Leadtek is known worldwide for its excellent graphics cards, which are considered excellent filters and good overclocking capabilities, but alongside video cards, the company's line of products also includes products such as motherboards, TV and sound cards, and SCSI and IDE controllers.
The company's most advanced field, with the exception of video cards, is motherboards, but compared to other motherboard manufacturers, Leadtek's selection is quite pale because it includes only 11 boards, putting the company at the bottom of the scale, at least in terms of production.
Recently, the company entered the motherboard market more strongly and began, long before other and much better-known manufacturers, to produce motherboards based on the nForce 2 chipset, the latest chipset from nVIDIA.
The company's latest board, based on this chipset has the intricate name K7NCR18D PRO; The board contains the high-quality audio chip of nVIDIA and supports DDR 400 (it does not contain a built-in video card), which according to the review published yesterday on the tbreak website, shows lower performance than those of DDR 333…
In addition to DDR 400's performance, the review also deals with board performance, which surprisingly supersedes the performance of MSI's rival board.
One of the disadvantages of this board lies in its overclocking options - the BIOS allows changing the bass, locking the AGP speed, increasing the voltage to the processor, etc. But it lacks (quite strangely) options such as multiplying the memory, increasing the voltage to the memory and even locking the PCI speed.
It is possible that in the final version of the board these possibilities (and more) will be present, but in the meantime, their shortage is, as noted, a serious disadvantage for the Overclocks.
