G.Skill Adds Cherry MX Speed Silver Switches to its KM570 Keyboard Lineup

Ever-increasing its offerings within the KM570 and KM870 lineup of mechanical keyboards, G.Skill has recently put up a product page for yet another iteration of their KM570 keyboard: the Cherry MX Speed Silver equipped KM570, which joins the companies' offerings of Blue, Red and Brown Cherry MX switches.

The Cherry MX Speed Silver switches feature a shorter - and therefore faster - 1.2mm (as opposed to the more common 2mm) actuation distance with a light 45G switch weight. Constructed with a 50 million keystroke durability and a smooth linear key response as well as contoured keypads for greater comfort, the KM570's other features include macro support with on-the-fly macro recording, per-key lighting customization with seven lighting patterns, full n-Key rollover and 100% anti-ghosting technologies, as well as shortcuts for Windows functions, keyboard functions, media playback and volume control.

The RIPJAWS KM570 MX with Speed Silver switches comes in at $109.99, $10 more than the companies' Red, Blue and Brown offerings, and $10 less than the equivalent offerings with RGB lighting capabilities.

Contoured keycaps, Silver swithces, FFS they are MILKING this keyboard thing for every last drop!! Is this REALLY necessary? Am I the only one who just wants a properly SILENT switch (MX Silent doesn't count, because that name is a lie) that doesn't sound like I'm banging on plastic all day?! I really don't think I'm asking for much. Wireless would also be nice.
