Corsair's latest peripheral is the successor to the popular Vengeance K60 keyboard and features Cherry MX switches, backlighting and onboard memory.
The Corsair Vengeance K70 mechanical keyboard is based on a brushed aluminum chassis that will be available in two color and backlighting variants: silver with blue lighting and anodized black with a red backlight. The keyboard is fully mechanical and features Cherry MX switches, a 100% anti-ghosted matrix, 20 key roller, and a 1,000 Hz reporting rate that are intended to deliver "fast, accurate input for gaming." For an additional level of customization, 10 additional contoured and colored keycaps are included that can replace the default numbers one through six and WASD keys on the keyboard.
Corsair also notes that each key features an individual backlight that allows the backlighting to be adjusted through both four distinct brightness levels as well as on a key-by-key basis. These settings can also be saved directly onto the K70's onboard memory, which will allow users to store their preferences without requiring proprietary software to be installed.
Also included are dedicated media keys, a USB connector, and a removable soft-touch wrist pad that is advertised to provide "comfort for long gaming or typing sessions."
The Corsair Vengeance K70 mechanical keyboard will be formally unveiled during PAX East from March 22 to March 24, 2013 and is expected to release in April 2013 with a retail price of $129.99. Further information is available on Corsair's website.
