Leadtek WinFast PX9500GT

Are you one of the many computer users that just can't justify spending $300 to $500 on a single video card? Or maybe you are looking for a solution for that Home Theater PC (HTPC)? Well today we're going to have a look at Leadtek's newest entry into the video card market: the WinFast PX9500 GT. This is by no means a top-of-the-line gaming card, and it was never meant to be. The 9500 GT claims to be an excellent solution for viewing HD video - we'll take a look at that today - as well as heat and power issues to see just how well this card fills the niche it was designed for.

Leadtek, like many other component level manufacturers, is headquartered overseas. Taiwan to be exact. The contacts they list on their website are in Taiwan, Japan, China, and Russia. They have been around for several years, starting out in 1986 building EGA BIOS and AT motherboards. They have been fairly strong in the market, expanding into video cards, TV tuners, webcams and video phones, USB drives, even GPS! The bottom line is that Leadtek is not going away, and I think we will continue to see more from them in the ever-expanding video card market.

And turn even this Dream into a Reality with Leadtek.

Gainward GeForce GT 240

Last October Nvidia released a brand new graphics card aimed at the budget market, the GeForce GT 220, and unlike the shady GTS 250 this was actually a new product that deserved to be part of the 200 series. Built using a last generation manufacturing process and given the codename GT216, you'd be forgiven to be unaware of all this, as the 40nm GeForce GT 220 turned out to be a dud.
In terms of performance we were disappointed to find the theoretical bandwidth of 25.3GB/s placed this card alongside the old GeForce 9500 GT. The GeForce GT 220 would in fact be much slower than the GeForce 9600 GT, which we felt was a bit of a joke.

Not everyone can afford a high-end graphics card, of course, so we welcomed the addition for the sake of competition. But this is where things got even more ridiculous. Nvidia decided to slap an $80 price tag on the card, even when the far superior Radeon HD 4670 from ATI had been retailing for less for quite some time.

Prices have dropped slightly since then, but our opinion on it hasn't changed much. We feel the GeForce GT 220 was a pointless release, and as a result we must remain skeptical about this new card from Nvidia. The GeForce GT 240 is said to be considerably more powerful than the GT 220, though in terms of performance it should still sit well below the GeForce 9800 GT.

In other words, it appears that the GeForce GT 240 is picking up where the GeForce 9600 GT left off. With the remaining 9600 GT stock priced just under $100, Nvidia's newest card will start life here. This seems like the right product to take on the Radeon HD 4670, as we expect it to provide a similar level of performance, while keeping power consumption in check, but again carrying the wrong price tag.
Needless to say our expectations for the GeForce GT 240 are underwhelming, but that's not to say we won't give it a fair go. We really hope the tweaked version from Gainward that we are reviewing today can surprise us, so let's move on to check it out in more detail.

How to keep your laptop cool?
Summer season is on its peak and we need to protect ourselves for this. For keeping our body temperature maintained we use many things and one of them is cooling fan otherwise our body will fall pray to disease.
Like this our computer also needs cooling otherwise it won’t work for long duration.

Normally computer is provided with few fans by the manufacturer. But these are not enough to cool the core for long. Even they get heat up after some time.

I think most of the people work on their mobile computers i.e. Laptops: D
This post will help them to reduce their laptops over heat up problem.

I searched for the external devices to reduce the heat. After observing these you would get the idea how these devices are :D

Intel® 186 Processors

Posted by The Great Trader at 8:24 AM 0 comments
Intel 186 Standard Processor Family

Intel 186 XL standard family is available in CHMOS, 8-bit external (188) and 16-bit external (186) versions, offering a wide variety of cost/performance alternatives for embedded designs. The 80C186/188XL is pin-for-pin compatible with the previous NMOS 80186/188 while adding an enhanced feature set and static operation. The high performance CHMOS process allows the 80C186/188XL to run at twice the clock rate of the previous NMOS 80186/188 while consuming less than one quarter the power. Significant functionality is included in this highly integrated product. The flexible peripheral set includes DMA, Timers, Interrupt Controller, Memory Refresh, Chip Selects, Power Save and a Direct Numerics Interface.

Features and benefits

16-bit static CPU (XL operating at 25 MHz) High Performance > 1 MIP
8086 instruction set Use PC for easy software development and debugging
1 Mbyte Addressing Large address space (for programs and data) Can also use bank switching for > 1 Mbytes
On-Chip Peripherals High integration enables low-cost and low chip count designs

Multiple Packaging options 68L (LCC, PLCC, PGA) and 80L (QFP, SQFP) Supports varied system requirements
CMOS inputs and outputs Improved noise margins
Direct numeric’s interface (80C187) Increased computing power

Intel 186 Enhanced Processor Family

Intel modularized the core architecture of the Intel® 186 in order to better provide expandable peripheral functionality. The 186 Ex family is based on an improved, static, 1 micron design. All of the enhanced products run at 25 MHz. In addition, the 80C186Ex/C188Ex processors have a common set of base peripherals beneficial to many embedded applications. The Ex processors all support a standard numeric interface, an interrupt control unit, a chip-select unit, a DRAM refresh control unit, a power management unit, and three 16-bit timer/counters.

The 186 Ex family was designed with a number of objectives, the most important being high integration, low power consumption and a small form factor. The first objective is met by offering different Ex family members with varied peripheral sets. The variety of peripheral combinations available allows a designer to choose a "best fit" for their application. The second objective, low power, is met by offering a fully static device that operates down to 2.9-3.0 volts. The final objective, small form factor, is addressed by the Shrink Quad Flat Pack (SQFP) package.

The idle mode allows the device to shut off the CPU clock, leaving all integrated peripherals active. Idle mode lowers processor current consumption by approximately 40 percent. Power down mode goes a step further, the clock input to the entire processor is disabled reducing device current consumption to transistor leakage (micro amps).

Low voltage operation offers numerous benefits to the system designer such as decreased power consumption, less heat generation and less noise. The 13 MHz versions of the 186 Ex processors are available in 3.3V versions which operate down to 2.9 volts. The 16 MHz versions as well operate at 3.3V down to 2.9 volts. The combination of power management functionality and optional low voltage operation make the 186 Ex family processors ideal for power sensitive applications.

The small form factor is a major benefit of the SQFP package. The small package allows high integration while using minimal area. Another benefit inherent in smaller packages is reduced noise. The device lead frame that carries signals from the die to the package pins is smaller in the SQFP than it is in packages like QFP or PLCC. The decreased lead frame size decreases noise amplitude on outputs. The decreased inductance resulting from the small package and the elimination of a device socket reduce output noise. Lastly, combining the SQFP package and integration of the 186 Ex processors with low voltage operation offers an ideal solution for portable, low power, battery operated applications.

Features and benefits

3 Stage Power Management Unit Efficient power consumption
3.0 Volt Versions Enables portable, battery powered designs
Watch Dog Timer (EC only) Ensures system integrity in hostile environments
Serial Channels (EB/EC only) Facilitates interprocessor communication and modem interface

• Optional 2.9 and 3.3 Volt operation with the 80L186EB/80L188EB
• Packaging Options: 84L (PLCC) and 80L (QFP, SQFP)
• PB free package

The 80C186EB takes the base set of peripherals of the Ex family and adds two integrated serial ports. The ports support both synchronous and asynchronous communications. The serial channels make inter-processor and display communications simple.

The EB also implements an enhanced chip-select unit and 2 multiplexed I/O ports. The enhanced chip-select unit offers 10 general chips selects, each with the ability to address up to 1 megabyte. This enhanced unit enables application to implement memory bank switching to expand the 80C186 one megabyte address space. The I/O ports allow the application to do basic functions such as scanning keypads for input. The ports can also be implemented to control system power consumption, disabling unneeded components.

The serial ports, I/O capabilities and enhanced chip-selects make the EB an excellent processor for portable data acquisition or communication applications. The power management modes and optional low voltage operation make the 80L186EB ideal for battery operated systems.


• 4 DMA and 2 Serial Channels
• Watch Dog timer
• 22 I/O pins
• Enhanced C186/C188 chip selects
• Power Management
• Optional 3.3 volt operation with the 80L186EC/80L188EC
• Standard peripheral set
• Packaging Options: 100L (PQFP), 100L (QFP) and 100L (SQFP)
• PB free package

The 80C186EC is the highest integration member of the 80C186Ex processor family. All of the functionality of the 80C186EB is included with the addition of a 32-bit watch dog timer, 4 DMA channels, two enhanced 82C59 compatible interrupt controllers, and an additional I/O port. Even with the increased integration, the 80C186EC processor consumes no more power than the 80C186EB.

The 80C186EC allows the serial ports to make DMA requests, avoiding the interrupt latency required to service serial interrupt. The increased data throughput allows rapid data acquisition and processing. The enhanced chip-select unit also offers the possibility of increased data storage capacity. The very high integration and low power consumption of the 80C186EC offer a simple solution for portable, low power applications focused on data acquisition and processing. Low voltage operation is also a significant benefit to extremely power-sensitive designs.
