GeIL Shows Off 109-button Mechanical Keyboard at Computex

Computex Taipei runs at the same time as E3 but both companies had a healthy dose of peripherals despite being on opposite sides of the world. Taiwanese company GeIL stayed close to home and opted to showcase its wares at Computex. This included the EpicGear Dezimator, a mechanical USB keyboard with 109 buttons. Available in brown or red, the brown has two-stage actuation buttons with an actuation distance of 2mm and actuation force. The red model has a single state actuation, an actuation distance of 2mm and 45g of actuation force. It supports 10 customizable profiles through five macro programmable buttons. The device is made of 70 percent aluminum, and has an Alcantara cover to protect against dust.

 

Also on show was the company's Scorpion pass-through cable for mice. Weighing in at 150g, the arm is composed of three different parts, the first more solid, the second a little more flexible but of medium strength and the third very flexible. We found the base to be stable and solid. 

 

Of course, being a memory company, GeIL also had some memory on show. The company shows us two new series, the Veloce and Leggere. The former boasts two colors (red and white) for the heatspreader with white indicating best performance. The Veloce line includes memory from 1866 MHz CAS 9 to 2900 MHz CAS 11. Leggera, on the other hand, is a value-orientated line with models from 1866 MHz to 2666 MHz. Both will be available in kits ranging from 4 to 64 GB when they launch in Q3.

 

The Scorpion is priced at $24.99 and the Dezimator keyboard will carry a price of $139 when it's launched this October.

    who would spend that much for a mouse cable holder?

    I can understand it costing at most $5.

    $25 is just insane

    Yea your $10 dollar keyboard and this are nothing alike. This one has mechanical keys which means more can be pressed at the same time without them not doing anything. Yours though would probably choke with more than 2 or 3 keys pressed at once.

    This iis like the Corsair K60/90 series of keyboards. If you truly game, those are some of the nicest ones.

    About those images; Am I the only one having problem viewing the hi-res version of them (you know, click, new window, click again), or are the links bad? This is the second time now I'm having problem accessing the hi-res images from the trade show reports...

    And please Tom's; Could you make the hi-res images show on the first link instead...?

  • Once you go mech, you never go back. Now Logitech gaming keyboards are expensive. They use rubber dome, yet cost as much, or even more than some mechanical keyboards.

    ... I think I like the style of the white ram modules... that would be sweet inside one of the white cases I am considering... but sadly reality only allows so much money to be reserved for vanity lol.
