Can we expect existing MSI devices to integrate into Synapse?

    Hello, I just can't find any in-depth information about Razer's recent announcement of opening up Synapse to third-parties such as MSI.

    Regarding the statement that compatible devices would be dropping during this year's 4Q, does that mean that existing products supported by, let's say, MSI Mystic Lightning won't work at all with Synapse?

    I did try contacting MSI, but no responses, so maybe some staff here can light some light or somebody has some video or article on the thing?

    Thanks.

    Depends on what products move over I am pretty sure. I think NZXT Was said to be going to Razer Synapse now, but I would say you would be able to use there CAM software still for water coolers and all of the other RGB things NZXT make. This might be the same with other companies that don't directly compete with Razer, but for some companies that don't have their own software and use something by MSI, ASUS or Corsair instead might just go to Razer, but it is hard to say until there is more said on the whole system.

    Not sure whos in on it but i think Corsair also announced the same kind of third party thing with their software, not sure if they announced who was going to be on it yet or not.

    MSI is included as part of the collaboration with Razer, alongside Ducky, NZXT as you said, Lian-Li, ThermalTake, etc: https://press.razer.com/press-releases/razer-chroma-lighting-now-enabled-on-third-party-devices/

    That page is all the information I can find on the thing tho...

    Hey Guys,

    Just to clear things up... MSI (and other partner's) products won't be moving over to Synapse. The update will allow all partners to sync their lighting (both in-game and outside) with Razer Chroma peripherals via simple universal controls.

    As mentioned in the press release, we are on-track to roll out of Chroma Connected Devices program in Q4 this year.

    Cheers!

    Oh, so it's more like a bridge then, sounds great! As long as MSI and AMD support their existing stuff, and make it so the lights won't be an eyeshore on my synced Razer stuff, that will be great. Looking forward to more info.
