VIVO CASE-V10G
     Wed, Apr 25 2018 | 12:45P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The fit and finish are on the same level that I saw with the V07 and V08. The front fans are quiet and with the top and bottom of the case being non-vented, the air only has one path straight through the case - front to back. This seems to get the job of cooling done even without a rear exhaust fan. You can add one if you like, but you probably don't need to. The blue LED fans provide a cool lighting effect, too. Several years ago, a $50 case would not have been worth of showing off, but the VIVO CASE-V10G brings good looks and value to the table. The V10G proves that a budget case can still deliver on features and quality. The V10G will also keep money in your wallet to put towards other components.”

aiwan graphic card makers to see shipments plunge 40% in April
     Wed, Apr 25 2018 | 12:36P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Reports Digitimes: "

Taiwan-based graphics card makers including Gigabyte Technology, Micro-Star International (MSI) and TUL are expected to see their shipments for April plunge over 40% on month, as many clients have suspended taking shipments in response to drastic slowdown in demand for cryptocurrency mining machines, according to industry sources.

Channel distributors and larger mining farm operators have cut orders with makers of mining graphics cards and mining motherboards or asked them to suspend shipments due to the crypto mining craze waning abruptly from the beginning of April, the sources said.

Quite a few mining farm operators have even stopped purchasing graphic cards, as they are awaiting the rollout of Ethereum mining machines by China's Bitmain in the third quarter of 2018. They anticipate mining rewards to pick up gradually in the third quarter, as Bitcoin and Ethereum values may rebound following sharp declines seen in early 2018, the sources indicated.

In line with the shipment drops, gross margins for graphics card makers are expected to fall sharply to 20-25% from a high of 50% enjoyed earlier as makers and channel distributors are forced to slash prices for sales promotion. They hope the market demand can rebound in May or June.

Most Taiwan makers of graphic cards saw their shipments, revenues or EPS hit new highs in 2017 and the first quarter of 2018, bolstered by raging crypto mining mania.

Gigabyte posted record shipments of 4.5 million graphic cards in 2017, up one million on year, with profits from the shipments doubling to over NT$2 billion (US$67.37 million). The company's first-quarter 2018 revenues also hit a new quarterly high of NT$20.1 billion, surging 29.9% on quarter and 51.38% on year.

MSI raked in record monthly revenues of NT$11.73 billion in March 2018, up 27.17% sequentially and 33.49% on year, helping to push up the firm's first-quarter revenues and profits to new highs.

TUL, dedicated to graphics card business, posted a record EPS of NT$9 in 2017, and also saw its revenues for March and first-quarter 2018 reach fresh highs."

EVGA Z10 Mechanical Keyboard Review: A Unique
     Wed, Apr 25 2018 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA is best known for its graphics cards, and for good reason. EVGA is the number one NVIDIA authorized board partner in the U.S. and they have been for a long time. Like many brands in the PC enthusiast space, however, EVGA has started to branch out beyond just graphics cards and today they have a wide range of items in their product stack, ranging from motherboards and notebooks to peripherals and power supplies. Despite being in the peripherals game for a relatively short while, however, EVGA already has five gaming mice in the market, and it just introduced its first mechanical keyboard, the Z10.
