Razer takes Chroma lighting further with development hardware

Razer wants to be much more than a brand of peripherals and products for Gaming, to become a lifestyle brand. For this reason, it has announced the launch of the Razer Chroma Hardware Developement Kit (HDK), a modular lighting system for gamers and enthusiasts that integrates with the brand’s Chroma ecosystem, offering greater precision when configuring colors and effects.

With the HDK, users can cut and bend the LED strips that the brand launches at the same time to be able to illuminate virtually any surface, or even an entire room if they want (technically it could be done). The LEDs are individually configurable and integrated with Razer Synapse 3, powered by Chroma technology, which unlocks a huge amount of configuration possibilities in terms of colors and effects across all connected devices.

The Razer Chroma HDK supports four channel outputs with a total of 64 RGB LEDs. The development kit includes two LED strips with 16 lights each, but the Lightpack Extension Kit (sold separately) comes with a couple of extra strips and extension cords.

The Chroma HDK will be available from the third quarter of this year in the online store of the brand, priced at 99.99 euros for the Chroma HDK and 34.99 euros for the Lightpack Extension Kit.

These are the characteristics as published by the manufacturer:

  • Razer Chroma HDK module with 4 lighting channels
  • Includes 2 LED strips
  • Install inside or outside your PC case
  • Works with Razer Synapse 3 and Chroma Studio
  • Razer Chroma SDK enabled Razer Chroma HDK with 4 channel lighting output
  • USB connection for data and power
  • DC output for additional power and brightness
  • Included Molex to DC power adapter for internal lighting case
  • Double sided adhesive tape for mounting
