OCZ closes PC business

OCZ Technology has shut down its Hypersonic business unit. The business made high-end PCs for the US market but it has now disappeared from the shopfront that is the Internet.

The firm is to focus on solid-state drives, power supply units and memory. The system integration business "really did not fit into the spectrum of things," Alex Mei, OCZ's executive vice president and chief marketing officer, told Techgage.

OCZ has run Hypersonic for around three years, but it found itself competing with its own customers. There have been rumours of changes at OCZ for some time it seems it was just a question of what had to go. The firm also operates the PC Power & Cooling business.

Hypersonic no longer accepts orders on new systems, but OCZ will still cover all warranties and provide technical support.
