When you think about gaming PC’s, the last company you’d consider for the job would be Lenovo. But following a brand new partnership with PC peripherals maker Razer, Lenovo is about to get pretty serious about gaming.
This past weekend at the Dreamhack Winter LAN party in Sweden, Lenovo unveiled the first of, what we presume, many gaming focused builds thanks to this new partnership; the Y series desktop towers.
The first Razer Edition Y series desktop tower from Lenovo looks pretty similar to the company’s Y series chasis, only this time its illumination and accent colours go from red to Razer’s signature green, not to mention a multichomatic light from the underneath of the device.
In addition to the Razer name, Lenovo plan to get much more out of this relationship as they’re planning to utilise Razer’s software expertise too, something which has resulted in things like Razer Comms, Synapse, and Cortex, a suite of tools for managing and optimising settings for games.
Lenovo’s Razer Edition PC series hopes to bring ease to budding PC gamers who don’t want to have to chase down every component with the added design and style any PC gamer hopes to get from their build. In addition, they’ll come with no extras either with a focus on performance and reliability.
The first official systems from the partnership will launch at CES 2016 in Las Vagas this coming January, which will be followed by a gradual expansion as the year progresses. It’s worth noting too that this isn’t an exclusive partnership and Razer isn’t planning on offering things it wouldn’t offer elsewhere, but this may be a big focus for the company for the time being.
