MSI's GeForce GTX 1060 Armor OC is a custom GTX 1060 variant that's optimized to not break the bank while still offering features like idle-fan-stop, low noise, and good temperatures. The card uses the exact same PCB as the more expensive Gaming X, at lower clocks, though.

The Tesoro Gram Spectrum RGB keyboard is a new take on an old design. It has the now expected full RGB backlighting, software driver support and programmable/macro features for keyboards but does so while using low profile keycaps and a new Cherry MX switch clone- the Agile switches- with shorter actuation and bottoming out distances intended for faster response times.

Ergonomics, customization, open source, split keyboard. Those are probably the four terms I would use to introduce the ErgoDox EZ Shine: a pre-assembled split keyboard built on a proven concept but with added tweaks to make this your keyboard, not what someone else designed for you.

The Vortex CORE is a keyboard that takes up less than half the space as an average full size keyboard. It does this by having just 47 keys in what is referred to as a 40% keyboard layout. With no dedicated arrows, number keys and function keys, it still manages to be an extremely functional keyboard.
