OCZ acquires Hypersonic PC
In a statement issued Friday morning, OCZ Technology says it has acquired system-builder Hypersonic PC. Hypersonic specializes in custom-configured gaming and workstation computers, such as the Fusion or the Aviator; OCZ sells performance-enhancing components, mainly RAM expansions and power supplies. The purchase of Hypersonic means that OCZ will gain its first whole computers for sale, while guaranteeing an outlet for its parts, which will find their way into future Hypersonic systems. Hypersonic systems should now be available to a larger audience as well; the company previously restricted sales to US customers only, but OCZ says it can now sell systems worldwide.
