EK Introduces the The EK-Quantum Vector Strix RTX D-RGB Series Waterblocks

EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia based water cooling gear manufacturer, is introducing its new generation of EK-Vector RTX Strix D-RGB water blocks designed for ROG Strix GeForce RTX series graphics cards, based on Turing graphics processor. The EK-Quantum Vector Strix RTX D-RGB series water blocks feature four integrated addressable LED sources, two located in the terminal cover and one digital LED strip on each end of the water block.

EK-Quantum Vector Strix RTX D-RGB
The EK-Quantum Vector Strix RTX water blocks are specially designed for multiple ROG Strix GeForce RTX Turing based graphics cards. The water block itself uses the signature EK single slot slim look, and it covers the entire PCB length. This sophisticated cooling solution will transform your powerful ROG graphics card into a minimalistic, elegant piece of hardware with rich and addressable D-RGB LED lighting.
The water block comes in two different models for each of the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 and ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards. These water blocks directly cool the GPU, VRAM and the VRM (voltage regulation module) as cooling liquid is channeled directly over these critical areas.

EK-Quantum Vector Strix RTX D-RGB Upgrade Kits
These upgrade kits allow current owners of EK-Vector Strix RTX GPU water blocks to transform their 12V RGB blocks into the more advanced, addressable 5V D-RGB variant. They contain the stick out and terminal cover, as well as the I/O side, LED piece for full transformation of this advanced lighting solution. They come in both white and black versions for both the 2080 and 2080 Ti models.
Availability and Pricing
The EK-Quantum Vector Strix RTX series water blocks and upgrade kits are made in Slovenia, Europe and are available for purchase through the EK Webshop or EK Partner Reseller Network.

What about it?
What is it?

Diffused RGB?
Drugs & RGB?
Definitely-out-of-ideas-RGB?

I have a feeling they're all right.

Damn you're right about that. So its not complete BS then at least :) But then this is the same as ARGB (addressable) we saw awhile back right?
Asus first released Aura in 2016 - https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&geo=US&q=asus%20aura

Digital Surface Mount LEDs like this one: https://www.mouser.co.uk/ProductDetail/Inolux/IN-PI554FCH?qs=sGAEpiMZZMseGfSY3csMkdgyOOAg6kv2VViOjqi%252BKVeI8LD7%2FddjDw%3D%3D

Have been a thing since at least 2015 according to the revision history of this datasheet: https://www.mouser.co.uk/datasheet/2/180/IN-PI554FCH_v2.4-1665238.pdf

If anything, ARGB is the incorrect terminology.
