Synnex Australia ups gaming offerings with Galax deal

31 Jul 2017

Synnex has signed a distribution deal with Galax to handle the vendor’s graphic card range in Australia.

The deal will see Synnex offering Galax’s flagship Hall of Fame, EXOC and GeForce graphics cards. The EXOC range includes the EXOC-White Gaming series with its ‘unique’ white design and RGB/LED lighting, which Galax says is proving popular for gamers in Australia.

Darren Tan, Synnex Australia product management and marketing director, says the partnership strengthens Synnex’s already strong gaming portfolio.

“This alignment offers complementary components to our system builders and will expand reach for the DIY market,” Tan says.

Yu Chen Liao, Synnex product director, says the booming eSport industry has opened up PC gaming to a wider audience.

“The graphics card market, as one of the key components of gaming PCs, has continued to show strong growth. “With Galax’s appointment, Synnex will be able to expand its gaming line-up to its resellers.”
