DIY market may shrink further due to US-China trade tensions
     Fri, May 17 2019 | 3:19P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Digitimes reports: "Motherboard makers have experienced sluggish demand coming from the PC DIY market, which is likely to shrink further as the US-China trade dispute escalates, according to industry sources.

The PC DIY market has seen weak replacement demand, particularly in China, while shortages of Intel's entry-level to mid-range processors remain an issue.

With the cryptocurrency mining fad dissipating, most motherboard and graphics card players have seen their revenues returning to regular levels. But those who heavily rely on the two business segments have reported sharp drops in sales for the first quarter.

With the US government threatening to extend the 25% tariff to consumer products including notebooks and smartphones, Taiwan's motherboard and graphics card players noted that the impact on their businesses will not be big since they have already increased the prices for products shipping to the US previously when the US increased the tariff to 10%. They have also prepared production sites outside of China as a precaution.

As for China's 25% retaliatory tariff on US-imported products, the firms so far have not seen major impacts.

However, fierce trade tensions are expected to result in weakening demand from the end market. China is especially important as the popularity of the country's PC DIY market is far strong than that of the US.

For motherboards, nearly half of the worldwide shipments go to China and if demand continues falling, Taiwan suppliers' sales in 2019 are expected to be severely undermined.

At the moment, the China market accounts for big portions of the motherboard businesses of Asustek Computer and Gigabyte Technology, but the proportions are relatively low for Micro-Star International (MSI), ASRock and Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS).

MSI has reported consolidated revenues of NT$29.49 billion (US$939.26 million) for the first quarter of 2019, down 0.9% sequentially and 7.2% on year. The company achieved EPS of NT$1.55 for the quarter, weaker than NT$2.49 of the same quarter a year ago, but higher than fourth-quarter-2018's NT$0.80."

The Aerocool Tor aims to deliver a pretty cool feature set for the gaming enthusiast. With plenty of glass, as well as three RGB fans and a remote to control it all out of the box, we load the Tor up, turn it on, and light it up to figure out if it holds up or if Aerocool had to cut too many corners to offer it at such an attractive price.

Katana ZERO
     Fri, May 17 2019 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It seems like I have been inundated with data and scripts of one kind or another of late, so it is nice to return to reviewing a game. The game is Katana ZERO from Askiisoft and published by Devolver Digital. In it you play as a katana wielding swordsman with time manipulation capabilities who works as a hitman. Your missions will have you visiting a number of places to kill one target or everyone, but before long you learn there is a lot more going on in the city of New Mecca than some want you to know."

Posted by: STAFF
We’ve spent the last few months focusing on Nvidia’s GTX 16-series graphics cards – starting with the GTX 1660 Ti and working down to the more recent GTX 1650. Today, however, our attention turns back to the RTX family, and specifically the mid-range RTX 2060. The particular model in question is Gigabyte’s Gaming OC Pro 6G, which comes with a factory overclocked core, triple-fan cooler and RGB lighting. Is it worth the £360 asking price?

CORSAIR IRONCLAW RGB WIRELESS Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, May 16 2019 | 9:02A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The wireless feature addition to the IRONCLAW RGB series is nice to have, especially thanks to the SLIPSTREAM technology that allows very low latencies, so you will not see differences versus wired mode. The included 1000mAh rechargeable Li-Po battery allows usage up to 16 hours from a single charge on WiFi, with all RGB segments turned on; if we go in Power Saving mode, the LED lighting turns off, but we will benefit from much more usage time. The extra battery brings the weight up to 133 grams, which is still manageable and thanks to its large footprint people with larger hands will have no issues using with a comfortable palm grip. "
