MSI teases RGB-free MEG X570 UNIFY motherboard - An "All Black Beast" from MSI

Do you hate RGB? Those rainbow lights that can turn sleek and refined systems into a constantly changing mess of often unwanted colour? Yes, RGB lighting may be loved by certain sections of the PC building community, but that doesn't mean that the craze is loved universally.  

Some buyers would prefer to build systems without RGB lighting, removing from their systems what could easily become one of its most expensive aspects. You need only type RGB fan into Amazon to see how expensive RGB products can be from major brands. Now, it looks like MSI is creating something specifically for the anti-RGB crowd. 

Presenting the MSI MEG X570 UNIFY, an "all black beast" which seemingly features no RGB lighting elements. Yes, MSI has cut away that feature to deliver the stealthy motherboard that you've always wanted.  The question now is how much will this motherboard cost, and will it be cheaper than RGB illuminated offerings. 

So far, MSI has only said that this product is "on the way" and that it will "embrace the darkness". Let's hope it performs as good as it looks.

I've not dabbled in RGB yet, can this not be turned off anyway?
IF so I can't really see much point to it, the cost savings of taking away the RGB elements are not going to be seen by the consumer due to all the bureaucracy, administration and all of the behind the scenes work that we don't see. I'd guess that due to the popularity of RGB, the actual hardware is extremely cheap, The underlying software is already in place and making this is costing MSI money?Quote

In many cases, it can be disabled, but why pay extra for something you don't even like? The cost savings can definitely be seen by the customer if they really make it noticeably cheaper.Quote

IF is the big word here. They may be priced the same but I will be shocked if its less. There are so many costs involved in releasing what is officially a different SKU (different product code so will need all the certifications re done, copywrite protection ect) that I expect these to cost the same if not more as the demand nowadays will be "niche".Quote

Long ago I'd agree. But now with so many base components supplied with RGB by default, it would become more costly to make a "one off" line of items without the RGB.Quote
