Logitech G Lets You Play Your Way With a New Lineup of Vibrant Gaming Gear

Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, and leading innovator of gaming technologies and gear, today introduced a new collection of gaming gear that celebrates self expression and the fun side of gaming. The centerpiece of the new Logitech G-Series Color Collection is the G733 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Headset. Featuring four vibrant colors, the new G733 gaming headset is a full featured, wireless headset that fits with your style and helps make your gaming experience more reflective of your world. Rounding out the Color Collection is the G203 and G305 Gaming Mice and G915 TKL Gaming Keyboard.

"As gaming becomes a bigger part of pop culture, personal expression and style have become a huge part of a gamers' identity," said Ujesh Desai, general manager of Logitech G. "With that in mind we set out to design a collection of high-performance gaming gear in a fun and colorful way." From gaming accessories to product packaging, grey, white and black colors have historically dominated the gaming industry, but as gaming expands to meet the needs of more diverse consumers, personal expression through this community is shifting. Through social media, the advent of user generated content (UGC) and the rapid rise in streaming, content creators' gear and gaming rooms are increasingly on display, encouraging these gamers to put more thought into the colors they use and what it conveys about their individual style and personality. Investing in one's surrounding environment to reflect inner expressions lends to a more immersive gaming experience and Logitech G's new Color Collection will amplify that.

The keyboard features RGB exposed backlit keys for brighter illumination with radiant lighting effects and five adjustable brightness levels to enhance gaming, day or night.

ASUS Outs ROG Strix Scope TKL Deluxe Keyboard

ASUS today rolled out the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix Scope TKL Deluxe gaming keyboard. This tenkeyless keyboard is roughly 60% the volume of a full-size keyboard, and has 84 keys. The keyboard features a detachable cushioned palm-rest with faux-leather upholstery. This palm-rest snaps into place with magnetic locks, much like an iPad Smart Cover. The top-plate of the keyboard is made of brushed aluminium. The keycaps are raised above the top-plate.

Function keys F5 to F12 are macroed out, and in their place, ASUS put media control buttons as the primary function. You don't need to hold down any key to switch between the media keys and the Function keys, a 2-way switch does that. The "Stealth Key" is a glorified boss key that hides all your apps and mutes audio for instant privacy. Under the hood, the ROG Strix Scope TKL has Cherry MX RGB mechanical switches, and comes in a variety of flavors such as MX Speed Silver, MX Red, MX Brown, and MX Blue. The electronics provide N-key rollover and anti-ghosting. ASUS Aura Sync RGB handles the keyboard's lighting including color configuration for individual keys. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Kinesis Gaming Rolls Out the Freestyle Edge RGB Split Mechanical Keyboard

Kinesis Gaming is a new entrant in the ergonomic gaming hardware market, and launched the first of its two debut products, the Freestyle Edge RGB split mechanical keyboard (the other being the Vektor mouse). The keyboard features a tenkeyless layout that's split vertically along the middle, with a 6-inch cable connecting the two halves. An internal compartment located at the top lets you wind in excess cable. This split allows you to angle the two halves apart to better align with your hands, and minimize strain on your wrists. Adding to the ergonomics of the Freestyle Edge RGB are its soft-touch wrist-rests.

It may be a TKL keyboard, but the Freestyle Edge RGB comes with 10 macro keys along the edge of the left half. You can remap every other key and build macros of your own with the included software. There are 99 keys and buttons on this keyboard. Its electronics offers full NKRO and a Game Mode, with 1 ms response time, and 100% anti-ghosting. An onboard 4 MB memory stores your macro- and lighting-profiles locally. The keyboard offers full RGB LED lighting across a 16.8 million-color palette, and lets you configure lighting and profiles via software. Among the mechanical switch options are Cherry MX Red, MX Blue, and MX Brown. All three variants are priced at USD $219.99.

Ducky Brings a Flock of New Mechanical Keyboards to Computex

Ducky Channel is one of the oldest mechanical keyboard OEMs and whitebox manufacturers in Taiwan, and brought a vast selection of new mechanical keyboards to Computex 2019, with a focus on space-saving TKL (tenkeyless) and sub-TKL form-factors without compromising on the size of the keycaps. A running design theme at the Ducky booth has been a fusion of the Chinese Year of the Pig in a rendition by Formosan artists (indigenous people of the island of Taiwan). We begin our tour with the Shine, a lineup of full-size 108-key units that now come in the new Gunmetal Grey color option. These keyboards feature a zinc-alloy top, with PBT double-shot seamless keycaps, and another in hot-rod red+black color scheme. You can have the Shine in a number of Cherry MX switch options. The 2019 edition also comes with USB type-C cabling in addition to type-A.

Walkthrough of the Leopold Booth at Computex 2019

Leopold is a boutique keyboard manufacturer based out of Korea, and one we have not yet had the pleasure of covering in detail on TechPowerUp. That is about to change, however, as we were invited to meet representatives of the company and go through their products at their Computex booth. I have been familiar with their existing lineup to an extent, noting that they use both Cherry MX and Topre switches in their keyboards designed for the high end market. The FC660 especially is quite popular among keyboard enthusiasts wanting a small form factor keyboard for ergonomics, and Leopold showed off their new version of an electrostatic capacitive switch based on the Topre switch.

The new switch finds its way in the equally new FC660PT keyboard, with the primary design change being the location of the spring relative to the switch housing and rubber dome that gave Topre switches the unique tactile feedback which people either loved or did not. The new design attempts to appease users who long since have wanted compatibility with Cherrry MX stem keycaps, which account for the vast majority of aftermarket keycap sets. The spring is thus right on top, and makes for an interesting two-step feedback mechanism seen in the force-travel diagram below, which may well be just as divisive as the Topre switch itself. Noting that the springs may work loose and possibly be lost, Leopold tells us they plan to also include an extra set of springs with the keyboard as well. The rest of the keyboard is unchanged, and that by itself is a good thing in my books given it is hard to improve on the build quality provided by the thick metal case paired with the 1.5 mm thick PBT keycaps with dye-sub legends. Read past the break for more Leopold offerings at the show floor!

Cooler Master Releases New Tenkeyless Keyboards

Spire Intros Ergo, the First Tenkeyless Ergonomic Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Spire late Monday introduced Ergo, a wacky new gaming-grade mechanical keyboard that's the world's first TKL (tenkeyless) to feature a custom ergonomic key layout that reduces strain during prolonged typing sessions. The keyboard smartly splits the QWERTY keyset into two halves that are angled, and places certain vital keys along the gap in the middle. The spacebar, too, is split to fall right under your thumbs. Spire has taken the creative liberty to move quite a few important keys around from where you'd expect them, so there could be a short learning curve to get using this keyboard right. The keyboard offers RGB LED illuminated keycaps, backed by an unknown flavor of Cherry MX mechanical switches. Available now, the Spire Ergo is priced at USD $99.95 (excluding taxes), an optional wrist-rest ships for $30 more.

Tesoro Gram TKL Keyboard Pictured, Too

At its CES presentation, Tesoro also showed off its new Gram TKL keyboard. This is a tenkeyless (TKL) variant of the original Gram Spectrum (and not the newer Gram SE Spectrum). A tenkeyless keyboard lacks the NUM pad. The lack of the NUM pad shaves a good 12 cm from its width. Like the Gram Spectrum, it features Tesoro's in-house Agile mechanical switches (in red or white flavors), with 3.5 mm key travel, and 1.5 mm actuation, and 16.7 million-color RGB LED illumination. The rest of its feature-set is identical to that of the Gram Spectrum. Tesoro plans to launch the Gram TKL some time in the first half of 2018, but has not decided upon its pricing, yet. There's also the possibility of a white (body color) variant.

For those looking for a more visually attractive feel, 20 preset backlight effects will create a wonderful gaming atmosphere.
