my guess based on the picture is there is a new light source, perhaps brighter than 4.0?

Still waiting for some side-by-side pics of the setups to see the difference.

Aside from the obvious color change, the design has been changed slightly on the heatsinks to improve efficiency.



The AIBs are already super bright. However, there's always room for improvement. Taking advantage of the newest technology, LEDs are approximately 10% brighter than AIB v4.0 with a slightly higher color temperature increase from 5500K to 6000K.
