Krypton was a brand of computers originally sold by Australian business man Eric White after he discontinued operations with CXG Sphinx.  The first Krypton computers were sold in 1994.

Both Excalibur and Millennium started their business selling Eric White Krypton chess computers under their own Brand names.  Krypton was also a mainstay for the English company Systema Electronics who co-branded Krypton with Systema on their packaging and literature.

Most recently the Krypton brand was owned by Year Vantage Holdings Limited, China who  is a manufacturer of electronic products which are made in its own factory in Guangdong province in China. The factory size is over 3000 square meters plus staff and workers accommodation and facilities. Its production includes proprietary products and products made under OEM agreements with customers from a number of countries. Production capacity is approximately 3 million pieces per year. The factory is LGA certified and the company has the right to use the GS quality mark.

Brand names used by Year Vantage Holdings Limited are Brain Games, Krypton and RYO.

In the year 2018 you will still see redesigned and repacked versions of Krypton computers sold under different Company brand names.
