HyperX introduced the world’s first DDR4 memory modules with RGB backlight and infrared light synchronization

HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the world’s largest independent storage manufacturer, has unveiled the industry’s first memory modules to feature RGB backlight synchronization using infrared-based technology – the HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB.


HyperX built in special infrared sensors into each memory module so that the user can customize their backlighting and create their own unique color combinations. New technology, which has already been applied for a patent, is powered directly from the motherboard and will provide a stylish RGB-lighting for the PC real gamers, fans of overclocking and computer assembling by your own hands.

Kristy Ernt, Head of Memory at HyperX.“For 15 years, our brand has been a leader in manufacturing and overclocking high-performance memory modules. And now we are pleased to bring to the market new unique memory modules with RGB backlight. Synchronizing HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB backlighting with infrared light is a brand new method that will help gamers and overclockers give their PCs a unique and distinctive look.”.

In addition to IR-synchronized RGB backlighting, the Predator DDR4 RGB memory supports other backlighting controls when connected to a compatible motherboard. HyperX is currently working with motherboard partners to test the HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB modules and make them compatible with ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion and MSI Mystic Light Sync. Additionally, case manufacturers including In-Win are also adding similar solutions to their products.

HyperX demonstrated a new LED backlight control system for its Predator DDR4 RGB modules at CES 2018, held in Las Vegas from January 8-11, 2018.


HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB memory modules will begin shipping in the second quarter of 2018. Detailed information on pricing, compatibility and contents of kits will be announced in the meanwhile.
