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

WinFox Software Suite Continued

Change the display settings in one-click:

Don't like the look of WinFox? Go ahead... Change it.

WinFox also changes the layout of your display properties tab to provide the look and feel of their proprietary drivers, yet be utilizing the latest reference NVIDIA drivers:

The last extras. Not much content, but might be a welcome change from Solitaire for some. Heh.

Hardware Monitoring

And on to one of the unique aspects of this card:

The hardware monitoring feature plots a graph of temperature vs. time to display just how hot you were able to get the chip up to during your last test or gaming session. This shot was taken after three rounds of 3DMark2001. Leadtek designed the layout so that quite an amount of information could be displayed to the user - most notably the chip temperatures and fan speed. The voltage running to the GPU is also displayed and the slide bar on the lower left leads me to believe that sooner or later, users will be able to adjust the voltage going into the chip. However the sliders were protected at the time of testing.

Leadtek has also created a minature version of this screen with the intentions of it being constantly displayed in an "always-on-top" format in order to minimize screen real-estate while allowing the vitals to be monitored.

Note: At the time of writing up the review, I noticed that the Chip Edge Temp was malfunctioning. I can't explain the reason for this but it was working when I first received the card... Oops. ;)
