Corsair partnered with Taiwanense electronics-maker Primax to make its new Capellix tech, which shrinks the LEDs from 2.8mm³ to 0.2mm³, a whopping 92% decrease from the standard Surface Mount Device (SMD) modules. This not only allows Corsair to jam even more LEDs on a PCB for brighter hues, but lowers power consumption by up to 40% and provides 35% longer lifespan.

This tremendously reduced footprint will give Corsair more flexibility when infusing RGB into its fleet of hardware, including devices like mice, keyboards and headsets where space can be cramped. Capellix will debut with Corsair's new Dominator Platinum RGB RAM in February 2019.
