G.Skill announces two new gaming mechanical keyboards under its G.Skill’s Ripjaws line, with Cherry MX Red, Blue and Brown switches.
First, one is the Ripjaws KM570 MX, which G.Skill describes as the “ideal option for anyone who’s looking for their first Cherry MX keyboard.” The KM570 MX sports Cherry MX key switches in red, blue or brown with full N-key rollover anti-ghosting, Windows key lock, and a polling rate of 1000Hz. The KM570 MX has hardware based lighting customization and macros within the keyboard’s storage, so no software is needed. The lighting includes seven different lighting effect presets and allows users to customize effects for each key.
The second keyboard is the Ripjaws KM770 RGB MX, which is similar to G.Skill’s popular KM780 RGB, with similar features like a brushed aluminum top plate construction, RGB lighting with Cherry MX Red, Blue or Brown switches. The KM770 RGB also has underneath channel for tidy cable management.
Both the Ripjaws KM770 RGB and KM570 MX keyboard will be available in Q3 2016; no pricing has been announced.
