Introduction

Product on Review: GIGABYTE Aivia K8100 Gaming Keyboard
Manufacturer and Sponsor: GIGABYTE
MSRP: USD $69.99 / GBP £49.98



At the end of September we were invited to a conference by GIGABYTE, there they showcased a number of forthcoming products. One of the focal points at the seminar was the ferocious GIGABYTE SOC NVIDIA graphics cards. Although GIGABYTE did spend a majority of their time divulging information about these new cards they also went to great lengths to expose a new succession of gaming peripherals that will soon be hitting the market. Amongst the gaming peripherals under the spotlight were the M6900 and M6980 gaming mice which we recently reviewed, and a new gaming keyboard named Aivia K8100. Stealing the show today though is the Aivia K8100, a gaming keyboard with a whole host of interesting features such as 20 Anti-Ghosting keys, touch and slide volume control, macro functionality and silicone protector to name just a few.

Aivia is derived from Advanced, intuitive and versatile interface archetype. Quite a mouthful! The idea behind Aivia is to focus on the combination of subconscious, design and function coupled with the quest for a unique standard.



GIGABYTE's Take:
Especially designed for gamers, Aivia™ K8100 is equipped with four major features – enhanced ergonomic gaming keystroke keyboard design, GHOST™ macro engine, 20 anti-ghosting keys, and touch and slide volume control. With these four features, obtaining victory during gaming battles is no sweat.
