XPG HEADSHOT also won a 2021 Golden Pin Design Award

Taipei, Taiwan – October 21, 2021 – XPG, a fast-growing provider of systems, components, and peripherals for Gamers, Esports Pros, and Tech Enthusiasts, today announces that the XPG HEADSHOT gaming mouse and GENESIS DDR5 memory module have been recognized for design excellence with 2021 Good Design Awards.


The XPG HEADSHOT gaming mouse is a one-of-a-kind gaming mouse manufactured via 4D printing and AI technology. 4D printing is used to create a mechanical structure with a lattice mesh exterior that provides for an incredibly sturdy yet lightweight mouse. Thanks to 4D printing, the HEADSHOT can be custom-made to match the shape of an individual's hands for personalized ergonomics. Its design process was started with three key aspects, light weight, incomparable ergonomics and stylish design. XPG HEADSHOT also recently won Taiwan’s most influential design award, the Golden Pin Design Award.



The XPG GENESIS DDR5 is a next-generation memory module that aims to bring next-level performance to PC gamers and PC enthusiasts. As a top-of-the-line DRAM module, it sports a premium look and feel that is dominated by two metal surface treatments, one glossy and one matte. The module also makes use of intersecting geometric grooves and lines, and a beveled surface for added effect.
