ROCCAT to Debut Two New 'Future Ready' Products at Gamescom

Author: ClayMeow


Taking place in Cologne, Germany, Gamescom is the biggest gaming convention in the world – yes, bigger than E3. As such, it's no suprise that Germany-based manufacturer ROCCAT likes to go all out for the event. This year is no different, with ROCCAT "bringing an entire gaming city" called ROCC-City. Aside from a cosplay competition, daily raffles twin ROCCAT products, and allowing attendees to face off against professional gamers, the highlight of ROCC-City is two new products ROCCAT are calling "Future Ready".

The first is a new gaming mouse that apparently allows you to alter the actual button layouts. According to ROCCAT's René Korte, "We asked the questions, 'What would it be like if you could do more than change a button assignment? What if you could physically change the button itself? What if you could make your own buttons from scratch?' We had to find out, and what we discovered upon creating this was a mouse that can be fully adjusted to any gaming genre fluidly." Color me intrigued.

The second product is a new keyboard with full smartphone integration. According to René, "Smartphones do so much these days. They're a second-screen experience for many gamers in a variety of ways, but we wanted to offer more than the next step in integrating smartphone and keyboard. We wanted to take the next ten steps. A keyboard designed not only to integrate your phone fully into the gaming realm, but one that takes the standard functionality of a phone, communication, and seamlessly weaves it into your gaming experience. Taking calls, texting, everything. Why can’t you have it all? We plan on giving that to the world, and showing you what that looks like at Gamescom."

These two new products mark the beginning of a new philosophy at ROCCAT – creating peripherals that adapt to the future of gaming experiences and the user's gaming needs. ROCCAT hopes that its new products can remain a part of a gamer's arsenal for many years, even as needs change over time. Gamescom 2014 takes place from August 13 - 17, and if you plan to attend, be sure to head on over to ROCC-City in Hall 8, Booth A10.

Corsair Introduces Two New Keyboards Powered by Cherry MX RGB Switches

Category: Input Devices
Posted: June 3, 2014 09:38PM
Author: bp9801


Back at the tail end of last year, Cherry unveiled its new MX RGB switches that feature per-key backlighting of 16.8 million colors. This January Corsair showed off its MX RGB Project, which was a joint effort between the two companies to develop products using those new switches. Now, during Computex, we see the fruit of that labor, as Corsair has officially announced the K95 and K70 RGB gaming keyboards. Both feature those MX RGB switches for a fully custom lighting experience, along with plenty of Corsair quality. The star of the show are those new switches, and when combined with some editing software, allows for any combination of lights and colors. You can highlight certain groupings in one color and another group in a different color, or apply a gradient or ripple pattern, set the lights to come on whenever you type, or pretty much anything your heart desires.

The K95 RGB keyboard features red mechanical switches and 18 dedicated G-Keys for a staggering 108 macro combinations or custom mapped keys, with onboard memory keeping everything stored. There are also dedicated media keys, a 100% anti-ghosted matrix, full key rollover, and a 1000Hz polling rate for accurate response during games. The K70 RGB does not include any of those G-Keys, but has everything else that the K95 RGB features. Both also have a black brushed aluminum anodized frame for some good looks even without the backlighting.

Corsair also introduced the new M65 RGB gaming mouse, which features three zones capable of displaying 16.8 million colors, just like the keyboards. It also has an 8200DPI gaming-grade laser sensor, an adjustable weight tuning system, and a dedicated sniper button for those precision control moments. DPI switching is handled on-the-fly, so you should always be able to find a perfect setting to match your game.

The K70 RGB keyboard with red mechanical switches will be available in late July for $169.99, while blue and brown switch models arrive in August. The K95 RGB keyboard and M65 RGB mouse both arrive in August, with the K95 RGB at $189.99 and the M65 RGB at $69.99.
