Tesoro Technology USA Inc., a manufacturer of high-tech gaming products, today unveils the Tesoro Excalibur RGB LED backlit mechanical keyboard with a 16.8 million color palette. Named after the legendary sword of King Arthur, Tesoro Excalibur RGB lets gamers choose virtually any backlight color, 16.8 million. The Excalibur RGB's illumination can be set to breathing mode, color loop mode and 2 gaming modes, where only gaming keys are illuminated. Additionally, there are 4 levels of LED backlighting with dimming capability.

The Excalibur RGB offers gamers the power of Full N-Key Rollover (NKRO) for full anti-ghosting functionality or USB 6 N-Key Rollover. Depending on the requirements, users can press any and all keys at the same time without worrying some key may not be registered. A fast 1000Hz polling rate helps makes sure no keystroke is missed, and with instant game mode switching, users don't have to worry about accidental key presses taking them away from the action.



With 512 KB of onboard memory, the Excalibur RGB allows gamers to instantly record sophisticated macros without need of external software. A user-friendly GUI allows for advanced macro settings. Personalized settings are stored in the built-in-memory allowing the keyboard to be fully synchronized for better performance and even during tournaments, where it is prohibited to install external software. Additionally, every single key is fully programmable, allowing for 5 sets of profiles, 300 macro keys and 2000 macro key presses per profile.

The gaming grade mechanical switches are engineered for 60 million key strokes, and an anti-slip rubberized foot design keeps the keyboard in place during the most intense gaming.

The Tesoro Excalibur RGB mechanical keyboard will be available in December via Tesoro Gaming USA, Newegg, Amazon, NCIX for the suggested retail price of US$119.00.

Lol gaming keyboards. Mouse, I understand. But blinging out on the already flawed input device for gaming is silly. Wasd? How about get on par with analog sticks for movement.

I prefer KB over analog when it comes to movement even in racing games

This is a mechanical gaming keyboard not to be confused with a rubber dome gaming keyboard. Big difference.

Joystick would delay you compared to using keys and a joystick only moves you what about other controls like walk dash prone stand knee and so many more.

Mech keyboards are typically much more comfortable to use.

Wasd have minute deadzone compared to an analog stick, go crawl back into your cave and play your console.

I missed that before. That's a shame that you can only have one color at a time.

If joystick is what you're used to then go with it but in FPS and RTS games the mouse and keyboard are superior. The only time I use a controller is in games that have a lot of driving if it's supported.

Yup, mechs are way shittier.

I've tried blue and red switches and my god do they suck ass.

I like to press keys to the bottom and all of the mechs are stupidly high profile - low profile membrane keyboards FTW
