G.Skill have shown off a slightly-different kind of RGB-enabled memory module at this year's Computex in Taiwan

The G.SKILL Trident Z RGB Royal will come in sizes up 4266Hz but G.Skill say they haven't finalized the exact SKUs on offer. Pricing also remains under discussion.

Locally, G.Skill say the Trident Z RGB Royal will be available through MSY, PC Case Gear, MWave, Megabuy, PLE, Scorptec and JW Computers in Q4 2018.

The company also showed off two new gaming keyboards: the KM660 and KM670. Both feature customizable RGB lighting and detachable USB Type-C cabling. The main difference between the two here is that the KM660 opts for a more compact form-factor by slicing off the number pad. It'll also be a little cheaper.

In Australia, the KM660 will be priced at $79 and the KM670 comes in at $99. In addition to RGB and Non-RGB versions of each, G.Skill will also offer Cherry MX Red, Blue and Brown variants for both keyboards.

A G.Skill spokesperson also told us that Silver switches were a possibility being internally-discussed.

Finally, the SV610 headset offers virtual surround sound, courtesy of dual 50mm drivers. It outs a detachable microphone and foldable design. It comes accompanied by the ST510, which features a not-dissimilar foldable design and matching set of 50mm drivers but goes in on a more traditional 2.0-channel stereo sound experience.

G.Skill say that Australian pricing for both headsets is still being finalised. Stay tuned.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
