, I was pleasantly surprised that the core and memory clocks were set to MHz and 1.
The main thing I want to look at is if the price premium that the GT demands is worth it.
It is not a secret that the target market for these boards is hardcore gamers and other such people for whom price is not a major concern. Pandora Tomorrowin this package, which adds more value to it at least for those people who do not already have them.
Leadtek equipped its GTs and Ultras with a rather large cooling unit. For those people, the PX GT is an awesome board. As you can see, most of the size comes from the main heatsink on the front of the card. Far Cry is a very popular game from Crytek, and just like Doom 3, it can test the might of nearly any system. Source Video Stress Test.
Also, the cooler performed well in its main duty — keeping the chips cool. All other detail settings where set to High for all timedemo runs. To help consumers see what they get for about twice the price, this review takes a look this GeForce GT card from Leadtek and compares it to a GeForce GT card. Doom 3 has a winfxst for being a power hungry PC game. The most notable exclusion from the package is an HDTV output cable.
I recently reviewed the Gigabyte GT, which is definitely a great mid-range card that many people would love to have.
