ASUS & ROG Announce Aura Sync to Outshine the Competition

Article Tags:

ASUS & ROG are offering you a new generation of PC hardware, Aura Sync brings life and emotions to your PC components. And for the first time, you can synchronize them all - the way you want them to. Technically, if you only want a static lighting effect, you could get components from anybody offering RGB lighting and make everything the same color. However, if you want more effects, true customization, synchronization, and one software to control it all, the choice is simple. If you don't want different lights flashing everywhere in a hypnotic fashion (if that is what you're looking for, it won't be a problem), the choice is simple.
