The Glorious PC Gaming Race returns this week with a novel peripheral for gaming rarely seen outside of the specialist sphere. They're introducing the GMMK Pro 75 Barebone Keyboard, a 75% sized keyboard chassis with gasket-mounted hot-swappable switch design that offers a premium feel and high levels of customisation within a compact and understated footprint. It's available to preorder now from Overclockers.co.uk in ANSI and IOS layouts, black and white colours, priced at 169.99 inc. V.A.T.

Mechanical keyboards are something of a gateway drug. You start with your mainstream model, with preferred (typically Cherry MX) switch type. And then it escalates... you're looking at custom keycaps, rare mechanical switch sets, variant frames. And suddenly you're customising your own keyboard, kitting out an excellent frame with your perfect combination of components. The GMMK Pro 75 aims to help you scratch that itch.

In addition to the gasket-mounted hotswappable switch design that will dampen keystrokes for a more subtle acoustic response, the GMMK Pro 75 also features customisable RGB lighting for each of its 83 key positions and a programmable rotary dial which they're calling the 'rotary encoder'. Further attention to detail in the form of 'GOAT' lubed stabilisers for a smooth and stable action highlights the premium nature of this aluminium barebones keyboard.
