Cooler Master announces the Quick Fire Rapid-i, a new mechanical keyboard with a MSRP of 99EUR.
Cooler Master, a leading creator, innovator and manufacturer of desktop components, mobile accessories, and gaming peripherals, today announces the arrival of the much requested Quick Fire Rapid-i, a fully featured and backlit mechanical keyboard. Quick Fire Rapid-i builds upon its predecessor’s legacy but now with full keyboard illumination and unique lighting effects in a small TKL (tenkeyless) form factor.

Stylistic Illumination
Powered by a 32-bit ARM processor, the Rapid-i’s ActivLite Technology incorporates 5 lighting modes with 5 brightness levels. Using ActivLite, users find themselves adding a richer aesthetic to their space. One such mode enables the backlighting to brightly illuminate upon each key press and fade softly as your fingers move on to the next key. The effect is a deeply satisfying visual trail to bring a unique effect to your typing experience. Because of the Rapid-i’s 32bit ARM processor more backlight modes can, and will be added for the Rapid-i in the future. ActivLite also allows users to individually program keys for unique game and application uses, while the onboard memory makes it possible to save profiles that store up to four different presets.

Sleek & Feature Rich
Featuring a smooth and clean aesthetic due to the soft touch rubberized coating. The Quick Fire Rapid–i also includes laser-marked keycaps and a non-glossy matte finish. A response time of 1ms and Cherry MX Switches offer gamers a necessary consistency to respond quickly in the latest games. Multimedia shortcuts are available to also ensure that media can be controlled with ease. With N Key Rollover (NKRO) gamers deploying the Quick Fire Rapid-i can activate as many keys on the keyboard simultaneously as needed to perform their ingame actions

Ergonomic Size with Hassle-free Travel
Travel with ease by simply removing the included braided USB cable and storing it. At all times, the Quick Fire Rapid-i makes itself a more journey-ready partner with its super-slim body and tenkeyless formfactor. It allows the keyboard to be more ergonomically-friendly while being easier to transport than most full-sized mechanical keyboards.
