Last January, Corsair captured the excitement of the gaming world with the MX RGB Project - a prototype keyboard demonstrating the brilliance of Cherry MX RGB mechanical key switches with customizable per-key 16.8 million color animated backlighting. After months of anticipation, the K95 RGB and K70 RGB mechanical gaming keyboards, plus a M65 RGB gaming mouse, are making their debut. The new keyboards are the first and only keyboards featuring the high-precision German-made Cherry MX RGB key switches.
The K70 RGB and K95 RGB exhibit all of Corsair's hallmark features: sleek design, ultra-accurate components, and sturdy metal construction combining for minimalist looks, pinpoint accuracy, and long-lasting performance. Powerful editing software enables creation of unlimited lighting effects and macros, from solid colors that can highlight key groupings, to gradients and ripple patterns that can provide a visual cue that a macro or in-game timer has completed. In addition, program effects such as background, foreground, action, and type lighting to run concurrently with up to ten levels of brightness. These customization options let a gamer match PC system lighting, find gaming keys faster, and provide critical visual feedback for executing in-game objectives.
