Corsair Purchases Origin PC After Origin Builds Super Console-PC Hybrid

The title may not be exactly what happened, but the timeline adds up. Yesterday, Origin PC announced it has built one super all-in-one gaming system. Celebrating ten years of innovation, Origin PC updated its Big O to modern times. The original Big O housed the last generation of consoles along with a gaming PC inside of one case. This new one does the same, as it includes a PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X and a Nintendo Switch. “The amazing games and the incredibly beautiful, ridiculously powerful, and totally custom machines like the Big O keep me just as excited and passionate about gaming PCs today than I was 20 years ago when I started in this industry,” said Kevin Wasielewski, ORIGIN PC CEO and co-founder. “We are very proud to celebrate our 10-year anniversary with the launch of the Big O and to share our passion and creativity with the world.”

The actual computer components for the modern Big O feature a liquid-cooled Intel i9-9900k and a NVIDIA Titan RTX GPU. It also houses 64 GB of Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB Ram all on a MSI MEG Z390 GODLIKE motherboard. You can view pictures of the new Big O here. Unbox Therapy also showed off the unit in a video you can watch below. The consoles are not mounted as a whole inside the case, but rather the hardware. The consoles will all use the Titan RTX GPU and all share liquid cooling. The Switch can be docked and removed to make sure its functionality and purpose are still there.

Today, Corsair announced that it had purchased Origin PC. The peripheral and PC accessory company is clearly involved in the unveiling video of the Big O. Integrating the CORSAIR iCUE software ecosystem into ORIGIN PC’s systems will offer gamers system-wide lighting synchronization and performance monitoring, while the recently announced range of CORSAIR Hydro X Series custom cooling will soon be found in select ORIGIN PC systems. Further co-operation and integration of CORSAIR and ORIGIN products will be announced in the near future.

Origin PC will still remain a separate brand and continue to build PC’s for gamers. Corsair will just be the prevalent parts provider on these builds. Corsair will also continue its own line of custom built computers, as it is clear the acquisition looks to be more of a merger as both companies can share resources.
