Cougar Entering Gaming Keyboard Market

Category: Input Devices
Posted: 05:58PM

Cougar is looking to expand its hardware lineup and has its sights set on the gaming keyboard market. Already known for its cases, power supplies, and fans, Cougar wants to ensure gamers are taken care of with a keyboard. The Cougar Attack mechanical keyboard uses Cherry MX Red switches and features backlit keys. There are also key caps and a key puller bundled with every Attack keyboard, so you can switch out the keys you use most. A G-key will disable the Windows button and prevent accidental presses during a gaming session. There are eight macro keys on the Attack keyboard that will let you set up your most used actions with ease. The Cougar Attack keyboard has a removable braided USB cable for an easier time transporting it or to make sure you do not damage anything during a rage quit.

The Cougar Attack mechanical keyboard has no release date or price just yet, but once that information is released we will let you know. The video below has a look at the PTX Platinum PSU in addition to the keyboard.

You sure they're reds? Their FB page says they're blacks. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=344830338923304&set=a.344830305589974.78368.210297429043263&type=1&theater

Both the press release and video state Cherry MX Red.

I would never spend money on "gaming" mice and keyboards. I just can't see the draw to spend $100+ on these when a $10-$20 keyboard can do just as good of a job without flashy LEDs and other useless features. This is coming from a guy with "gamer" in his username.

That's good, because excluding the non-functional pretty, gaming keyboards that are essentially the same as the $10-20 keyboards (ie both being rubber domed) are mainly trying to make up for their limited # readable simultanious key presses. This is in contrast to mechanical keyboards plugged into the ps/2 which can be every key on the keyboard... It also helps that keyboards on the ps/2 port aren't polled, it's interrupt driven, so you get a better response there too. There are plenty of ways polling for the 1000Hz usb polling keyboards can be less than optimal in their response ...And many people prefer the feel of the mechanical keyboards in at least one of the switch types,often increasing typing speed.
