New Corsair K50, K65, and K70 keyboards

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just announced at Computex...



Corsair Vengeance K70

Earlier this year, Corsair released a new K70 mechanical gaming keyboard using Cherry MX Red switches to complement its existing K60 and K90 keyboards (which Scott reviewed last year). At Computex, Corsair announced two new models that use different Cherry MX switches. Instead of the reds, the new models will use either Cherry MX Brown or Cherry MX Blue switches.

The K70 features a gun-metal anodized aluminum case with adjustable blue backlighting on a key-by-key basis. The keyboard features an anti-ghosting matrix with full key rollover and a 1000Hz polling rate. It will be available for purchase in July with a MSRP of $129.99.



Corsair Vengeance K65

The Vengeance K65 is a new, more compact, mechanical keyboard that utilizes Cherry MX Red switches. It has a full-size key layout, but the palm rest and extra horizontal space has been cut down to enable the K65 to fit on smaller desks. It retains the anti-ghosting, full key rollover and 1000Hz polling rate of the K70 mechanical keyboard along with a brushed metal aesthetic.

This mechanical gaming keyboard will be available in July for $89.99.



Corsair Raptor K50

Whie Corsair's previous keyboard products ahve been mechanical in nature, the new Raptor K50 uses membrane keys rather than the more expensive mechanical variety. In keeping with the gaming nature, the Raptor K50 features 18 programmable keys with 3 banks allowing for up to 54 total macros. It also has a Windows lock key that prevents accidental presses of the Windows key from interrupting your game session as well as six multimedia playback control keys.

Additionally, the Raptor K50 has customizable backlighting that can be adjusted to any number of RGB colors. It supports full key rollover and will be for sale starting in July for $99.99.

Hopefully Corsair releases a K65 with Browns or Blues. I would buy that in an instant.

The K65 does look appealing, if they cared to use a full mechanical layout this time and offer tactile keys it may be a win... I hope it feels less fragile than it looks.
