HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston, today announced the first memory modules featuring synchronized RGB lighting with IR (infrared) technology, along with the HyperX Cloud Flight headset, HyperX Alloy Elite RGB mechanical keyboard and HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB mouse.
In the new HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB memory, HyperX has designed IR communication channels onto each memory module, allowing multiple modules to sync LED lighting. Powered directly from the motherboard, this technology provides an enhanced visual experience of RGB memory for gaming, overclocking PCs and DIY system builds.
In addition to IR synchronized RGB lighting control, the Predator DDR4 RGB modules also support multiple lighting profiles when plugged into motherboards with compatible RGB control software. HyperX is working with motherboard partners to test and qualify the HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB memory with their control software, including ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion and MSI Mystic Light Sync. In addition, chassis vendors like In-Win are also adding features to support RGB lighting and control.
The Predator RGB Memory is scheduled to ship in Q2.
