Cooler Master, a leading developer of PC and electronic components and accessories, today announces the NovaTouch TKL, a hybrid capacitive keyboard designed for high speed, extreme accuracy, and total comfort in the ultimate typing experience.
The Cooler Master NovaTouch TKL provides the ultimate typing experience for all - including the eSports professional and the expert typist. To achieve this, the NovaTouch TKL uses a Japanese made hybrid capacitive switch with a uniform 45 gram actuation force and a 1mm actuation point. This Cooler Master exclusive unique switch has an ultra smooth press, a tactile trigger point, and a rapid debounce time. The debounce time is 3x faster than traditional mechanical switches, allowing Actions per Minute (APM) to not be hindered by hardware limitations. Additionally, the switch is designed with a custom stem that is fully compatible with Cherry MX keycaps for keyboard customization enthusiasts.
The NovaTouch TKL is equipped internally with N-key rollover and anti-ghosting technology for improved typing accuracy. The keyboard also comes with on-the-fly repeat rate adjustment keys for quick control of key repetition. The keyboard runs at a 1000 Hz / 1 ms polling rate and is supported by 128kb of on-board memory for swift response of the functional media control keys, repeat rate changes, and key rollover to ensure that it will never let you down.
The NovaTouch TKL is a compact, tenkeyless keyboard that is perfect for those who favor portability and ergonomics. The smaller size keeps the mouse closer to your center to reduce shoulder stress during long periods of use and makes the keyboard easier to carry between events, meetings, and computer stations. NovaTouch TKL connects with a sturdy, detachable, micro-USB connector with a 1.8 meter braided cable designed for improved longevity alongside ease of access compared to other keyboard connections.
The NovaTouch TKL is available as of today in North America and Asia and will become available in Europe in mid November. The delay in Europe is due to Cooler Masters commitment to fully offer regional ANSI and ISO layouts that best suit the needs of the European market. The NovaTouch TKL will open for pre-order in Europe at the beginning of November.
