CES 2018 has kicked off and we are already starting to see some exciting announcements. Today, HyperX launched its new Predator DDR4 RGB Memory, which leverages IR technology to synchronize lighting across all channels.
This new HyperX Predator memory has IR communication channels embedded onto each memory module, allowing for the LEDs to remain in sync. You can check out how the modules look in the video below:
In addition to the IR synchronized RGB lighting control, these Predator DDR4 RGB modules support multiple profiles when plugged into motherboards with compatible RGB control software. This includes ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion and MSI Mystic Light. Aside from motherboards, case makers like In-Win are also adding new RGB lighting features built directly into the chassis.
We’ll have a chance to check this out on the CES show floor later this week. Other launches we can expect to see include the HyperX Cloud Flight, which we reviewed earlier this week. The HyperX Alloy Elite RGB Keyboard and HyperX Pulsefire Surge gaming mouse will also be there to check out.
KitGuru Says: Kingston’s new HyperX Predator RGB RAM will begin shipping out in Q2 this year. I’ve been using the Trident Z RGB kit myself for a little while and I must admit, it helps make the build look a lot better all around. It’ll be nice to see the HyperX modules up close and personal in order to compare- the additional support for Asus, Gigabyte and MSI lighting systems also makes it a more versatile option.
