Major news in the world of PC hardware as Corsair have announced they have acquired popular customized gaming computer company Origin PC.

Andy Paul, Founder and CEO of Corsair, said in the press release:

“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. 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.”

This acquisition will see the companies collaborate with each other such as Origin PCs integrating Corsair’s iCUE software ecosystem.

It’s unknown the dollar amount of the acquisition and it’s also unknown how this will effect popular streamers such as Swifty who have sponsorships deals with Origin PC and rival peripheral company Razer.
