Corsair, one of the leaders in many things computer related, has annouced a slew of new products at Computex. Keyboards, mice, cases, and RAM are all included, with something for everyone to drool over. First up are the keyboards and mice, with Corsair introducing some new switches for the Vengeance K70 keyboard, the brand-new Vengeance K65 keyboard, the Raptor K50 gaming keyboard, and the Raptor M40 and M30 gaming mice. The K70, introduced a few months ago with Cherry MX Red switches, has now been decked out with both Cherry MX Blue and Brown switches to give users more of a tactile feel (along with a distinctive 'click' on the Blues).
The Vengeance K65, meanwhile, is Corsair's first compact mechanical keyboard. Eschewing the number pad yet keeping the key spacing of a full-size keyboard, Corsair is able to offer a more portable version of its popular mechanical keyboard line. The K65 features a 100% anti-ghosted matrix, full key rollover, and a detachable cable for easy transport to LAN parties.
Corsair's Raptor K50 gaming keyboard is of the membrane variety, and it features customizable backlighting of 16.8 million colors. It also includes 18 fully programmable macro keys, with three profiles to enable up to 54 macros in total stored in the onboard memory. There's also six dedicated multimedia keys, a Windows lock key to disable it, and 100% anti-ghosting with full key rollover on USB. The Raptor M40 and M30 gaming mice both feature an Avago ADNS-3090 4000DPI optical sensor, large PTFE pads for smooth gliding, DPI switching, and a right-handed design. The M40 resembles the Corsair M60/65, while the M30 is all smooth contours.
The Vengeance K70, K65, and Raptor K50 keyboards are going to be available in July for $129.99, $89.99, and $99.99, respectively, with the Raptor M40 and M30 mice available this month for $49.99 and $39.99, respectively.
