Lenovo and Razer have entered into a partnership that will see joint branding appear on future Lenovo Y-series gaming computers. We’re not entirely sure what this will means in terms of hardware and specifications, but the press release indicates that the machines will at least feature Razer’s Chroma technology.
At the moment, it looks like the Lenovo Razer Edition machines will start with a desktop tower; and are likely to expand to the Y-series gaming notebooks as well. Both companies are also in the works to ” jointly double down efforts to fast track the development of new technologies, including gaming experience enhancements.” Somehow we are inclined to believe that this means that Razer Edition devices will see a lot of Razer software and performance suites being pre-installed.
There is little else to be said about the partnership at the moment. Although the first official Lenovo Razer Edition machines are expected to make their debut at CES 2016. It’s not far off, and we’re curious to see just what could possibly come out of this deal. Mainly because the two companies have said that they “will also explore potential cross-selling opportunities in the near future.”
Razer has opened a registration of interest on its official site for those who want to keep in the loop about the possible new gaming rigs. Which could mean that the Lenovo built machines are closer to launch than we expect.
