OpenRGB 0.8 Comes As Big Update To This Open-Source, Cross-Vendor RGB Lighting Software
OpenRGB remains particularly popular with Linux users given the lack of vendor support for RGB lighting controls under Linux with the vendor-provided utilities while this open-source software also works on macOS and Windows too. OpenRGB can be particularly compelling where wanting to manage RGB-lit devices from multiple different vendors.
OpenRGB 0.8 brings support for a lot of new consumer hardware. There is in particular many different graphics cards with RGB lighting now controlled by OpenRGB. There are various ASUS, MSI, EVGA, Palit, and Colorful graphics cards now supported beyond what was found in prior releases. Other hardware supported by this new release include additional Razer devices, MSI Mystic Light controller improvements, more Logitech devices supported, LIFX controller support for LIFX LED bulbs, NVIDIA ESA controller support, Gigabyte Aorus RGB DRAM controller support, some Acer monitors, ASRock Polychrome lighting enhancements, Sony DualSense controller support, and Intel Arc A770 Limited Edition lighting support. A lot of other hardware has also seen new support or enhancements to existing support. The AMD Wraith Prism heatsink fan has also seen support extended to enable per-LED control on the ring zone.
OpenRGB 0.8 also has improvements to its user interface, the ability to automatically generate udev rules, bug fixes, and a wide variety of other enhancements.
