Gaming enthusiast Razer has launched the Razer Chroma Hardware Development Kit (HDK), a cutting-edge modular lighting solution for PC gamers and RGB lovers. The module delivers all-in-one colour customisation that allows users to precisely control every single LED. It will be made available globally in the third quarter.

Razer’s colour configurator supports 4-channel output with an overall capacity of 64 RGB LEDs. The package includes two LED strips that each has 16 LEDs. Gamers can shape and bend the LED strips, allowing them to fit practically any surface. The separately sold Lightpack Extension Kit includes a pair of strips and extension cables.

The individually modifiable lights are integrated into the California-based hardware maker’s device managing system, the Razer Synapse 3. They’re likewise powered by Chroma, which allows syncing and customising of lighting features across various devices. There are 16.8 million colours and a plethora of effects to choose from so gamers can go crazy with their individual setups as redundancy will never be an issue.

“Razer Chroma is the most advanced lighting configurator in the world, enjoyed by millions of gamers worldwide,” according to Razer co-founder and chief executive Min-Liang Tan. “The Chroma HDK allows us to take game immersion to the next level with PC cases, entertainment centres, appliances, and be used wherever else users desire.”

The Razer Chroma Hardware Development Kit should be available worldwide sometime in October. It will sell in North America for US$79.99, in Europe for €99.99 and in Australia for AU$119.95. The Lightpack Extension Kit, on the hand, will be available in North America for US$28.99, in Europe for €34.99 and in Australia for AU$47.95. The HDK should go well with the company’s colourful mug holder that comes with system requirements.
