Gartner: -6.9% Y-o-Y Decline for Q1 2017 EMEA PCs

EMEA PC shipments total 17.9 million units in Q1 2017, Gartner reports-- a -6.9% Y-o-Y decline, with all major regions making the territory suffering decline.

A single exception is Russia, since a stabilised local economy brought about to single-digit PC shipment growth.

On a global level, the Q1 2017 PC market also sees decline-- shipments are down by -2.4% Y-o-Y to 62.2m, the first time quarterly shipments are below 63m units since 2007. The market does see some "modest" growth from the business segment, but this is offset by declining consumer demand.

Apple Promises Mac Pro Update

Apple insists it has not forgotten about the Mac Pro-- SVP of global marketing Phil Schiller tells Daring Fireball a "completely rethought" Mac Pro is to launch some time next year.

As one might expect Schiller gives very little details as to what the next generation of Apple pro desktop PC will offer. He does promise it features a "modular system," since Apple reportedly feels "sorry" about the concept behind the Mac Pro.

"The current Mac Pro, as we’ve said a few times, was constrained thermally and it restricted our ability to upgrade it," Schiller says. "And for that, we’re sorry to disappoint customers who wanted that, and we’ve asked the team to go and re-architect and design something great for the future that those Mac Pro customers who want more expandability, more upgradability in the future."

In Win Intros tòu 2.0 Chassis

In Win updates the 2013 tòu PC chassis with the tòu 2.0-- a version featuring a sleeker angled design while retaining the same tempered glass with dual-mirror effect.

Like the original, the tòu 2.0 has a cool gimmick where ith looks opaque when powered down (or all internal LEDs are off), but becomes transparent once internal lighting is on. The name actually suggests such a name, since tòu refers to transparency in Mandarin Chinese.

Holding the thicker tempered glass panels (5mm, rather than 3mm) together is an aluminiuim alloy frame. The thumbscrews are hidden below the ventilation vents, and the front has a touch-sensitive panel for lighting control. A SIV-1065W illuminated power supply is included, and I/O options come through a quick-access USB 3.1 type-C on the bottom of the front panel plus x3 USB 3.0 ports, 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and microphone socket.

EVGA Preps Custom GTX 1080 Ti Cards

EVGA presents a trio of custom GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards, all featuring the company's iCX cooling technology to provide users with granular temperature monitoring and control.

According to the company, iCX involves the embedding of 9 thermal sensors into the card circuit board. The sensors pick up extra heat and direct the asynchronous fans to cool the card down accordingly. Users also get "interactive cooling" through a "thermal LED display system," allowing them to check the sensors in real time.

The SC Black Edition is the entry level option. It features a simplified dual-fan version of the iCX cooler without the thermal sensors, and offers overclocked core speeds of 1556MHz base and 1670MHz boost. Following it is the SC2, a card featuring the same dual-fan setup and overclocked speeds together with iCX sensors.
