G.Skill Announces RipJaws KM780R Series Gaming Keyboards

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, announces the release of RIPJAWS KM780R RGB and KM780R MX model mechanical gaming keyboards, an expansion of the best-selling KM780 series gaming keyboard. Featuring the same great build and design, the KM780R series is the redux of the original without the extra gaming keycaps, puller tool, and keycap box; and most importantly, at a lower price.

The KM780R models offer the same great features and designs of the original KM780 series keyboards: highly responsive and extremely durable Cherry MX key switches (rated for 50 million key-presses without losing the same mechanical feel), military-grade aluminum plate in a brushed black anodized finish, and the full suite of extra macro keys, onboard keyboard profiles, and media control keys with the digital LED volume display.

And of course, these new KM780R RGB and KM780R MX models will be available in Cherry MX red, brown, and blue flavors. See below for a brief comparison chart.

These new G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780R RGB and KM780R MX models are currently available on Amazon.com, and would be sold via G.SKILL authorized worldwide distribution partners at a later date. Both RIPJAWS KM780R RGB and KM780R MX are now available with a respective MSRP of $159.99 and $119.99 USD - $10 reduction from the original KM780 models.

I got my Logitech Orion G910 with best ever switches for 90$ in the last Black Friday and I am totally happy with it. and about the keycaps it's not that much of bother.

Thing is the G910 is horrid to type on, although be nice to see logitech doing more keyboards without the heavy indents with their switches..


Fail for me not fully programmable.

Corsair's Strafe RGB with the super-rare Cherry MX Silent switch has more bang for your buck than this board... IMO

There are no media/programmable/macro keys on Strafe. This is more like a K95 competitor. And tbh O-ring dampeners aren't that expensive.

Yeah did not see any thing special about it my self, sure it looks good but lacks in a few other area's and it's as expensive with less features.
