RGB, for better or worse, shows no signs of slowing down as we enter a new generation of gaming, and even Congresspeople are getting in on the trend. While Razer loves its own RGB, it knows it’s not the only company in the flashy lights game. That’s why it released a new ARGB controller today, which you can plug into your PC to make all your internal RGB components compatible with Razer Synapse 3 software. The best part is that it even works with RGB products made from brands other than Razer...some of them, at least.

The Razer Chroma Addressable RGB Controller is an internal component with slots for six ARGB headers. It comes with SSD mounting points to make it easy to fit into your build, and connects to your system through Micro-USB, drawing power through DC. While these formats are commonly used for external components, the controller's cables include converters for connecting them to your chassis.

The controller works with Razer products, as well as components from Razer partners, including Enermax, Phanteks, SilverStone Technology, Teamgroup, LianLi, and ThermalTake.  

Accompanying Razer’s new ARGB controller is a suite of Chroma accessories, including a combination USB hub/DAC/headset stand (the $69.99 Razer Base Station V2 Chroma), a wireless charging pad (the $59.99 Razer Charging Pad Chroma), a mouse bungee (the $39.99 Razer Mouse Bungee V3 Chroma) and a wireless mouse charging dock (the $49.99 Razer Mouse Dock Chroma). All of these have customizable RGB, though the mouse charging dock only works with Razer wireless mice, like the Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro and  Razer Basilisk Ultimate.

Today’s new lineup of Chroma products is mostly an update on existing accessories, but the ARGB controller is a new addition to Razer’s repertoire and a nice nod to cross-company compatibility. You can snag all of these products now at Razer.com, with the ARGB controller coming in at $39.99.

    Very interested in the new Razer A-RGB Controller as my ASUS (P9X79 Deluxe) motherboard does not have A-RGB ( or even RGB ) headers. Any thoughts on the Razer A-RGB controller working with the A-RGB features on the RTX 3080 video cards ( ASUS ROG/STRIX or EVGA GeForce Ultra Gaming)?

    Just checked the USA Razer site... no sign of the A-RGB Controller (yet). Hopefully, the device will be added soon!

    So I found the Razer mouse bungee v3 with rgb. Its only on Razers website and it ships from China. I guess it was just released recently? I'm excited but $50 is a little expensive.
