Corsair Announces Retail Availability of New Vengeance Gaming Keyboards and Mice

Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced immediate retail availability of their new line of Vengeance PC gaming peripherals.

Corsair's new PC gaming peripherals line includes four new HID products: The Vengeance K60 and Vengeance K90 gaming keyboards and the Vengeance M60 and Vengeance M90 laser gaming mice. A key feature of all four of these new Vengeance Series products is the use of an aluminum structure to provide strength and durability, as well as a stunning industrial design.

"We're hardcore gamers ourselves, and with the new Corsair Vengeance line, we've developed precisely the products we always wanted." said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager of the Components Business Unit at Corsair. "They're carefully designed to give you the competitive edge you need to win."

Vengeance K60 and M60: Designed For First-Person Shooters
The Vengeance K60 gaming keyboard and the Vengeance M60 laser gaming mouse are designed for PC Gamers who specialize in First-Person Shooters (FPS). The Vengeance K60 keyboard features the predictable linear response and light touch of Cherry MX Red mechanical key switches for more agile movement and faster multi-taps. The contoured left-wrist rest plus shaped and textured WASD key caps increase comfort, even during extended gaming sessions. The K60 uses an advanced key matrix design that delivers complete anti-ghosting so no keystrokes are missed. Unlike other USB gaming keyboards that are limited to the USB-standard 6-key rollover, the K60 features a 20-key rollover and a blazing fast 1ms reporting rate (1000 reports per second).

The Vengeance M60 mouse features an enthusiast-grade 5700 DPI Avago Technologies LaserStream gaming sensor with on-the-fly resolution switching, an aluminum unibody design with adjustable center of gravity, programmable lift detection, a high-mass scroll wheel, and PTFE glide pads. A key innovation of the M60 mouse is the Sniper button, allowing an instant toggle from fast movement, high DPI-resolution mode down to a high-precision mode for more accurate aiming.

Vengeance K90 and Vengeance M90: Designed For MMO and RTS Gaming
The Vengeance K90 gaming keyboard and M90 laser gaming mouse are optimized to meet the unique needs of MMO and RTS gaming. The Vengeance K90 keyboard also features Cherry MX Red key switches, full anti-ghosting, 20-key rollover, 1ms reporting rate, and each key is individually backlit with a cool blue LED that can be adjusted to three different levels of intensity. The K90 also includes 18 dedicated macro keys that can be programmed either through software or on the fly, and with three user-selectable banks of macros you have a total of 54 independent macros available at any time. Your macros are stored in flash memory on the keyboard so you’ll be able to bring them with you wherever your gaming takes you.

The Vengeance M90 gaming mouse features 15 fully programmable buttons, arranged and tuned for intuitive operation without compromising your grip, and on-board flash memory lets you save your macros in up to six profiles that can be switched on-the-fly. The Avago Technologies 5700 DPI LaserStream gaming sensor allows on-the-fly resolution adjustment and the programmable lift detection, high-mass scroll wheel, and PTFE glide pads ensure swift, precise movement. The intuitive Windows-based Vengeance software utility lets you manage your macro keys, on-board profiles, and sensor settings so you can customize your M90 to exactly match your gaming style.

Pricing and Availability
The Vengeance K90 gaming keyboard has an MSRP in the United States of $129 and the K60 has an MSRP of $109. The Vengeance M90 gaming mouse has an MSRP of $79 and the M60 has an MSRP of $69.

The full range of Vengeance gaming peripherals is available from authorized Corsair retailers and e-tailers worldwide. For more information, visit this page.

My bad... It seems the same ADNS-9500 as in G9X I suppose...

The K90 looks a lot like the Logitech G series keyboards with the macro keys. Rebrands? Not that there's anything wrong with that, as I love my Logitech G15 (original) and the styling on the K90 is nice...

However, the Cherry MX keys are probably a nice upgrade added by Corsair.

I would pick up either of these keyboards good to see more options especially Cherry Reds.

Similar layout but aluminum chassis and the fact that it has mechanical switches means it's definitely not a rebrand.

Still rocking my original G15 but that K60 is a nice looking keyboard I must say. I especially like the wrist wrest. Too bad it doesn't have a backlight.

Then get the K90, it has backlight, even though its completely useless if you can touch type.

I know right!?!

Its so weird not a single company that makes PC peripherals has stood up and made a standalone usb power LCD screen like Logitech has on its keyboards.
I think it would sell like hot cakes.

First ask your girlfriends, if there are plans to buy a mechanical keyboard. Dudes, they are LOUD! :D Those Corsair-ones are definitely worth a look.

K60 supposedly has rubber-domes under Esc, F1-F12, Ins, Home, Del, End and Page Up/Page Down instead of Cherry reds. Not sure about the K90.

Actually, the mechanical keyboards aren't the loud part. Typically the people bottoming out keys that makes the most noise. Red switches are non tactile, non clicky, and require very little pressure to actuate.

That was announcing them, this is announcing the retail availability, as it states in the headline.

Just order the K90 from amazon. My first venture into mechanical keyboard. I was going to get the Deck Legend but given it's more expensive and has MX-black switches instead of MX-red, I held out for the Corsair. The hybrid mechanical part hopefully will not bother me much as I don't use the macro keys.

Those corsair mice have been on newegg for some time now, not for order, but you could view their specs, and see the release date. I've been eyeballing the one with the big red button on the side for quite some time.

What is there to say about the integrated Avago ADNS-9500 LaserStream in the mouse? Cheap upscaler-unit or proven to be a good one for gamers?
