Temperature Measurements

We monitor the SSD temperature during our test benchmarks stress tests with a high-stress workload. The peak stress temperature is listed below; we test as-is, which means if a heatsink is installed, we'll show the value based on that. 




Above the temperatures reported from the sensors, this is with only a thermal pad on. Below is a thermal image with the SSD writing at max perf in an m.2 slot between the GPU and the CPU, so it's not the most optimal regarding the temperatures.

HP FX900 1 TB NVMe Review
HP (rather associated with pre-built PCs) is not a new competitor in the market of SSDs. For example, Hilbert checked their SATA and NVMe models in 2020; those were not the first ones from that brand covered on guru3d. This time, it’s an FX900 model we’ve received in a 1 TB variant. It’s manufactured with the assistance of BiWin and comes in 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities. It’s aimed at the gamers, according to HP, and it would be fair to place this drive between “entry” and “mid-tier” levels.

Killexams : Here’s how HP recycles its ink cartridges — and works on climate pledges

The reconciliation package moving through Congress includes $369 billion to fight climate change, and Senate Democrats’ summary of the deal says it would put the United States on a path to cut around 40% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

Much of corporate America has made climate pledges over the past few years as well. “Marketplace” host Kai Ryssdal recently went to Tennessee for a behind-the-scenes look at how HP, one of the world’s biggest computer and printer makers, is working to meet its sustainability targets. HP has a goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 across its value chain — that’s the supply chain from start to finish, including emissions from product use at home by the consumer.

Chief Sustainability Officer James McCall gave Ryssdal a tour of the HP ink cartridge recycling facility run by Sims Lifecycle Services in La Vergne, Tennessee. The 80,000-square-foot facility is one way HP is working toward another climate goal: circularity.

“The way that we think about it is anything that’s coming from a recycled source or a renewable source or getting a second life,” McCall said. “So these ink cartridges, what we want is to take this plastic and turn it back into the next device.”

The company has committed to reach 75% circularity for products and packaging by 2030.

Most HP ink cartridges are made with at least 50% recycled plastic. Ink cartridges are a substantial part of HP’s business, because consumers purchase them more regularly than printers and computers. HP has manufactured more than 5.4 billion ink cartridges through 2021.

“We process nearly 100,000 cartridges a day at this facility,” McCall said. HP ink cartridges of all sizes come to La Vergne from across the United States, Canada and Mexico after consumers return them via mail or by dropping them off at retailers like Staples or Walmart.

The 30 people who work at the facility sort the used cartridges, disassemble them and shred the plastic casings for use in future products. On the day of Ryssdal’s visit, the site manager estimated they were holding 4 million to 5 million ink cartridges.

The first step of recycling those millions of returned ink cartridges is sorting them on a conveyor belt. The system uses cameras and artificial intelligence to group the cartridges by size and shape to make them easier to disassemble.

“We’ve learned our way into this process,” McCall said. “Several years ago, HP had to kind of invent this as we went along. … Some of our first test models were taking an old washing machine and starting to put cartridges in it to see if we could clean them. We borrowed an old chicken processing line from Tyson and we figured out if we could use that for sorting processes. So, what you’re seeing now is the second and third generation of that.”

Once the cartridges are sorted, they head to the other side of the building for disassembly and plastic shredding. A machine scrapes the sticker off the top of the ink cartridges, removes the lids and takes out the foam and precious metals inside the cartridges. That leaves the hollow cartridge, which is shredded.

The average ink cartridge spends two to three months in La Vergne. Then, the finished product — the shredded plastic — is sent to another plant in Canada where it gets mixed with other recycled plastics and turned into pellets. The pellets are sent to HP’s manufacturing locations, including Malaysia and China, where they are used to make new ink cartridges that go to market.

According to HP, its sustainable impact efforts added $3.5 billion in new sales in fiscal year 2021, a three-fold increase over the prior year but still a fraction of the company’s $63.5 billion revenue.

“The scale of the challenge is there, but the opportunity is ahead of us,” McCall said. “As customers start to shift and make these choices, you’re also seeing industry change and customers change as we start to rethink this. That’s what it’s going to take — it’s going to take us rethinking the overall supply chain.”

Killexams : First Ride: Polaris’ New All-Electric UTV Delivers Serious—but Silent—Grunt

If you own a hobby farm, ranch or huge tract of hunting land somewhere, you need an off-road utility vehicle. Whether it’s hauling hay to the horses, checking fences or getting to your favorite fishing hole, these compact, go-anywhere four-wheel drive vehicles are a must-have tool for any property owner. And if you want a UTV that will let you tread lightly on your land, take a look at the battery-powered Polaris Ranger XP Kinetic.

The Polaris Ranger XP Kinetic is more than the current Ranger XP with a battery and electric motor replacing the gas engine and fuel tank. It has been reengineered specifically for electrification. “We didn’t just want to hop on the electric bandwagon,” says Chris Hurd, director of product planning for Polaris, “We wanted to produce the best Ranger we’ve ever built.”

The first thing you’ll notice when looking at the Ranger XP Kinetic is the lack of a grill. Because there’s no need for a radiator, designers restyled the front end to be a little cleaner and a lot more contemporary. There’s still a big bash plate up front, and the XP Kinetic comes with a winch as standard equipment. One of the other nice features on the front is accenting LED illumination that runs between the headlights and doubles as a state-of-charge indicator. When the UTV is plugged in, the light bar progressively fills as it charges.

The back features a tilting cargo box, measuring 3 feet x 4.5 feet and with a depth of 12.5 inches, that can hold up to 1,250 pounds of mulch, gravel or gear. The fully independent double A-arm suspension is a retuned version of that found on the gas-powered Ranger XP, with adjustments made to handle the extra 355 pounds and lower center of gravity resulting from the electric power-train configuration.

The Ranger XP Kinetic features two trim levels, Premium and Ultimate, the key difference being a larger battery in the latter (14.9 kWh versus 29.8 kWh). Regardless of which you choose, the permanent magnet AC electric motor delivers 110 hp and 140 ft lbs of torque, which Polaris claims is twice the grunt of any gas-powered utility on the market. That output allows for a towing capacity of up to 2,500 pounds with the two-inch hitch receiver.

Range on the Ultimate specification is estimated at 80 miles, which will vary depending on temperature and use. Accessories are powered by a separate 12 volt battery so there’s no loss of range when it’s sitting idle. In addition, there’s a pre-wired 110 volt, 15 amp outlet in the box to allow you to run equipment, a radio or other accessories in the field.

Behind the wheel is where the electric Ranger really differentiates itself from the rest of the Polaris lineup, which includes the General and RZR variants. Throw the long shift lever into high, stab the throttle and prepare to take off like a rocket. There’s a low-range gear, but in our test it wasn’t needed, even up the steepest hill we faced. We were able to crawl up at low speed, stop halfway and start again with excellent traction. Thanks to the lower center of gravity, the XP Kinetic corners confidently. We kept it in four-wheel drive for most of our run through fields, over rocks and on tight trails in the woods. Thanks to the 14-inch ground clearance, there was never a concern about bottoming out. Also of little concern are the elements, as the Ultimate trim includes weather-treated seats and the whole interior is water resistant—including the electronic panels—so you can just hose it out after a day in the dirt.

Yet the best part about the Ranger XP Kinetic isn’t the performance, it’s the silence. Being able to glide quietly between the trees, hear the birds and know that the vehicle isn’t pumping carbon into the air—all of that makes the experience even better. It’s something land-owners will really appreciate since they won’t have to worry about a noisy gas engine startling their horses or bothering their neighbors. You can also run it in your barn without having to worry about the exhaust fumes.

There’s a big technology upgrade on the Ranger XP Kinetic Ultimate as well. Polaris has developed a connected system called Ride Command Plus that enables you to sync data to your phone with an app in order to locate your Ranger, know how much charge it has, check on the vehicle health and share your rides with other users or friends on social media.

Polaris also has a partnership with the charging company Qmerit to help owners add a J1772 level-2 home charger which can refill the battery in three to five hours, depending on the model package. Available now, the 2023 Polaris Ranger XP Kinetic starts at $24,999 and $29,999 for the Premium and Ultimate versions, respectively.

Killexams : In monkeypox battle, asymptomatic cases hamper public health response

The state Department of Health has declared monkeypox an "imminent threat" to public health – activating state reimbursement opportunities for counties' response and prevention efforts – and some lawmakers are calling on the governor to declare a state of emergency to cut through the regulatory red tape that has stalled the public health response.

One obstacle is the limits of currently available monkeypox testing, which cannot confirm cases until lesions appear, making it difficult for public health officials to catch infections early and direct resources accordingly. 

Monkeypox is confirmed by swabbing skin boils that have already been scabbed over, something that happens several weeks after exposure. The samples are sent to a lab for analysis.

World health leaders say there is insufficient data on whether people may contract or shed the virus but never exhibit symptoms, though Belgian researchers say they have identified several such cases.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned that some patients present with very mild symptoms resembling a pimple or a rash with tiny bumps. 

"We have seen presentations of monkeypox that are mild and sometimes only in limited areas of the body, which differs from the classic presentations seen in endemic countries in West and Central Africa," CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said in a briefing last month. "This has prompted concern that some cases may go unrecognized or undiagnosed."

The DOH is just beginning to analyze wastewater samples for monkeypox, utilizing the state's Wastewater Surveillance Network, which was established in the last two years to monitor the spread of COVID-19, health officials said. (The department also used the network as a resource to screen for polio in light of the latest Rockland County case.)

A wastewater testing project in the San Francisco Bay Area that has monitored area sewer systems since June 19 found traces of the monkeypox virus in 10 of 11 sewer sources.

Experts hope that wastewater testing will help flag the presence of an infection in a community – and the number of people infected – days or weeks before symptoms appear. In the case of COVID-19, this early detection has enabled health agencies to direct resources to infection hotspots and alert residents to take precautions.

State health officials note that many people also exhibit pre-symptoms, like fever, fatigue or headache, which can be an early warning for individuals before a rash emerges.

"Prior to this outbreak, the thought with monkeypox was there were no 'asymptomatic' cases – everybody progressed to a rash," DOH spokesman Cort Ruddy said. "And, typically, monkeypox virus spread has been closely connected to contact with lesions."

The state had a total of 1,383 confirmed monkeypox cases as of July 29, accounting for more than a quarter of nearly 5,000 known infections nationwide, according to figures from the CDC and the state Department of Health.

About 94 New York cases are located outside New York City, including three in the Capital Region, in Columbia, Greene and Albany counties, respectively. 

The state Department of Health this week began releasing demographic data for confirmed monkeypox cases in counties outside New York City, figures that suggest that the disease is confined almost exclusively to adult men who have sex with men and that Hispanic communities are disproportionately affected. At least 35 percent of all people infected with monkeypox in upstate New York and downstate suburbs identify as Hispanic. 

In New York City, which releases its own demographic data, the racial distribution of cases is slightly more balanced between Black,  Hispanic, white and other races. At least three women and one person under age 19 in the city have confirmed monkeypox infections. 

Federal and state health officials are scrambling to boost vaccine and testing supplies to keep pace with the nationwide outbreak, which is currently surging highest in New York. The U.S. currently has the second-highest number of monkeypox cases in the world, trailing Spain.

The U.S. Federal Drug Administration announced Thursday it will release an additional 786,000 doses to jurisdictions, adding to the 300,000 that have already been distributed.

The FDA approved the two-dose Jynneos vaccine in 2019 for adults who are at high risk of exposure to monkeypox, which is caused by the same family of viruses as smallpox.

The Jynneos vaccine is made by the Danish biotech company Bavarian Nordic. The FDA has been criticized for delays in inspecting and signing off on a Danish manufacturing plant, which prevented doses from being distributed.

Killexams : Your Own Engineering Workstation, With Mame

There are some things that leave indelible impressions in your memory. One of those things, for me, was a technical presentation in 1980 I attended — by calling in a lot of favors — a presentation by HP at what is now the Stennis Space Center. I was a student and it took a few phone calls to wrangle an invite but I wound up in a state-of-the-art conference room with a bunch of NASA engineers watching HP tell us about all their latest and greatest. Not that I could afford any of it, mind you. What really caught my imagination that day was the HP9845C, a color graphics computer with a roughly $40,000 price tag. That was twice the average US salary for 1980. Now, of course, you have a much better computer — or, rather, you probably have several much better computers including your phone. But if you want to relive those days, you can actually recreate the HP9845C’s 1980-vintage graphics glory using, of all things, a game emulator.

The Machine

The HP9845C with a Colorful Soft Key Display

Keep in mind that the IBM PC was nearly two years away at this point and, even then, wouldn’t hold a candle to the HP9845C. Like many machines of its era, it ran BASIC natively — in fact, it used special microcode to run BASIC programs relatively quickly on its 16-bit 5.7 MHz CPU. The 560 x 455 pixel graphics system had its own CPU and you could max it out with a decadent 1.5 MB of RAM. (But not, alas, for $40,000 which got you — I think –128K or so.)

The widespread use of the computer mouse was still in the future, so the HP had that wonderful light pen. Mass storage was also no problem — there was a 217 kB tape drive and while earlier models had a second drive and a thermal printer optional, these were included in the color “C” model. Like HP calculators, you could slot in different ROMs for different purposes. There were other options such as a digitizer and even floppy discs.

The machines had a brief life, being superseded quickly by better computers. However, the computer managed to play a key role in making the 1983 movie Wargames and the predecessor, the HP9845B appeared on screen in Raise the Titanic.

According to the HP Museum, the 9845C wasn’t terribly reliable. The tape drives are generally victims of age after 40+ years, but the power supplies and memory also have their share of issues. Luckily, we are going to simulate our HP9845C, so we won’t have to deal with any of those problems.

One other cool feature of just about every HP computer from that era was the soft key system. These were typically built into the monitor or, sometimes, the keyboard and lined up with labels on the screen. So instead of remembering that F2 is the search command (or whatever), there would be a little label on the screen over the button that said “Search.” Great stuff!


When you think about simulating an old computer, you probably think of SimH. However, the HP machines were very graphical in nature, so the author of the HP9845C emulator made a different choice: MAME. You normally think of MAME as a video game emulator. However, if you want color graphics, ROM slots, and a light pen, MAME is a pretty good choice.

As you can see, you get a view of the 9845C monitor replete with soft keys and, if you enable it, even a light pen. You can load different images as ROMs and tapes. The only tricky part is the keyboard. The HP has a custom keyboard that works a bit different than a PC keyboard.

In particular, the HP computers were typically screen-oriented. So the Enter key was usually distinct from the key that told the computer you were ready for it to process. This leads to some interesting keyboard mappings.

Quick Start Guide

In fact, the page that has the most information about the emulator is a little hard to wade through, so this might help. First, you want to scroll down to the bottom and get the prebuilt emulators for Linux or Windows. You can build with MAME or use the stock versions — assuming your stock version has all the right options. But it is easier to just grab the prebuilt and they can coexist with other versions of MAME; even if you want to go a different route eventually, you probably should still start there.

The emulator is called 45c and, on Linux, I had to make it executable myself (chmod +x). Here is a typical command line:

./45c -magt1 tapes/demo1.hti -magt2 tapes/demo2.hti -ramsize 192k '-rom1 advprog' '-rom5 colorgfx' '-rom3 massd' '-rom4 strucprog' &

All of those tape and ROM files are in the distribution archive. You probably don’t need any of the ROMs, but I loaded them anyway. Add -window if you prefer not to run full screen. If you do that, you may also want to add -nounevenstretch and -nomax options to Boost appearance.

If you want to try the lightpen, use the -lightgun -lightgun_device_mouse option to turn your mouse into a lightpen. Note this will grab your mouse and you may need to use Alt+Tab or some other method to switch away from the emulator.

The keyboard mappings are listed on the web page but here are a few that are handy to know:

  • Enter – Continue
  • Right Shift+Enter – Store
  • Numeric Enter (or Right Shift+Enter) – Execute
  • Escape – Stop
  • Right Shift+Home – Clear screen

So faced with the prompt, you can enter something like:


Then press the numeric enter key to see the result. So this being a BASIC computer, you can enter:


Right? Well, yes, but then you need to press store (Right Shift+Enter)

If you have the tapes loaded as above (you can view the tape catalog with the CAT command), try this:

load "autost"
High tech graphics for 1980

Remember to use the numeric pad enter key after each line, not the normal enter key!

The king of the demos is the Space Shuttle graphic which was cutting edge in 1980. You could change various display and plot options using the soft keys.


Of course, the Space Shuttle is only fun for so long. There are many other demos on the same tape, but eventually you’ll want to play with something more interesting. The HP Museum has a good bit of software you can probably figure out how to load. You can’t get the software, but if you want to see what the state of gaming was on a $70,000 HP9845B in those days, [Terry Burlison] has some recollections and screen shots. You’ll also find tons of documents and other information on the main HP9845 site.

It would be really interesting if the emulator could drive an HP-IB card in the PC or a PI to drive all your old boat anchor test equipment. That might even let you connect a hard drive. Maybe.

Killexams : Best budget gaming PC 2022: top gaming desktops for less


PC gaming is still king, let's be honest. The PS5 and Xbox Series X/S are slowly becoming more available to consumers, but where else do you get the wealth of choice in games, the ability to freely upgrade your hardware, and the currently-raging Steam Summer Sale? Nowhere but on PC, that's where.

Still, even with GPU prices gradually beginning to stabilize, building or buying a good gaming PC can be an expensive process. If you'd prefer not to have to meddle around with cables and screwdrivers, buying a pre-built gaming system from a trusted manufacturer can be the way to go, and there are plenty of great options to choose from that won't break the bank.

With next-generation GPUs from Nvidia and AMD coming later this year (and Intel's long-awaited return to the GPU market), now might not be the best time to buy a high-end graphics card. That's good news for anyone looking to snap up a more affordable pre-built system, though, as GPU manufacturers are eager to clear out stock before the new cards arrive, driving down prices. Check out our favourite budget gaming PCs below!

Christian Guyton, Computing Editor

If you want to game on PC, you don't have to spend a fortune. With more GPUs and CPUs on the market than ever before, it's easy to get yourself a powerful budget gaming PC and be playing the latest PC release (or classics that never made it to console!) in no time at all.

Yes, you can still splurge on an ultra-powerful gaming PC if you've got cash to spare, but if your wallet is feeling a little tighter there are still plenty of lower-specced alternatives that will still be capable of running graphically-demanding titles without sacrificing framerates. As the cost of living skyrockets, anyone contemplating getting into PC gaming - or purchasing an upgrade for a dated gaming rig - will want to consider one of our top budget gaming PCs.
