Razer and Lenovo announced on Friday that they will be collaborating on a new line of gaming computers in 2016. The two companies will both be represented on special Razer Edition models of Lenovo’s Y series gaming PCs, giving Lenovo a chance to gain some additional credibility among the core gamer market.

There’s no word yet on specifications for the jointly developed systems, but Razer says that “[all] forthcoming Lenovo Razer Edition products will be co-branded and reflect the edgy Lenovo Y series look and feel with iconic Razer elements like customizable Chroma lighting effects.”

Razer also says that the two companies are working on more than just PCs and are gearing up to “double down efforts to fast track the development of new technologies, including gaming experience enhancements.” What is a gaming experience enhancement, you ask? I’m not sure, but presumably we’re going to see accessories as well as computers from this joint venture.

Razer and Lenovo will host a true unveiling at CES in January, but if you want to keep up with any news regarding the partnership in the meantime, you can register your interest on Razer’s website to sign up for a newsletter.
