MSI is adding to its growing lineup of peripherals this week with the launch of the Vigor GK50 low profile mechanical gaming keyboard. We got our first look at this keyboard all the way back at Computex 2018, around the time the first Cherry MX low profile mechanical keyboards started hitting the market. The big difference with MSI’s keyboard is the use of Kailh low profile white switches.
The MSI Vigor GK50 is built with an aluminium top plate, so it should rival the build quality of other high-end mechanical game keyboards. As you would expect, MSI’s Mystic Light RGB lighting system is also baked in, with per-key RGB backlighting and customisation options. All of this is handled via the MSI Dragon Center software, which also works with other MSI peripherals and hardware.
With the Kailh low profile white switches, you get tactile feedback and an audible click, so it is a low travel equivalent of blue switches, with 34mm of travel. The low travel means you get a lower actuation point for quicker key presses and response times. The underside of the keyboard has a cable routing channel, so you can tidy up your peripheral cables to keep your desk tidy.
The MSI Vigor GK50 low profile mechanical gaming keyboard will be available starting this week. Over in the US, the MSRP is listed at $89.99, here in the UK, it will be sold for £89.99.
