Microsoft testing native RGB controller in Win11


Recommended Posts

Quote

Screenshots show the feature includes a list of all supported RGB hardware, such as headsets, mice, and, in this case, Elgato's Stream Deck. Each device's lights can be customized by brightness, lighting effects, effect speed, and color. There's also a toggle for matching accessories' colors with Windows' accent color.

 

The list only consists of peripherals, so we don't know if Windows 11 will also allow owners to customize RGB lighting on hardware like motherboards, graphics cards, and RAM, but this functionality could be added before the final version arrives.

Twitter user Albacore (via The Verge) spotted new options for device lighting in the latest Windows 11 preview build...

 

 

... Neat I guess. ChatGTP and RGB.

Im surprised and yet not surprised all at the same time lol. RGB is a thing for sure, but a part of me never thought Microsoft would entertain it so far as incorporating it into the OS.

I'm surprised RGB is still a thing tbh, I thought it would have died off a few years ago. Personally, I wouldn't mind it if it didn't make hardware more expensive.

I don't mind RGB, as long as it does Cherenkov radiation blue 😃 

 

...the problem with current controller software (that by definition acts on low-level hardware) is security, the 'cost' in terms of CPU cycles, and also at times competing controller software. Microsoft Windows has become a big personal data snooping ops anyways, but at least with its new RGB software, one can eliminate various other 'leaks'.

...FYI for all the critics out there, usually, one can disable RGB 😉 

 

...then again, everybody knows RGB makes your PC run faster, just as racing stripes on your bicycle did
