Logitech has unveiled a new mouse "specially designed for professional eSports players," the G Pro Gaming Mouse. The G Pro is built using Logitech's "most accurate optical gaming sensor, a metal spring button tensioning system, onboard memory for driver-free operation on tournament systems, and a comfortable, durable yet lightweight design." The mouse combines features from a pair of popular Logitech mice, utilizing the shape from the G100s and "incredible speed, accuracy and responsiveness of the G303." The PMW3366 optical sensor has DPI adjustable from 200-12,000 allowing it to accommodate all playstyles and games of choice. VP and general manager of gaming Ujesh Desai described the motivation for working with eSports professionals, stating "The benefit of working with eSports players is that they tell us what they like, and more importantly, what they don’t like."

G.SKILL Introduces the RIPJAWS KM570 MX and KM770 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboards

G.SKILL has long been known for its memory products, covering RAM and SSDs, but it has expanded into the peripheral side of things. Now it has two new additions to its keyboard lineup with the RIPJAWS KM570 MX and KM770 RGB mechanical gaming keyboards. Both models feature Cherry MX switches in Red, Blue, and Brown styles to better fit whatever kind you prefer. The KM570 MX keyboard features a compact shape and single color LED backlighting, yet it has plenty packed into its frame. The lighting effects can be customized with seven different presets accessed by a key press, giving you control over brightness, speed, and even per-key lighting to only cover the ones you need. Macros can recorded with a key press, too, and then stored on the onboard memory for convenient access at any PC. The onboard memory also stores the lighting settings, so you don't have to worry about those getting lost, either. The KM570 MX also has media controls, dedicated volume buttons, N-key rollover, full anti-ghosting, 1000Hz polling rate, and the ability to lock the Windows key. If you haven't made the leap to mechanical keyboards yet, this just may be your ticket.

Moving over to the KM770 RGB, this model is a svelte version of the big brother KM780, bringing the brushed aluminim top and all the same key features into a more compact package. The footprint of the KM770 RGB is now more inline with other keyboards, while the mouse cable holder now fits underneath the keyboard thanks to some grooves that hold it in place and out of the way. A new LED lighting system gives the KM770 more vibrant colors than its bigger brother, while also bringing the RGB lighting to the MR//Mode keys, hotkeys, and media controls on the top row. Everything on the KM770 benefits from the RGB lighting now, with users able to customize it however they wish through the software, including the Reactive and Ripple lighting patterns. If you own the KM780 RGB keyboard, a new software update also brings the RGB lighting to the top row and the full customization featured on the KM770. As someone who uses an RGB mechanical keyboard, the ability to customize the keys and lighting patterns brings out the uniqueness of the user. It really helps make your keyboard yours.

Both the G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM570 MX and KM770 RGB mechanical gaming keyboards arrive in the third quarter of this year. No prices were mentioned for either model, but expect that and a solid release date before long.

Tt eSPORTS Announces the Level 10 M Advanced Laser Gaming Mouse and Challenger Edge Membrane Gaming Keyboard

Author: bp9801


The right mouse or keyboard can make or break your gaming, as the feel and control need to be exact. Tt eSPORTS might just have the perfect mouse and keyboard, as it has introduced its Level 10 M Advanced Laser Gaming Mouse and the Challenger Edge Membrane Gaming Keyboard. The Level 10 M Advanced is an enhanced version of the previous Level 10 M mouse, now featuring a 16,000 DPI laser sensor that can be used on most surfaces. OMRON switches give the left and right buttons a lifespan of 50 million clicks, meaning it can last for a long time regardless of how often you game. The ergonomics of the Level 10 M Advanced have been altered to provide an even better grip, while the rest-plate design helps reduce friction while moving. Custom lighting is in everything, with the Level 10 M Advanced sporting RGB illumination of 16.8 million colors in three separate lighting zones to help make the mouse yours.

A 32-bit ARM controller and 64KB of built-in memory help the Level 10 M Advanced retain its settings across computers. You can plug it in and immediately get your perfect settings, including macros, on any computer without having to install software on each machine. DPI settings on the Level 10 M Advanced are altered via an on-the-fly button, with adjustments ranging from 400 to 3200 at the start. Installing the software lets you spin that DPI all the way up to 16,000, while also letting you set macros and assign custom lighting. The redesigned ergonomics mean the right side grip was changed for a better fit, while a new base plate on the left side helps your hand sit easier. The lighter weight helps reduce strain, with the 2D-Steering Axis system allowing adjustment of the height and angle of the Level 10 M Advanced. New coating materials on the mouse give it improved comfort, thanks to the soft touch finish, and durability.

Switching things over to the keyboard side, the Challenger Edge features a floating keycap design for a unique look that doesn't say it's a budget-friendly model. The black, brushed aluminum baseplate and floating keycap design means the RGB lighting can really shine through, with four different lighting styles giving it even more style. You can set the lighting to be static, pulse, pulse jump, or spectrum run, with colors and speed customized by you. The Challenger Edge is a membrane keyboard, but Tt eSPORTS has engineered it with N-key rollover and a short actuation distance to give it that mechanical feel. A Windows lock key is included to prevent accidental use during a game. In addition to that, the entire keyboard can be locked out to give you an easier time cleaning it.

The Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Advanced Laser Gaming Mouse is priced at $69.99, with availability soon. The Challenger Edge Membrane Gaming Keyboard comes in at $39.99, with it launching soon as well.

Corsair Unveils New RAPIDFIRE Keyboards With Cherry MX Speed Switches

Category: Input Devices
Posted: April 21, 2016 10:25AM
Author: bp9801


Corsair is well known for its cases, power supplies, RAM, and host of other PC products, with today's focus being on its keyboard line. Three new entries are introduced with a new piece of technology to set them apart, as each keyboard benefits from the Cherry MX Speed switch. This new switch has an actuation distance of just 1.2mm, 40% shorter than other Cherry MX switches. It lets the new keyboards register presses that much faster, which is why Corsair has dubbed the new line RAPIDFIRE. The Corsair K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE, K65 RGB RAPIDFIRE, and K70 RAPIDFIRE all receive the new Cherry MX Speed switch giving them the short actuation distance and a 45g actuation force, so a light press is all that's needed.

Both the K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE and K65 RGB RAPIDFIRE feature per-key multi-color backlighting, giving you a customized look against the brushed aluminum chassis. The K70 RAPIDFIRE simply has red LED backlighting, but either one works with the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) to set up the lighting however you wish. The lighting can be synchronized across the entire Corsair line with CUE, so your full setup can share the same look.

Both K70s are a full keyboard design, while the K65 is a tenkeyless model, so it's more compact for anyone desiring a small keyboard. All three benefit from full key rollover on USB and a 100% anti-ghosting design to register every key press. Each one comes with contoured and textured keys for FPS and MOBA layouts, with the spacebar also featuring a textured design. A key-puller is included to swap out the textured keys for regular ones or any others you might want to use, or to just make cleaning easier. A USB 2.0 passthrough is included on all three to connect a mouse, headset, or other device, while dedicated media controls mean adjusting volume or changing tracks doesn't require an awkward finger combination to pull off. The soft-touch wrist rest easily attaches or detaches for support during marathon gaming sessions.

The Corsair RAPIDFIRE keyboards are available today, with the K70 RGB priced at $169.99, the K65 RGB at $139.99, and the K70 at $129.99. All feature a two-year warranty and Corsair support.

Corsair, one of the leaders in many computer hardware areas, has long tried to give gamers absolute control, be it in the form of a mouse or keyboard. Today the company is going with the former, as its new M65 PRO RGB gaming mouse has arrived to give anyone the best control possible in their game of choice. The M65 PRO RGB features a 12,000 DPI optical sensor, the highest ever from Corsair; a surface calibration tuning utility; and high-precision switches to keep you gaming long after others might give out. The 12,000 DPI optical sensor provides "pixel-precise tracking" so you always know where you're at in the game, while the surface calibration tuning utility offers responsiveness for any surface you're playing on. Add in the aircraft-grade aluminum chassis, Omron switches rated at over 20 million clicks, a dedicated sniper button, and an advanced weight tuning system, and you just might have your new mouse.

Each M65 PRO RGB takes advantage of the CUE software to change button configuration, assign macros, and change up the lighting across three different zones. If you have a Corsair RGB keyboard, you can match the lighting across the two for a truly custom look. There are eight buttons to program with new assignments or macros, so the M65 PRO RGB can fit your exact playstyle with ease. Large PTFE glide pads on the bottom help the mouse move smoothly across any surface.

The Corsair M65 PRO RGB mouse is available now in a black color, while the M65 PRO RGB in white arrives next month. Both are priced at $59.99.

A couple years ago, Corsair introduced its Sabre RGB gaming mouse, bringing a lightweight option to fit a range of grip styles. Today Corsair has improved the Sabre RGB mouse with a new optical sensor that hits 10,000 DPI. It's a big jump from the 6400 DPI optical sensor of the original, and even the 8200 DPI laser version (the new model is optical-only). If 10,000 DPI is a bit too much all the time, you can adjust it all the way down to 100 DPI, or anything in between. You still get four-zone illumination with 16.8 million colors, eight programmable buttons, and a lightweight design that clocks in at just 100 grams. The eight buttons can be reprogrammed with the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) to fit whatever you need, from a keystroke to complex macros. The lighting can also be customized in CUE to fit your own style or even match your Corsair RGB keyboard, if you have one on your desk. The Sabre RGB also features an ergonomic design for comfortable gaming long into the night, a 1.8 meter braided cable with easy-flex design to avoid snags, and a 1000Hz polling rate.

The Corsair Sabre RGB gaming mouse is available now for $49.99.

Gamescom has officially kicked off in Cologne, Germany, and while plenty of games are going to be shown off during the conference, gaming gear will also be part of it. Corsair is a name many equate with a variety of computer hardware, from cases to RAM and SSDs, but today's announcement focuses on getting a deeper level of control in your games. An assortment of new peripherals have been unveiled at Gamescom, with the STRAFE RGB mechanical keyboards, the Scimitar RGB MMO/MOBA mouse, and VOID gaming headsets leading the way.

First up are the STRAFE RGB mechanical keyboards, which come in two varieties: STRAFE RGB and STRAGE RGB Silent. Both feature Cherry MX switches, RGB backlighting for a truly custom key lighting setup, FPS/MOBA keycaps with a textured and contoured style, anti-ghosting on the whole keyboard, and macro support on every key, but the difference is in which Cherry MX switches each one uses. The STRAFE RGB can come with either Cherry MX Reds or Browns, but the STRAFE RGB Silent uses a new switch dubbed a Cherry MX Silent. Corsair says these new switches combine with the noise-suppressing chassis of the keyboard to deliver up to 30% less noise than other mechanical keyboards, which should make anyone in your house or office quite appreciative.

Moving on to the Scimitar RGB MMO/MOBA mouse, this uniquely designed mouse features 12 mechanical side buttons paired with Corsair's patent pending Key Slider control system. This system allows the buttons to be moved up to 8mm to always keep them within your reach, so regardless of hand size, the macros can always be laid out to ensure a victory. The Scimitar mouse also has a 12,000 DPI optical sensor to provide the utmost precision in your game of choice.

The last part of Corsair's lineup are the VOID gaming headsets, which come in wireless, USB, and analog configurations. All feature microfiber-wrapped memory foam earcups designed to accomodate your entire ear for comfortable gaming sessions, without missing a moment of the action, and 50mm drivers. The wireless and USB versions have InfoMic status LEDs and a CUE Control dial to let you make audio adjustments without pausing the game, while also including RGB lighting, EQ, and Dolby 7.1 surround sound. Battery life is rated at 16 hours of uninterrupted gameplayThe analog version comes with a universal stereo solution that allows it to be used on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and mobile devices.

In addition to all this gear, Corsair also updated its CUE software with new presets for some unique lightshows, easier than ever lighting effects, and synchronized lighting across keyboards, mice, and headsets. The CUE software also allows for macros to be set up on keyboards and mice, mouse sensitivity and button setup, headset EQ, surround sound, and many more options depending on what items you are currently running.

The Corsair STRAFE RGB and STRAFE RGB Silent mechanical keyboards will be available in October for $149.99 and $159.99, respectively, with pre-orders starting this month. The Scimitar RGB MMO/MOBA mouse launches next month for $79.99, while all three VOID gaming headsets arrive in August. The VOID analog is $79.99, the VOID USB for $99.99, and the VOID Wireless $129.99 for the carbon color, or the Wireless SE with a snazzy Yellowjacket color and wireless extension dock (and Best Buy exclusivity) for $149.99.
