We are looking for a professional YouTuber for video content

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: TweakTown | Posted: Sep 2, 2015 4:40 pm

Not only are we looking for US-based news reporters, but we are on the lookout for a US-based video professional, too. TweakTown is wanting to step into the world of video content in a big way, so we need a professional video guy or girl, too.




The candidate would need extensive experience in video content, with previous bodies of work as an example before applying. Preferably, we are looking for someone who is already in the industry who might work for a smaller site or company (or even on your own) and wants to join the big leagues, but you don't need to be intimidated by this. You might do kick ass work and just haven't been noticed yet, so this is your chance!


We would need someone based in the US who is willing to travel to trade shows and expos around the world, including CES in Vegas, E3 in LA, Computex in Taipei, and more. We are looking for someone who has considerable experience in YouTube, Vessel, and more - and has no issues dealing with deadlines. There's no super amount of technology expertise required, but this would be an advantage.


Previous experience is preferred, especially when it comes to trade shows and product reviews or unboxings of products. As we said, this isn't required, but it will go in your favor. This is a paid position, as we are looking for someone to grow into our team for the long term. We aren't looking for someone for a 3-6 month period or temporary, but someone who wants to build a future with TweakTown.


If you want to apply, send an email with your name, details, links to your work and why you think you'll be great for the job to and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

TweakTown is expanding! We are on the lookout for a US-based news reporter that will join our team. The job is pretty straight forward and easy, and it's a ton of fun, too.




The candidate will of course need to be based in the United States, with the West Coast being preferred. The candidate would be required to have above average English and grammar skills, and a large interest in technology and games. Previous experience isn't required, but it is definitely favorable. You'll of course need Internet access, a computer of some sort to write on, and the time required (which varies depending on your typing speed, and how quickly you get used to writing news, hopefully for a living).


This is a paid position, where you'll start off on a trial for 1-2 weeks before joining our awesome news crew led by yours truly. We are looking for a serious candidate, so if you're working a full-time job, you'll have to think twice before applying. The candidate would also have to be excited about attending local technology and game trade shows, such as the Consumer Electronic Show in Vegas, E3 in LA, and more.


If you'd like to apply, send us an email with a few details about yourself to - include your name, previous experience, where you're based, and then a little on why you think you'd be perfect for the job. Please remember, we're looking for serious candidates, as this will turn into a full-time position. There's a large future for you here at TweakTown, yes you - so apply now!

NVIDIA secures 81% of the GPU market according to JPR

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: TweakTown | Posted: Sep 1, 2015 1:24 pm

According to the latest data from JPR, NVIDIA has pushed into owning 81.9% of the GPU AIB market. AMD on the other hand, dropped from 22% to just 18% this quarter, and when looking at the year-over-year data, AMD has dropped down from 38%.




JPR's report finds that total AIB shipments decreased this quarter, down to 9.4 million units. AMD's quarter-to-quarter total desktop AIB unit shipments decreased by a sharp 33.3%, while NVIDIA's dropped 12%. JPR also noted that the "demand for high-end PCs and associated hardware from the enthusiast and overclocking segments has bucked the downward trend and given AIB vendors a needed prospect to offset declining sales in the mainstream consumer space".
