LONDON, United Kingdom – Fnatic, a London-based eSports organization, has recently unveiled UK-based PC hardware provider PCSpecialist as the official supplier of their gaming hardware.
PCSpecialist is to act as Fnatic’s provider of state-of-the-art gaming gear. Aside from this, the partnership deal has spawned the Official Fnatic Gaming PC, available for purchase now in the UK and across Europe.
The PCs provided by PCSpecialist are going to be utilized in the training exercises of pro players from all Fnatic teams across all of the games they compete in.
This includes the teams that handle the CSGO, Rainbow 6, Fortnite, League of Legends, and FIFA eSports, among other games.
The CSGO team, for example, will be preparing for the Intel Extreme Masters (IEM), which is to be hosted in Katowice next month.
Updated equipment, says Fnatic, will allow the team to stay at the top of their game and make the most out of practice exercises.
PCSpecialist’s custom-designed PC for Fnatic is commercially priced at £1,599 (~$2000 US). The components included in the build are as follows.
The processor is an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, supported by an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT Graphics GPU.
As for storage, it is equipped with a 2TB Seagate Barracuda HDD with a 500GB Samsung 970 EVO PLUS M.2 NVMe SSD for quick loading of priority files.
As for RAM, the system is loaded with a single stick of 16GB Corsair VENGEANCE RGB Pro 3200MHz RAM.
The system runs Windows 10 Home as its OS, and will be available to buy online from PCSpecialist’s website, as well as stocked in most branches of Currys PC World.
In addition to the hardware deal, PCSpecialist and Fnatic will also be co-producing exclusive content along with Fnatic’s players, on Fnatic’s own social outlets.
This is in keeping with Fnatic’s announcement that they will be doing a rebranding in 2020, which started with a revamping of their logo.
Patrik Sättermon, chief gaming officer at Fnatic, said that PCSpecialist is the “perfect hardware partner” for the eSports organization, as they have an intimate understanding of what their players need in order to meet their training targets.
Thanks to the better tech platform provided by PCSpecialist, says Sättermon, Fnatic’s players will be able to perform better than ever before.
In addition to this, Sättermon also expressed his excitement at the release of the Official Fnatic Gaming PC across Europe, as well as the planned collaborative content with PCSpecialist.
PCSpecialist’s commercial manager John Medley said that gaming is an integral part of their company’s identity, and hence considers this partnership with one of the biggest eSports organizations in the world a major point of pride.
