Default Leadtek WinFast PX8500 GT THD Extreme Review

A Geforce 8500 GT equipped with 256Mb DDR3 memory chips, a copper heatsink with heat pipe and factory overclocked, can this Leadtek differentiate itself from the reference 8500 GT design? Let's find out.

DDR2
Rivatuner max'd out 690 only? 690/510 is what I could get out of it.

Rivatuner 2.05 setting allows up to 690, the card may go further. What did you use on the review for ocing?

3D01 26750
3D03 11496
3D05 6736
3D06 3304

Not bad at all; the fan has less noise than 7600GT. With HDTV @1080i, this is good enough for my HTPC setup & Vista when/if it gets better.
