Leadtek has announced two cards to fill its entry level DirectX 10 market, Leadtek PX8400 GS TDH and PX8500 GT TDH Extreme.
First one is the PX8400GS TDH based on Nvidia Geforce 8400GS GPU that works at reference 450MHz. Card feature 256MB of DDR2 that works at reference 400MHz (800 MHz). Shader clocks are not disclosed, but as everything is reference, we assume that Shaders are clocked at reference 900MHz. Card is a low profile design and cooled by a small fan. Features are same as any other 8400GS, DirectX 10, Shader Model 4.0.
Second one is a overclocked 8500GT GPU based card, PX8500 GT TDH Extreme. It comes with DDR3 memory, 16 per cent higher GPU clock, and as Leadtek's PR states 45 per cent higher performance. Leadtek's PX8500 GT GPU works at 520 MHz, and the card comes with either 256 or 128MB of DDR3 on 128 bit memory interface. Memory is clocked at 700MHz (1400 MHz). Card is cooled by "Leadtek’s almost noiseless fan design (less than 30dB)", some sort of Leadtek's heatpipe cooling. The card also comes bundled with Joint Task Force game.
