Corsair announced today that they’ve acquired Origin PC to take the system builder to the next level. Working together these two behemoths will be mutually beneficial. Origin PC gives Corsair a channel to further distribute their ever expanding line of computer memory and peripherals. Corsair gives Origin PC a dedicated supply channel.
“With the gaming PC market continuing to expand as an increasing number of players make the jump from console to PC, we wanted to do more to reach customers in North America that prefer to buy, rather than build, their system,” said Andy Paul, Founder and CEO of CORSAIR. “With ORIGIN PC’s expertise in personalized custom gaming systems and CORSAIR’s strength in performance PC hardware and the iCUE software ecosystem, we’re excited to combine our efforts to create new world-class gaming experiences for PC gamers.”
“CORSAIR is a fantastic partner to help take ORIGIN PC forward, known for creating quality, high-performance products that fully align with ORIGIN PC,” said Kevin Wasielewski, CEO of ORIGIN PC. “With a complete range of enthusiast PC products, ORIGIN PC and CORSAIR are uniquely placed to create amazing new systems that make the experience of owning a personalized custom gaming PC better than ever.”
Now we wait and see if anything changes in either camp. Either way, it should be good news for everyone.
