Logitech has unveiled its G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard meant specifically for e-sports gamers and claims to offer faster keystroke processing, which as most of you might know, can prove to be crucial in competitive gaming. The keyboard has been priced by the company at $129 (roughly Rs. 8,600) and will be made available later this month.
According to Logitech, everything from the ergonomic shape, to the actuation force needed for clicking, to the overall weight of the mouse was the result of months of collaboration between Logitech’s design team and eSports athletes (professional gamers). However, the pros felt the need for an accompanying keyboard to match their playstyles as well, with the primary request being a tenkeyless model.
The Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard also features improved Keystroke Signal Processing (KSP), which the company says reduces response time by up to 10ms – giving users an edge over the competition. The Romer-G switches combined with the intelligent KSP give the switches a rating to withstand over 70 million keystrokes. To avoid ghosting, the company has given the keyboard a 26-key rollover.
The RGB-backlit keyboard is capable of letting users choose from 16.8 million colours, and users can also choose to customise each individual key light with company’s Logitech Gaming Software as well. The Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming keyboard offers users onboard memory as well where they can choose to store patterns for later use. The Romer-G switches feature one advantage over regular Cherry MX switches on this front as well – the RGB lighting can be integrated into switches themselves, giving a more even effect.
