Review: A great bang for a modest buck


Testbed

Motherboard: MSI P45D3 Platinum ( Provided by: MSI );
Processor: Intel Core 2 QX9770 Extreme edition na 3.6GHz ( Provided by: Intel );
Memory: Corsair Dominator 12800 7-7-7-24 ( Provided by: Corsair);
HDD: WD VelociRaptor 300G 10,000RPM ( Provided by: SmoothCreation );



Our tables feature results of GTX 260 55nm and HD 4870 1GB cards, which are colored the same for easier viewing. Leadtek runs only 26MHz faster than the reference GTX 260, but this has proven to be enough to snatch a win.


Futuremark Tests

Leadtek WinFast GTX 260 Extreme leaves a good impression in the first test, leaving the reference GTX 260 behind by 3%. This is still less than the overclock, which amounts to 4.5% on Leadtek’s card. The Radeon HD 4870 lags behind by about 20%.



Left 4 Dead

The HD 4870 1GB fares better than the GTX 260 at lower resolutions, which is even more evident in tests where antialiasing was off. However, when we pushed the resolution to 1920x1200, GTX 260 started showing its muscle. Leadtek beats the reference GTX 260 by a very small margin, whereas the 2560x1600 resolution sees the HD 4870 lose by 6%.

World in Conflict

Unlike the previous game results, World in Conflict sees the GTX 260 put on a much better show.

Regardless of the resolution, Leadtek's advantage over the reference GTX 260 doesn't go over 3%. Radeon HD 4870 1GB loses by 15-20%.
