Corsair, a worldwide designer of high-performance PC gaming peripherals, today announced next-generation additions to the premier Corsair Vengeance line of gaming keyboards, mice, and mouse mats. Also announced is an upcoming free software driver update for the Vengeance 2000 wireless gaming headset which adds Dolby Headphone 2.0 7.1-channel surround sound.

To create the Vengeance K95 keyboard, the Corsair design team started with the successful and award-winning K90 and added a never-before-seen level of precision, technology, and styling. The result is the Vengeance K95, the most advanced keyboard in the Vengeance gaming line. Now clad in a black anodized brushed aluminum chassis and equipped with luminous white LED lighting, the Vengeance K95 keyboard has been upgraded with Cherry MX Red key mechanical switches on every key including the function and macro keys. Each key is now individually backlit, enabling the keys to be independently enabled or disabled, and overall backlighting can be adjusted to four levels of intensity. The keyboard includes 18 dedicated macro keys that can be programmed via software or on-the-fly, and macros and lighting profiles can be stored in onboard flash memory. The Vengeance K95 also features full anti-ghosting, 20-key rollover, and a 1ms reporting rate.

I love the design and matte black color of the K95. Corsair really did this right. Plus, individual backlit keys and separate non-FN combo media keys?? Call me hooked. Too bad they don't have any Cherry MX Blue version because they design it as a "gaming" keyboard. :banghead:

Oh my, that is beautiful. I can finally start to recommend Corsair keyboards...I'm even tempted to get one myself.

It's a shame there's still only one switch to choose from though, and I wish they'd released a K35 (TK/TKL layout) and K65 as well.

First victim bro :) ?...

Yeah my friend feel same too, he just bought K90 couple month ago, maybe 3 months.

with black theme, K95 look more like a gaming keyboard I guess. :rockout:

I hope the price is same with K90 at first launch. :toast:

Corsair listened to people complaints about not using all mech keys.
Might buy it if they have the same one without macro keys.

Every key is mechanical in K95. Which makes all the key press uniform.

Oh and they made the programmable keys mechanical. No need to upgrade for me is that is the only difference.

I really like the design of that white mouse, yet another thing to add to my list of things to go see and do while at CES!

FULL MECHANICAL! It's about time, Corsair. Can't believe they decided to make a "mechanical keyboard" with nice design and features, yet somehow cheaped out function and macro keys.

I wonder if they'll also do such an upgrade for the more compact (read: no macro key bank) K60. The more cynical part of me says that Corsair will eventually add colour-changing LEDs the next refresh when K95 sales slow down. They may even have a PS/2 option queued not far behind (though I doubt it; may be a bit out of Corsair's target market).
