Well, we all knew that NVIDIA had a big launch of their newest chipset family known as the GeForce4 just days ago. While those of us in Singapore were more caught up in the upcoming festivities (Chinese New Year), we were pleasantly surprised when something landed in our lab just before we decided to take off for the holidays. So, who made it first into our lab? Well, it was none other than Leadtek again. Leadtek is probably the first to deliver the GeForce4 MX 440 into the market with the new WinFast A170 DDR T.

The package comes in an attractive Leadtek-style design which comes with just the card, two game software bundles and a couple of cables for its TV-out function.
