This Summer we’ve had the pleasure of being involved in numerous Corsair product launches as the brand broadens their portfolio of products but today we aren’t just looking at a new gaming peripheral but a new sub-division. Today, Corsair unveil their new gaming brand – a new division of Corsair which celebrates the movement from PC hardware manufacturer to PC gaming brand.
Never has there been a bigger push in the direction of eSports. In the last 5 years gaming has grown significantly – there are more events, more gamers and more games. Corsair Gaming are desperately wanting to be a part of this by getting involved in the community, with developers and industry partners.
K70 RGB is a mechanical gaming keyboard which incorporates Cherry MX RGB switches. This keyboard opts for a traditional layout that omits the bank of macro-keys found on the larger K95. Sharing the original K70’s core design and build quality, the K70 RGB takes keyboard lighting to the next level with per-key modification and an extensive software suite complete control. Dedicated media keys as well as a 100% anti-ghosted matrix, full key rollover and a 1000Hz reporting rate all combine for fast, accurate input for gaming.

The Corsair Gaming K70 RGB is the next evolutionary addition to our line of 100% fully mechanical gaming keyboards. Featuring the world’s first German-engineered Cherry MX RGB key switches as part of a limited-time Corsair exclusive, the K70 RGB allows for 16.8 million per-key color animated backlighting by utilizing an onboard ARM processor and a powerful lighting controller that uses new Corsair Gaming software to display fully customizable lighting effects such as gradient and ripple patterns. The software will also allow for powerful key sequencing actions across multiple modes and profiles in conjunction with the lighting.
