Thermaltake is readying a new variant of its Meka G mechanical gaming keyboard under the Tt eSports banner. Called the Tt eSports Meka G Unit, the new keyboard, according to the company, will be the first mechanical keyboard with onboard memory and individual key illumination and key map-based illumination (only those keys that a game is bound to will be illuminated, which can quickly switch to all-illuminated when text-chatting in-game). The keyboard switches between "Game Mode", in which accidental keystrokes are minimized, and normal mode. The ISS (Instant Shift System) advanced macro key shifting function allows Gamer to reach all 60 macro keys within one profile. The Meka G Unit uses Cherry Black switches that provide good tactile feedback without the "clickity" noise. As a mechanical keyboard, the Meka has a longer key lifespan than common membrane-type keyboards, with the switches supporting 50 million keystrokes each. Apart from macro keys, there are 7 multimedia keys, a USB hub with two USB 2.0 ports, and two audio ports (extended from the PC sound card). The cables are 1.8 m long, are braided, and with gold-plated connectors. Thermaltake plans to release its new keyboard at Computex.
