IOGEAR Unveils $49 HVER STEALTH Premium RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

IOGEAR Unveils $49 HVER STEALTH Premium RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

IOGEAR, today announced the addition of the HVER STEALTH premium mechanical gaming keyboard to its Kaliber Gaming line of gaming and eSports products. Available immediately for $49.99, this streamlined mechanical keyboard boasts a variety of must-have gaming features, premium build quality and extreme durability.

“Our HVER keyboards are known for their edgy appearance, premium build quality, solid feature set and affordable price points. While the HVER keyboards have done well historically, many of our customers, streamers and influencers have provided similar feedback, saying that the keyboard performs great but looks too aggressive. So, we reassessed and created a keyboard that combines what people loved about previous HVER models with the physical qualities they liked about other high-end gaming keyboards,” said Derek Hamilton, product manager at IOGEAR.

The Basics Done Right

The HVER STEALTH features a standard 110-key layout but elevates the experience by hovering the keys above the keyboard’s subtle but stylish brushed aluminum face plate. This provides a comfortable typing experience for everyday use, while also providing very crisp, direct switch actuations for gameplay. The textured double-injected keycaps are easy to read and provide a durable non-slip surface that will endure hundreds of hours of gameplay without wearing off. Under those keycaps, customers will find high-quality brown, boxed-style mechanical switches that deliver a subtle tactile click upon actuation and the perfect amount of noise for mixed use. Keeping things stable is a weighted base and rubber feet that ensure the keyboard won’t slip out of position, even in the most rigorous gaming sessions.

Tons of Must-Have Features for Gamers

Loaded with advanced features for its price, the HVER STEALTH features:

  • Edge-lit illumination with programmable per-key RGB lighting
  • Programmable keys for macro functions, shortcuts, etc.
  • Intuitive software to set custom backlight and keyboard functions
  • Full N-Key Rollover
  • Windows key lockout that prevents accidental pop ups while gaming
  • Swappable W-A-S-D and arrow keys for MMO players and left-handed gamers

The HVER STEALTH (GKB740) from IOGEAR is available now at

SolidRun Logo


SolidRun, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance System on Module (SOM) solutions, Single Board Computers (SBC) and network edge solutions, today announces its all-new family of LX2-Lite SOMs and CLEARFOG LX2-Lite Development Platform, based on the powerful Layerscape® LX2162A SoC from NXP® Semiconductors. With a footprint measuring just 58mm x 48mm, or about 25% the size of standard COM Express 7 solution, the LX2-Lite Mini SOM is the smallest 16-core SOM platform in the world.

The new LX2-Lite SOM packs all the embedded power management, memory, storage, and I/O subsystems developers need. Ideal for modern software-defined networking solutions, edge network security hardware, data processing units and more, this powerful SOM combines the efficiency of NXP’s 16nm FinFET process architecture and up to 16 Arm® Cortex®-A72 cores with advanced data path acceleration optimized for L2/3 packet processing, security offload and robust traffic management and quality of service. The SOM also boasts a 50Gbps security acceleration engine and 88Gbps data compression engine for maximum network security and data routing application performance.

Developers can maximize the LX2-Lite SOM’s vast amounts of I/Os and SerDes lanes using the new CLEARFOG LX2-Lite Developer Platform. This platform offers the perfect foundation for creating high performance SD-WAN, network security, and industrial control solutions, and boasts a solid mix of high-performance networking, PCIe, USB and SATA connections, to satisfy a variety of hardware applications.

“SolidRun has been for many years the go-to source for flexible developer solutions based on today’s most powerful processing platforms,” said Mordi Blaunstein, VP sales and marketing at SolidRun. “The new ultra-compact LX2-Lite SOMs and CLEARFOG developer platform will prove to be important additions to our lineup, as they will help developers create advanced edge network appliances of various form factors that are capable of extreme computing and high-speed communications. We look forward to launching a variety of edge and data center networking solutions that maximize the benefits of this powerful SOM in the months to come.”

The new LX2-Lite SOMs are capable of incredible speed and come in three varieties, a 16-core version based on the NXP LX2162A, a 12-core version based on the NXP LX2122A, and an 8-core version based on the NXP LX2082A processor. Boasting 12 SerDes lanes, the LX2-Lite-based SOM supports up to four 25Gbps Ethernet connections (up to a max of 100Gbps) and up to eight PCIe Gen 3 connections concurrently, as well as several combinations of the two for vast application flexibility. Each SOM features a high-speed USB 3.0 interface, and general industrial connectivity options like UART and I2C. All SOMs feature up to 32GB of DDR4 system memory, 8GB of eMMC storage, 8Mbit serial peripheral interface with 64MB of flash memory and SD/MMC interface. SolidRun LX2-Lite SOMs support Linux, as well as Debian, Ubuntu and Yocto developer operating systems.

“Our LX2162A line of processors offers a powerful solution because it takes the robust processing power of our popular LX2160A SoC and shrinks the form factor to better serve the growing market of high-performance software-defined edge network security appliances, the worldwide shift to SD-WAN network architectures, and 5G ORAN applications while maintaining a size that’s ideal for PCIe add-in cards and mini-ITX appliances,” said Toby Foster, senior product marketing manager at NXP. “Working with SolidRun, we’re able to help engineers jumpstart the development of next-generation cloud and edge network solutions based on our LX2-Lite platform, while expediting the process of turning those prototypes into scalable, market-ready solutions.”

The CLEARFOG LX2-Lite Developer Platform from SolidRun streamlines prototyping and reduces development time for solutions based on the LX2Lite processor-based SOMs. This platform features a variety of expansion and communications options, including:

  • 2x SFP28 ports (25GbE each)

“Whether it’s a basement or living room, selecting the right gear to create a great sounding home theater can be a daunting task, but our Monolith line makes it easy,” said Hobie Sechrest, Monolith business unit manager, Monoprice. “We engineer our Monolith THX Certified speakers to the highest standards for quality and value, and design them to meet the strictest performance standards to ensure an optimal home cinema experience in rooms of all sizes.

THX® Certified Compact On-Wall Speakers – Available Immediately


Featuring a slim and elegant cabinet design, the Monolith M-OW1 ($299.99 MSRP) packs a high-performance 4.5-inch concentric driver with an inset 20mm silk dome tweeter featuring an optimized waveguide and two 4.5-inch passive radiators. Ideally suited for use as front-, center- and surround-channel speakers, these 4-ohm on-wall speakers deliver a surprisingly flat frequency response from 70Hz to 20kHz.

Dynabook Unveils Premium Performance Portégé X40 Laptop with 12th Gen Intel Core vPro CPUs


Ringing in a new era of premium business computing, Dynabook Americas, Inc., formerly Toshiba PC Company, today announced the all-new, ultra-premium 14-inch Portégé® X40-K. Benefitting from new hybrid-architecture 12th Gen Intel® Core™ P-Series 28W processor options, Windows 11 Pro and a skillfully crafted dark blue aluminum chassis that is both stylish and durable, this new laptop boasts greater performance, uncompromising portability and robust security.

“With a more dispersed workforce becoming the norm for businesses, IT departments are challenged with procuring computing solutions that offer the best mix of portability, performance, and productivity features. Our premium 14-inch Portégé X40-K was designed specifically for this,” said James Robbins, general manager, Dynabook Americas, Inc. “This new laptop checks all the right boxes for customers. It’s lightweight, powerful, secure, and loaded with features. Furthermore, it is very stylish, which is something modern buyers demand, and comes reinforced with a durable aluminum chassis and a warranty that ensures these laptops continue fostering years of worry-free productivity.”

The New Look of Premium

Featuring a new, compact, dark blue aluminum chassis with diamond cut perimeter edges, the Portégé X40-K is the perfect mix of style, form, and function. Created with the hybrid workplace in mind, the laptop excels in portability, measuring just 17.9mm thin and weighing under 3.2 pounds. Though thin and light, it was engineered and tested to MIL-STD-810H standards for strength and durability to ensure robust endurance to the rigors of daily use in or out of the office. Opening the lid exposes a vibrant, thin-bezel 14-inch IPS or multi-touch display, premium backlit keyboard, and large multi-touch ClickPad embedded into a comfortable aluminum palm rest – all of which exudes quality craftsmanship.

With Great Power Comes Great Productivity

With full-performance 28-watt 12th Gen Intel® Core processor options, the Portégé X40-K benefits from the massive performance boost and enhanced efficiency afforded by Intel’s all-new hybrid architecture. Configurable with Core i5 or i7 CPUs, up to 64GB of memory and reinforced with ultra-fast SSD storage, Wi-Fi 6E and Thunderbolt 4, the Portégé X40-K delivers exceptional performance for multi-tasking. Intel® Iris® Xe graphics adds crisp and smooth video performance, support for up to four external 4K displays, and enhanced security.

A variety of ports, including full-size HDMI®, Gigabit LAN, 3.5mm audio and USB-A, as well as a microSD™ card slot provide convenient, adapter-free expansion. When not in use, Sleep & Charge technology keeps a USB port powered, allowing the laptop to charge a smartphone and other accessories.

Configured For Your Business Needs

The Portégé X40-K can be pre-configured with Windows 11 Pro, which offers tons of enhanced productivity and security features, and provides users a more tailored and intuitive user experience than previous generations of the operating system. Windows 11 can be managed with familiar tools and processes, making it a natural upgrade path for any PC user. For businesses waiting to migrate, these laptops can be ordered with Windows 10 Pro, and would be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 11 Pro when they’re ready to make the transition.

Security Taken Seriously

Among the most secure laptops in the world, the Portégé X40-K meets Microsoft’s strict Secured-core PC requirements and addresses the security and manageability challenges posed by the accelerated shift towards flexible working patterns. Dynabook’s proprietary BIOS offers another extensive security layer to mitigate BIOS-level security threats, while numerous integrated features like Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0, enterprise-grade encryption and optional Windows Hello fingerprint and face authentication provide unrelenting protection against data, device and identity threats.

Even with a distributed workforce, IT departments are easily able to support and manage these laptops using baked-in intelligent manageability capabilities. Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT), as integrated in new 12th Gen Intel Core processors, offers streamlined management of devices – even remotely. Dynabook’s proprietary BIOS can also be upgraded and managed remotely to maintain the highest levels of security.

Backed by One of The Best Warranties in the Business

Backed by Dynabook’s proven reliability and industry-leading +Care Service® Warranty1 with On-site, the new Portégé X40-K from Dynabook will provide years of worry-free reliability. Featured SKUs are backed by three years of coverage, while Build-to-Order configurations are backed by four years. With additional access to an extensive service and support network, Dynabook +Care Service warranties help businesses minimize downtime and reduce IT costs.

Dynabook will offer multiple configurations of the Portégé X40-K laptop through the company’s network of resellers or at MSRP pricing will start at $1,349.99 for the Portégé X40-K.
