However, in light of a lackluster recent history coupled with rampant negativity associated with any PC-related market as of late, leading analyst firm Jon Peddie Research (JPR) is calling Q2'14 for the workstation market just that: a breakout quarter. Completing its compilation and analysis of market results for the second quarter,…
