Lastly, GIGABYTE was showing off its peripherals, including two products from the new Aivia line, the K8100 gaming keyboard and the M8600 wireless macro gaming mouse. The K8100 has an ergonomic design and comes is several sleek colors. It features 20 anti-ghosting keys, as well as the GHOST Engine, which is onboard software used to store macros so that they can be used even when the keyboard is connected to a different computer. There are five macro keys per mode with a total of five modes, switchable via the button in the upper-left corner. It also has LED backlighting with an on/off switch, two USB2.0 ports, and a touch and slide volume control that does not interrupt your games.
The M8600 features a 6000 DPI laser gaming sensor, and like the Razer Mamba, has dual-mode wired/wireless functionality, so if the 1000Hz wireless polling rate isn't sufficient enough for your gaming, you can always switch to USB. The M8600 has an ambidextrous design with forward and back buttons on both sides of the mouse. In addition, it features a horizontal-tilting scroll wheel and two buttons just below the scroll wheel. Like the K8100, it features the GHOST Engine to handle all your macro assignments.
