G.SKILL is expanding its mechanical keyboard lineup with the announcement of the RIPJAWS KM570 RGB mechanical gaming keyboard. The keyboard features genuine Cherry MX RGB keyswitches, which are rated for up to 50 million keystrokes with the same keystroke feel and an even longer durability.
The new KM570 RGB series will be offered in classic choices of Cherry MX switches in linear Red, clicky Blue, and tactile Brown. Each of the Cherry MX switches come tuned to a precise 2mm actuation point, giving users a satisfying experience when gaming as well as when typing. As you would expect from a mechanical gaming keyboard, the KM570 RGB offers various customization options such as multiple lighting effects, customizable lighting zones in full 16.8 million colors, on-the-fly macro recording system, and more.
The KM570 RGB runs on a 32-bit ARM processor, which has been paired with a 1000 Hz polling rate, full n-key rollover and 100% anti-ghosting matrix, creating a platform that allows multiple keys to register with precise timing and swift response. It also features independent volume controls with full media playback control via function hotkeys, similar to the company’s KM570 MX keyboard.
As of now, G.SKILL has only announced availability info for the US market, where it will be going on sale from early December via Newegg in keyswitches of Cherry MX RGB RED and Brown. The Cherry MX RGB Blue version is expected to become available in January 2017. Pricing info has not been disclosed just yet.
