ROCCAT Introduces its New Vulcan Keyboard With In-House Titan Switch Tactile at COMPUTEX

After their tease earlier this week, ROCCAT have formally introduced their Vulcan keyboard, the first keyboard solution fully developed in-house: from component selection, to keyboard design, all the way to the very switches that power users' inputs. ROCCAT says its development led to the Titan Switch tactile product that now sees the light of day on the Vulcan keyboard - and helps light users' days with its RGB lighting.

According to the company, ROCCAT "debounced the switch by reducing the mechanical shattering during actuation thanks to high quality materials and componentry. This allows the firmware to reliably identify key stroke signals 20% faster than competing keyboards." We couldn't test that particular claim, but we did get some "camera-on" time with the new Keyboard at COMPUTEX.
The top plate is made of anodized aluminum; the wrist rest is of the removable type for users that give particular attention to desk space. There are "professional grade multimedia controls", which includes a knob for volume control. While the product will be available in all relevant channels late Q3, it is already available for pre-order on Amazon, and on the ROCCAT shop. The Vulcan will be available in three different models, the Vulcan 80 at 129,99 (sans wrist-rest and solely with blue lighting), the Vulcan 100 AIMO at 149,99 (full RGB lighting, sans wrist-rest) and the Vulcan 120 AIMO, which does include the wrist-rest, at 159,99 (Euros / US Dollars).

I like it personally, how ever i would never own one simply due to dust getting on top of the actual switch.

This keyboard looks good. I like the added controls, but still kept minimal. Even though I am generally against RGB, it is fine in this case since lighting is actually practical to me for a keyboard since I game a lot at night. The only question in my mind is how the keys perform and feel.

That may be true, but it should also be much easier to clean since it doesn't seem necessary to remove the keycaps.

Dust will get under the cap to the part that moves and dust will fall in. Depends on were you live too and if you like your windows open or closed and run a aircon.

Like this time of year it's terrible, due to the river we live close to and all so the stream and being in a high flood area just adds to it, never mind the part of living in a valley which just adds to the problem.

Maybe if i had a air compressor would surly be interested then, although nothing what some Deoxit cannot solve if keys do start to fail to press.

KInda feel the same way, how ever more bothersome to me is the none indented caps lock, which sadly goes for most company's today.

That "crappy" L shaped key is for European keyboards. Maybe you're not aware of the fact that different countries have different keyboard layouts? Also, it's vastly superior to the "crappy" american layout.
