Razer Announces Chroma Hardware Dev Kit for August 3


  • Razer Announces Chroma Hardware Dev Kit for August 3

    Starting tomorrow August 3, fans and consumers of Razer hardware will be able to get their hands on the Razer Chroma Hardware Development Kit (HDK). This Chroma HDK will integrate with some new RGP LED strips that you can place pretty much anywhere.
    Users can shape and bend the LED strips to fit virtually any surface to light up an entire room, home or office for total game immersion. The individually controllable lights are integrated into Razer Synapse 3, and are powered by Razer Chroma™ technology, which unlocks customizable lighting features that can be synced across devices.

    The Razer Chroma HDK supports 4 channel output with a total capacity of 64 RGB LEDs. Included in the box are 2 LED strips that have 16 LED’s each and additionally, the Razer Lightpack Extension Kit (purchased separately) comes with a pair of LED strips and extension cables.

    Gamers can choose from 16.8 million colors and a variety of effects. Custom settings can be created using the all-new Chroma Studio on Razer Synapse 3 – the next generation device configurator tool that is currently in beta. Using Chroma Studio gamers will be able to synchronize lighting effects across devices and also have the ability for certain effects to be displayed continuously across peripherals based on their physical position relative to the other.

    The Razer Chroma HDK will retail for $79.99 (USD) while the Lightpack Extension Kit for the HDK will go for $28.99. More information will be up at the Chroma HDK site (presumably once it goes live tomorrow).

      I mean, the BlackWidow keyboard I won from them lasted a few years before key presses started to repeat on a few keys. That's not too bad... Sort of.
