This acquisition significantly advances JPR’s reach in expanding its global analysis, news and reporting capacity, and technology portfolio to address industry demand for accurate and timely electronic benchmarking.
“The acquisition of Babel TechReviews gives JPR a natural extension of its testing
and benchmark coverage and reach, and extends it into the XR realm, allowing us to chase pixels from conception to delivery,” said Dr. Jon Peddie, president of Jon Peddie Research. JPR provides consulting, research, and other specialized services to technology companies in various fields, including graphics development, multimedia for professional applications and consumer electronics, high-end computing, and Internet-access product development.
The highly successful Babel TechReviews was founded in 2014 and run by one of the most respected names in the industry, Mark Poppin. He and his team’s benchmarking experience and unique focus on XR used in gaming and computing will augment JPR’s industry coverage. Industry consumers and
insiders depend on Poppin’s insightful assessment of graphics boards, XR headsets and games, status, trends, and opportunities through the Babel TechReviews website, Reddit, and other social media sites.
