OCZ Technology adds Hypersonic-PC to its portfolio

Since its restructuring in 2002, OCZ Technology has branched away from its core offerings of RAM and power supplies into peripherals like its Equalizer gaming mouse and cooling components like the OCZ Hydrojet as well.

DailyTech reported several months ago about the purchase of the high-quality power supply manufacturer PC Power & Cooling by OCZ, which bought more engineering talent to the OCZ team along with a well-established and respected brand name in the PC community.

Today OCZ will announce its acquisition of performance gaming PC system builder Hypersonic PC. This will give OCZ an instant foothold in the high-performance PC market by adding a boutique builder of laptop and desktop computers to its product line. It would be no stretch to expect Hypersonic-PC systems start to use OCZ components like RAM and power supplies exclusively.

Ryan Petersen, OCZ CEO says, “OCZ’s goal is to deliver the highest performing products to consumers whether that is with premium components or total solutions. We are delighted to welcome Hypersonic PC, a company and brand well known for their commitment to enthusiasts into the OCZ fold."

He added, "Together with the additional resources of OCZ Technology, Hypersonic-PC will be able to develop and infuse even more innovation and cutting edge designs and features into the brand’s leading-edge enthusiast and gaming desktop and mobile offering.”

OCZ and Hypersonic stress the new partnership will almost exclusively focus on high-end boutique notebooks and desktops; a niche previously filled by Dell's Alienware and HP's VoodooPC.

VoodooPC founder and HP global gaming CTO Rahul Sood gave DailyTech his candid opinion on the acquisition.  "I'm surprised, but not totally surprised.  The guys at Hypersonic are really cool, and they are very deserving of their success.  I respect them immensely and wish them well."
