SK Hynix

Klevv, a subsidiary of SK Hynix, has been around for quite a while targeting mass retail market with mainstream DRAM and SSD products. Recently Klevv decided to address the growing market of gamers and PC enthusiasts with more advanced offerings featuring fancy cooling systems and above-average performance. At Computex, the brand is demonstrating its upcoming RGB-lit products that will hit the market in late summer or early autumn.
