TAIPEI, TAIWAN, MAY 29, 2021 - HYTE, the PC components, peripherals, and lifestyle brand of iBUYPOWER, today, announced the expansion of its software, Nexus, with a series of Powered by Nexus components using a new Nexus Link interface. Additionally, HYTE will also introduce a new powered by Nexus qRGB keyboard, Keeb TKL.
HYTE’s new Nexus Link interface for its Powered by Nexus components is a revolutionary new single cable standard, designed to drastically reduce cable management clutter and enabling two-way communication between the Nexus software and the hardware nodes. Nexus Link combines power, fan control, lighting control, and sensor data into a single connection. Further expanding the accessibility layer between the user and HYTE hardware, Nexus will enable never-before-seen qRGB capabilities and control for a variety of new third-party peripherals, creating a cohesive lighting universe.
"Our aim is to create a seamless loop of empathy and response between you and your technology,” said Rob Teller, Product Director of HYTE. “Nexus adapts to your state of mind, reflecting your feelings within its digital capabilities. Keeb allows a tangible way to express those feelings, turning them into digital counterparts. Meanwhile, the Portal brings them back into the physical world, rendering your state of mind through the hardware. In essence, we're closing the gap between feeling and function, ensuring your tech isn't just a tool, but an understanding companion."
Portal – To Another World
NP50 Nexus Portal allows users to bring their PC into the world of Nexus by providing fan and lighting control as well as thermal and acoustic sensing. Three Nexus Link Type-C channels enable the seamless connection of HYTE’s suite of Powered by Nexus components while the legacy PWM fan control and three pin ARGB outputs allow for the control and customization of third-party components. NP50 is designed to fit into a 2.5” bay for easy mounting and comes with a cover shroud to help route input and output cables to further promote cable management.
Link, Light - Limitless
PQ10 and PQ30 qRGB Light Strips provide 24-bit color depth and harmoniously integrate into the Nexus Link ecosystem via the Nexus Link Type-C connectors. PQ10 features a 33 cm, 20-pixel qRGB array while the larger variant, the PQ30, features a 1 m, 62-pixel qRGB array. Equipped with neodymium magnets on the bottom, PQ Light Strips are easily attachable to any system and come with adhesive mounting clips for non-metal surfaces.
Keeb – It Fresh
A fresh take on the previously announced KEEB SR65, HYTE’s Keeb TKL features a tenkeyless (TKL) layout with 93 remappable keys. The Durock Creamy Yellow 55g factory lubricated linear switches provide a smooth and satisfying feel with every key stroke while the included Durock V2 gold-plated stabilizers complete a high-end typing experience. Keeb's polycarbonate body diffuses a 155-pixel qRGB array across the surface before being further illuminated through the doubleshot, shine-through PBT keycaps. A customizable dual rotary wheel sits in the top left corner of Keeb while dedicated media keys featuring low-profile blue clicky switches are included just below for quick access and control. Keeb will connect to systems through a USB Type-C to Type-C cable for universal connectivity.
HYTE’s Powered by Nexus components, including NP50 Nexus Portal, PQ10 and PQ30 Light Strips, and Keeb TKL will be on display in the HYTE/iBUYPOWER suite during Computex 2023.
