Corsair Announces Acquisition of ORIGIN PC

by Liana Ruppert

Corsair has been making some major power moves over the past several months with their most recent acquisition adding to their impressive network. As of today, Corsair has officially acquired ORIGIN PC, a huge addition to their umbrella of brands. The latest addition isn’t a huge surprise given that ORIGIN has previously implemented Corsair technology into their hardware, but it looks like they will be in a closer working relationship than ever before, though both companies have assured their community that both will continue to function separately. 

“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.”

With PC gaming continued to be in the main stage spotlight of the gaming community, an acquisition of this size is a huge deal. Though both companies will retain their autonomy, the level of support and care that goes into their future lines will benefit all, because both have more than proven their mettle in the PC gaming world. 

“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.”
