Thermaltake's Constellation of Gaming Peripherals with RGB Glitz at CES

At the 2020 International CES, Thermaltake unveiled a plethora of new gaming peripherals that include keyboards, mice, surfaces, and headsets. The star attractions here were the TK5 RGB keyboard and mouse. The keyboard has a dual-tone face-plate design that looks refreshingly new. You get a detachable cushioned palm-rest. The face-plate around the main key cluster and function keys are silvery aluminium, while one surrounding the numerical cluster, arrow and editing keys is contrasting dark aluminium. The TK5 uses a floating keycap design, with RGB LED element of each individual key producing a glow around the key. There's an acrylic RGB LED diffuser that runs along the periphery of the keyboard, too. Thermaltake is using Cherry MX Blue or MX Speed Silver switches.

The TM5 mouse is wireless, but can also be used as a wired mouse. As a wireless mouse, it supports 2.4 GHz RF (needs a dongle, but provides 10 m range and lower latency) and Bluetooth 5.0 (no dongle needed). The mouse features a palm-grip optimized ambidextrous design with 8 buttons in total. RGB LED embellishments include the scroll-wheel and an RGB element that runs along the periphery of the underside of the mouse. Under the hood is a 16,000 dpi PixArt PMW3335 sensor and Omron-made switches.

The mouse would go well with the new M1 RGB mouse bungee (if you're using it wired), and MP1 RGB mouse-pad, which features a speed/control balanced synthetic surface, and an RGB element running its periphery. The Riing Pro RGB 7.1 headset is Thermaltake's new premium offering: this USB pair of cans packs ESS ES9018 USB DAC and ESS Sabre ES9601K amplifier. This hardware is wired to 50 mm drivers, and there are just two of them - that's right, this is a stereo headset with 7.1 being a virtual DSP. The cans feature RGB LED elements.
