Corsair Readies Dominator Platinum RGB Memory with Capellix LED Technology

Capellix is an innovation new RGB LED design by Corsair, which has significantly reduced size, power-draw, while offering increased brightness and durability, compared to conventional SMD LEDs. You can read all about these in our older article. The first product to implement Capellix is Corsair's upcoming flagship memory series, the 2019 Dominator Platinum RGB. These modules each feature 12 individually addressable Capellix aRGB LEDs, which take up significantly lower PCB real-estate than SMD LEDs on older generations of Corsair memory modules.

A silicone diffuser puts out light from these diodes through slits along the sides and top of the modules. The LEDs are fully compatible with Corsair iCUE software, in addition to pretty much any addressable-RGB software. The modules themselves feature hand-binned DRAM chips, cooled by die-cast, micro-arc oxidized anodized aluminium heatspreaders. The first of these could be out in February 2019.

Soon we can play Crysis on these LEDs, when they reach at least 640*480 resolution of course

I just want to know when it became acceptable to charge a premium for LEDs.

Imagine seeing this in other tech manufacturing:
DVD Player $20
RGB DVD Player $70
