The "second-10th" TR BBQ kicks off tomorrow, and the folks at G.Skill have sent us some hardware to give away to some lucky attendees. G.Skill's contribution is a last-minute one, so the only hardware we have on hand to photograph is the Trident Z 32GB DDR4-3200 CL16 memory kit shown relaxing in a hammock below. This kit spreads its capacity across four 8GB sticks with a spiffy black-and-white paint job.
Somewhere en route are also a collection of G.Skill peripherals. The Ripjaws KM780 RGB is a mechanical gaming keyboard with Cherry MX brown switches and per-key programmable lighting. It also boasts on-the-fly macro recording and a mouse cable holder among its long list of features.
The Ripjaws MX780 RGB mouse is a logical companion for the keyboard. The MX780 is ambidextrous and has an 8,200-DPI Avago laser sensor. Its LEDs are programmable using G.Skill's unified driver system. It also allows for plenty of physical customization thanks to built-in height adjustment and interchangeable side grips.
Last but not least is the Ripjaws SR910 - Real 7.1 headset. Not content to emulate surround sound, G.Skill packed the SR910 with five neodymium drivers for each ear. The headset also has a noise-canceling mic and a nifty per-channel in-line volume controller.
If you're coming to the BBQ, we'll see you tomorrow! If you're not able to make it, you can check out the live stream right here. We start streaming early in the morning and go late into the night, so you can watch everything from the secret rib production process to the grand finale of the fireworks show live. This year, as long as it's dark enough to see, we'll have the live stream chat projected onto a 120" screen in the yard, so come hang out with us if you can.
