    News out of Computex is that a whole ton of partners have signed on to provide Chroma platform integration/support. Q4 is the window provided for when we'll start to see third-party Chroma integration.

    Here's the list:
    - AMD
    - MSI
    - Thermaltake
    - LianLi
    - Vertagear
    - Ducky
    - NZXT

    If we can sync up case fans, coolers and more with Chroma, we might finally be within spitting distance of one comprehensive platform to control RGB. Which is great, because the whole thing is still a hot mess, and it's essentially impossible to get *all* RGB components and peripherals syncing together in a system currently.

    If we can get a RAM manufacturer on-board, the full spectrum of components (pun intended) will be finally sync-able from a single app!

    Sure, but you have to use their proprietary software. And Corsair doesn't make GPUs. And they won't interface with any other company's addressable system.

    That's why this is kind of a big deal - unlike the RGB solutions from peripherals makers (Corsair, NZXT, etc.) and the mobo makers (Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, etc.), this platform is how open to *any* third-party to integrate.

    Imagine not being constrained in your components selection based on what RGB ecosystems they play nice with? Pick whichever mobo, RAM, GPU, fans, etc. etc. you want!
