G.Skill adds even more chromatic splendor to Ripjaws RGB keyboards

G.Skill's new firmware update for Ripjaws RGB mechanical keyboards adds galaxies of scintillating prismatic flair to your fingertips.


With the new SW0.104/FW57 firmware update, G.Skill has unlocked a massive new range of per-key color customization options to KM780 and KM780R Ripjaws RGB mechanical keyboards. Armed with the new update, users can fully personalize their keyboard's glowing hues with the full palette of 16.8 million different color combinations, and even save their creations to profiles and share them with friends.

The Reactive and Ripple RGB lighting effects can also be assigned custom backlighting on a per-key basis, offering even more style to your keyboard. The board's top row of special function keys also get a makeover; users can now assign individual and personalized color combinations to macro and media keys.


If you like brighter colors, G.Skill has bumped the max luminosity up to 5 for even more brilliant hues. G.Skill promises future updates to its Ripjaws KM780/KM780R keyboards and peripherals, and the new firmware patch adds in a bunch of small touches to specific lighting effects to enable "smoother color transitions."
