Foxconn Employees Threaten Mass Suicide @ Xbox 360 Plant
     Mon, Jan 16 2012 | 10:05P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
300 employees go to tallest tower in the Foxconn plant which makes Xbox 360's and threaten to commit suicide because company won't give a raise + tricks employees out of job... according to PCMag.com

"The mass suicide threat stemmed from an incident on Jan. 2, in which the workers asked for a raise and were told to either quit with compensation or keep their jobs and receive no pay increase, according to a report from WantChinaTines.com In response, the employees went to the top of a building at a Foxconn Technology Park and threatened to jump, according to the report. The mayor of the town eventually came and talked them out of it.

Suicide at Foxconn has been a serious problem in the past. At least 14 Foxconn workers in plants in the Chinese cities of Shenzen and Chengdu have taken their own lives since a string of worker suicides began in early 2010."

Apple to ship iPad 3 in March and iPad 4 in October
     Fri, Jan 06 2012 | 1:25P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Apple will ship the so-called "iPad 3" with a full HD display in March, featureing a QXGA (1,536x2,048 pixels) display and longer battery life. Digitimes reports Apple will take the advantage of the iPad 3 launch to slash the price of its iPad 2 to US$399.

The segment will heat up in the second quarter of 2012 as Google reportedly may launch a tablet PC in April, competing with Kindle Fire in the entry-level segment, noted the sources.

But a true battle for market share will arrive in the second half of the year when Apple ships its iPad 4 in October, about the time when Microsoft releases its Window 8

TweakTowns 2011 Holiday Shopping Guide
     Mon, Dec 19 2011 | 4:06P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like many of you, I`ve already started my 2012 X-MAS shopping. This year I was delegated three people to shop for. My wife is shopping for everyone else, but I`m taking care of the kids. The two oldest were very easy to shop for thanks to Toys-R-Us` Video Game sale; buy one at full price and get the second one half off. I have to admit that I don`t really like retail shopping and this year is no exception. After spending 45 minutes trying to get the 10 games I needed from behind glass, I had to wait another hour in line to pay for them. When I finally got there someone had stolen my Madden 2012! Black Friday has come and gone, but there are several deals still available. In some categories it`s possible to get an even better deal than what was offered by brick and mortar stores. Shopping online is nothing new and the tools for getting the best possible price make online shopping easier than ever. Last year we told you about Google`s shopping network that lets you search for the best prices in nearly every category. Pricewatch and TweakTown`s Shopping network built in association with PriceGrabber are also very good places to locate and purchase X-MAS presents."

Graphics Card Shipments Decline 15.2% from Q1
     Tue, Aug 23 2011 | 1:27P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry's research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia, announced estimated graphics Add-in Board (AIB) shipments and sales' market share for Q2'11. The AIB Report tracks graphics board which carry discrete graphics chips. They are used in desktop PCs, workstations and some other devices such as scientific instruments. They may be sold as after-market products directly to customers or they may be factory installed. In all cases, they represent the higher-end of the graphics industry as discrete chips rather than integrated processors.

 

Overall shipments of graphics AIBs for the quarter came in below the last quarter at 16.1 million units compared to 19.01 million for Q1'11.

 

The evolution of the graphics market has resulted in two major super-categories of graphics AIBs: those which carry Nvidia graphics chips and those which carry AMD chips. Nvidia GPU-based boards declined slightly by 0.1% from Q1, while AMD-based boards increased 0.1% for the same period. Sales of AIB products have been directly impacted by the rise of integrated CPUs from Intel and AMD, which have increasingly powerful graphics.

 

Shipments during the second quarter of 2011 behaved according to past years with regard to seasonality but were lower on a year-to-year comparison for the quarter. Q2'11 was down from the previous quarter by 15.2%, and the ten year average for the quarter is -11.2%.

 

Our forecast for the coming years has been modified since the last report, and is less aggressive on add-in boards (AIBs) due to the prolonged worldwide recession and the impact of embedded graphics on the low end.

 

The quarter in general

In terms of market share, market leader Nvidia lost share by 0.1% from Q1, 2011, while AMD's market share increased 0.1% for the same period. On a year-to-year basis AMD lost market share by 0.8% while Nvidia gained 1.1% of market share. Obviously, these are not huge moves in the market and Nvidia still leads in unit shipments.

Table 1: Market shares over time

 

 

Over 16 million AIBs shipped in Q2 2011. Nvidia was the leader in unit shipments for the quarter, elevated by double attach and GPU-compute/CUDA sales.

 

The AIB market is fueled at the high-end by the enthusiast gamer, small in volume (~3m a year) but high in dollars (average spend for an AIB ~$300). The AIB shipment volume comes from the Performance and Mainstream segments. GPU-compute is adding to sales on the high end. The Workstation Market is smaller in unit sales than the enthusiast segment but characterized by even higher average selling prices (ASPs) (average spend for an AIB ~$415).

 

For the year, the AIB market is expected to hit $13.8 billion, down 33% from 2010 due to a pull back by consumers and a gradual decline in ASP.

 

The JPR AIB report covers seven regions and reports on the value of AIB sales and units in those regions.

 

Pricing and Availability

The Q2'11 edition of Jon Peddie Research's AIB report is available now in both electronic and hard copy editions, and can be purchased for $995. Included with this report is an Excel workbook with the data used to create the charts, the charts themselves, and supplemental information.
