Cougar today introduced the Vantar AX, a unique gaming keyboard that should please those who also use their PC for extended typing/coding sessions. The keyboard uses scissor-type switches that can be found in premium notebooks. Another selling point is its height of just 15 mm (including keycaps), compared to most keyboards that can be over 35 mm tall. The Vantar AX offers a full 106-keyset with flat, translucent keycaps that have zonal RGB backlighting. The electronics support 19-key rollover and anti-ghosting. It all comes together in a matte-silver, CNC-milled, aluminium unibody resembling MacBooks. The Cougar Vantar AX measures 445 mm x 127 mm x 15 mm (WxDxH), weighing about 626 g. The company didn't reveal pricing.
