CORSAIR announced today the launch of a new flagship gaming keyboard The CORSAIR K100 RGB. It gives users a choice between Cherry MX Speed switches or the brand new CORSAIR OPX Optical-Mechanical Keyswitches. Using new CORSAIR AXON Hyper-Processing Technology the keyboard claims to make inputs four times faster than standard gaming keyboards. The new keyboard comes with a wide array of features focused on gaming and aesthetics.
RGB and Design
The K100 has 44 zones for RGB lighting, including a lit edge of the keyboard and iCUE control wheel. Speaking of iCUE, the K100 has full software support, allowing for in-depth customization and macro programming. All of these premium RGB elements are housed in a durable aluminium frame. Included also is detachable memory foam wrist rest. Keycaps for the K100 are precision-moulded PBT double-shots that further enhance the keyboard’s performance and overall user experience. The standard bottom row on the keyboard is also fully swappable.
Delivering performance unmatched by other keyboards, the K100 utilizes new technology that offers insane keypress speeds. AXON technology enables 4,000Hz hyper-polling and 4,000Hz key scanning, which registers key presses at up to four times faster than other gaming hardware. No matter which switch option you choose, AXON will ensure that all of your inputs are registered by your PC as fast as possible.
