Corsair launches new K70 RGB TKL keyboard with optical-mechanical switches

Corsair is expanding its optical-mechanical keyboard range this week. Up to this point, only the K100 has been available with these switches, but now, you'll be able to get these switches in a smaller footprint thanks to the new K70 TKL. 

The new Corsair K70 RGB TKL, like most optical-mechanical keyboards, is mainly aimed at gamers. That's seen by its 1.0mm actuation distance, 8,000Hz polling rate (Corsair Axon Hyper-Processing), and the RGB galore. Still, a handful of features interest the average user, like the 150-million keystroke durability, the aluminium frame, and the double-shot PBT keycaps. Moreover, it also features a tenkeyless profile and a detachable USB Type-C cable for increased portability.

Like the original version, the new K70 RGB TKL has per-key RGB LEDs, allowing users to freely customise the effects to their liking via iCue software. You can save your profiles on your PC via the app, but the keyboard can save up to 50x profiles on the onboard storage. In addition, it features dedicated media keys and a solid aluminium volume roller on the top right corner of the frame.

A 2-year warranty backs the new model Corsair K70 RGB TKL. You can get the optical-mechanical version of the K70 RGB TKL in the US for $149.99. Other regions should come later.
