Leadtek WinFast ATA/66 Card

"Companies have been manufacturing Ultra ATA/66 hard drives for quite some time now."

Companies have been manufacturing Ultra ATA/66 hard drives for quite some time now. Currently, the majority of the mainboards in most people's computers don't support this feature. Built in ATA/66 support was a highly anticipated feature included only in the next-gen motherboards. This all changed when companies started making add-in cards that enabled the hard drive to take advantage of ATA/66 without having to buy a new motherboard. Since ATA/66 is the future, we wanted to see if it really does make a difference in performance. To find out if ATA/66 is more than just hype Leadtek has sent us their WinFast ATA/66 card for evaluation. This card is especially great for people who have motherboards that don't support ata/66 and hard disk drives that do. One major selling point for this card that leadtek is pushing is that the card supposedly has zero hardware conflict.
