Speedlink's ORIOS RGB Gaming Mouse

Weertzen, September 5th 2018: Right on time for the IFA, gaming accessories specialist Speedlink presents its ORIOS series – a premium range of RGB products. Thanks to a stunning range of features, including programmable lighting modes, gamers will now be able to immerse their desktop in up to 16.7 million colours with a gaming mouse, two mousepads and two keyboards to choose from. The centrepiece of the range is a keyboard with opto-mechanical switches.

Even though conventional rubber dome keyboards do a great everyday job, keyboards with mechanical keys are a touch more easier to use and accurate where it really counts. In the hardcore gaming sector, mechanical keys are often the deciding factor between victory or defeat. Opto-mechanical switches are the latest tech trend as they are incredibly accurate and extremely durable – even when taking a hammering during gaming. Instead of metal contacts, opto-mechanical switches use an infrared light barrier. When the key is actuated, this action is registered precisely and with zero lag, plus there’s virtually no wear and tear as the contacts no longer rub against each other.

“We attach great importance to meeting our customers’ varying needs, including when it comes to keyboards. For everyday desktop use, our standard keyboards are perfect for the job. That said, it is also extremely important to us to help our customers achieve their personal best on the PC such as when battling it out in the tough world of esports. The opto-mechanical switches offer top-level precision, actuation speed and durability”, explained Rainer Nawratil, Senior Product Manager at Speedlink.

But Speedlink is going one step further and equipping its keyboard with programmable illumination and a choice of 16.7 million colours. The colours can be displayed in different modes and customised to suit the gamer’s personal preferences. These include interactive modes such as the spectacular Raindrop Effect where the colourful light spreads out across the keyboard.

Professional gaming features such as anti-ghosting with n-key rollover testify to the experience Speedlink has drawn directly from its collaboration with leading esports teams.

The keyboard has a detachable wrist rest for ergonomic comfort, and the software-programmable macro and key functions deliver a truly customisable gaming experience.

The ORIOS RGB Gaming Mouse with its configurable RGB illumination also delivers a breathtaking light show. Its seven programmable buttons enable gamers to personalise the mouse to suit their unique gaming style. With their own macros and the high-end Pixart 3325 gaming sensor, which boasts an interpolated sensor resolution of up to 10,000dpi, gamers can respond perfectly to any situation – with the mouse remaining safely in their hand thanks to its rubberised finish.

Those looking for the ultimate light show will find it in the RGB-illuminated mousepad to accompany the mouse and keyboard combo. The ORIOS RGB Gaming Mousepad combines eye-catching light effects with maximum gaming comfort. Thanks to its micro-texture finish the mouse will glide virtually friction free for effortless movement. The light effects can also be programmed to suit, glowing in nine varied and eye-catching modes.

“With our illuminated ORIOS RGB products we aim to give gamers the chance to personalise what goes on off-screen to match the on-screen action. This takes the gaming experience to a whole new level, plus makes everything simply more fun”, added Rainer.

At the same time Speedlink will also be launching a multicoloured illuminated LED keyboard and a multicoloured LED mousepad under the ORIOS name. These products will also enhance the gaming experience with colourful light effects and a choice of different modes. And what’s really handy: the keyboard features a smartphone holder – so never again will gamers miss messages or calls.
