Corsair acquires Origin PC

no, not the EA launcher

Today, July 24th 2019, Corsair announced that it has acquired PC builder Origin PC. The 1994 founded company has found a very high interest in the Miami based PC builder company and today the news broke officially.

Will Origin-PC still exist?

The answer is, yes! The Origin-PC brand will still be stay. So as far as Corsair’s acquisition goes, nothing changes much for us as the consumer yet.

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.

Origin PC just celebrated their tenth anniversary

Just recently Origin PC presented their all in one Big-O PC as a PR stunt for their 10th anniversary.. That PC actually holds all three major console platforms, and Xbox One X and PS4 Pro (water cooled and with expanded storage), a Nintendo Switch dock and an actual PC build as well.

The PC itself was using an Intel Core i9-9900K CPU. A NVIDIA TITAN RTX for graphics power. A 64GB CORSAIR Dominator Platinum RGB set with all 4 slots in use (so 4 x 16gb ram sticks). To finish it off, the PC also has a 2TB NVME SSD for the system install and a whooping 14 TB HDD drive. All with custom water cooling for all systems and a nice Elgato Capture 4k60 Pro to top the built off.

I’m kind of jealous. Having these major consoles being water cooled makes them so much quieter and more efficient, as the consoles don’t need to limit their power as much anymore compared to the air cooled version that basically everyone has in the living room (provided they have said console/s).
