Leadtek WinFast GeForce3 TDH Review
By: Jonathan Martini - November 2, 2001

WinFox Software Suite

The included software is another aspect where manufacturers can differentiate themselves. Many manufacturers send out the reference NVIDIA Detonator drivers, whereas Leadtek, Asus, and Hercules tend to modify the drivers to their own layout. They also tend to optimize them somewhat, but your mileage may vary.

In comes Leadtek's WinFox software suite, which can be launched by an easily accessible icon in the system tray.


Advanced Tools

The Advanced tools window contained a multitude of interesting applications:

Most notably Leadtek's incorporated overclocking application - Speed Runner:

As well as the often toyed with gamma settings:

And some unique apps that allow you to easily adjust your monitor settings:

or advise you to take a break from too much review writing (not my case ;)

as well as a thorough redraw of the display.


Hot References

The HOT References contained some useful links, but I don't think one would spend much time toying around once everything is properly set.

Shortcut to Display Properties...


PCI-bus Info. Normally, one would have to install a tweaking app such as Powerstrip to play with some bus settings.

The memory resouce manager display some interesting info about various memory uses.

The DirectX Diagnostics Tool which allows one to view all DirectX related information about various hardware such as the display adapter, sound card and joysticks.


An incorporated tool to replace WCPUID?

I'm assuming it allows monitoring of the backup battery power for those with a powered UPS back-up system.
