Gigabyte is going to make its entry in the gamer peripheral market with a mechanical gaming keyboard. TweakTown published a photo of the board and says the non-click Cherry MX-linear keys will have a life cycle of 60 million keystrokes.
It marks the first entrant for GIGABYTE into the PC gaming peripherals market and has indeed sparked some attention. It has a truck load of features which we will cover in our exclusive review soon but to summarize some of the features – it has 10 programmable gaming hotkeys that supports up to 103 customizable profiles. These profiles are also able to be setup and changed with the included 512KB onboard memory through the GHOST Engine software suite.
If that is not enough for you, the GK-K8000 even includes the C-Media 6300 single audio chip for USB stereo audio for microphone in & earphone out.
The Gigabyte GK-K8000 keyboard will be available by the end of April.
