RAM memory synchronized by infrared
We had RAM memories of the few components of the PC that almost got rid of the personalization with lights. Not many manufacturers dared with this option but they are getting more. HyperX, Kingston’s games division, has introduced a new HyperX DDR4 RGB predator memory in Las Vegas. The novelty of these modules is that they are the first to include infrared technology for synchronization between modules, so that their RGB lighting is enhanced.
These modules also support the configuration of their lighting through the control software that includes the motherboard, for which Kingston is working with manufacturers such as ASUS, GigaByte and MSI to make their systems AURA Sync, RGB Fision and Mystic Light compatible.
Mouse pad with wireless charging From Corsair
Both Logitech and Corsair are committed to a wireless gaming mouse that never lacks energy to function. If you decide on one of them, the ideal is to accompany it with one of the new mats to charge that peripheral wirelessly.

The king of co-connected lights, Philips Hue, already has a collaboration in the relevant gaming world: with Razer. Both companies have integrated the API and tools of Philips Hue Entertainment with the Razer Chroma lighting ecosystem. To achieve this, in addition to the latest updates of its Philips Hue and Razer Chroma softwares, the Philips Hue V2 bridge is required.

This monitor is a sneak that helps you when you play
The usual thing when talking about gaming monitors is to refer to their response time, panel refresh or even their appearance. However, the MSI MPG27CQ adds a new value: LED lights that help us when we play. They do so in the form of notices of how much time we have left to re-use a skill (cooldowns) in certain games or new messages in services such as Discord. These functions are configurable thanks to the Steelseries GameSense technology.
This monitor is curved, with WQHD resolution, response time of 1 ms and frequency of 144 Hz. It will be available with diagonal of 27 inches, but if price or launch date still decided.
ROG Aura Terminal and ROG Spotlight
ASUS does not give up in its effort to fill each of its colors and create the environment that they consider ideal to play. How about starting out feeling like a kind of Batman from the game? The ROG Spotlight is a light source device that projects the ROG logo with the colors that the system determines that are synchronized with the rest of the AURA luminance kit. It is magnetized to attach it to any metal surface and can rotate 360 degrees.
The ideal gamer room for ASUS is complemented by the new ROG Aura Terminal controller. This device the size of a PowerBank is responsible for creating a kind of Ambilight system for players. Connecting a strip of LEDs behind the monitor, up to 120 can control, the ROG Aura Terminal shows lights that are synchronized with the colors of the game at the edges of the screen, completing the ambience of the room where we are playing. These strips can also be placed in other places such as inside the PC case and in that case the synchronization would be with the AURA system that we had configured.
Game board and keyboard with 128-bit AES protection
Corsair does not want you to play unprotected or on a table. The combination of the K63 Wireless keyboard with the board of the same name offers the player two values not very common in the market. In the case of the keyboard, mechanical type, includes 128-bit AES encryption to prevent wireless interceptions of it.
This Corsair keyboard is also quite compact, which makes it easy to integrate into the K63 board, which includes a space for it, as well as a mouse area of considerable size and viscoeslastic foam for comfort when we place it on our legs. Together, the system offers 15 hours of autonomy. For now the price has not been announced.Tags: gadgets for gamers
