SteelSeries announced the Apex M800 mechanical gaming keyboard, which the hardware manufacturer is touting as the world’s fastest, most customizable mechanical gaming keyboard.
The keyboard’s mechanical switches have a low-profile design that allows for quick strikes and less wasted movement. The switches deliver 25 percent faster actuation than standard mechanical keyboards. The keyboard’s N-key rollover ensures that every key press is registered.
Each key feaures surface-mounted LED, and users have a choice of 16.8 million colors. Users will be able to design lighting effects based on profile and preferences. The keyboard will also have in-game integration with select games, allowing game developers to preset layouts and color changes based on in-game events.
Individual keys are programmable to any keyboard key, mouse button, media control, application or macro. Users will also be able to record macros with the press of a button or use text-based macros. Keys can easily be remapped using a single button.
The gaming keyboard is equipped with two powered USB ports.
No release date has been announced for the Apex M800. The keyboard will be priced at $199.99.
