At PAX East 2013, Corsair was proud to address some concerns of its customers about their Vengeance lineup. The original K Series keyboards were not 100% mechanical, but the new gaming keyboard from Corsair released this year will be. The new Vengeance K70 Fully Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

The K70 maintains all the great features of the previous Vengeance Keyboards such as 1000 Hz polling rate, 20-key rollover, and anti-ghosting technology. It also brings some new features such as 100% mechanical keys (Cherry MX Red), individually backlit keys, and dedicated media controls.

The new Vengeance K70 has everything you could want from a quality mechanical keyboard and more at a great price of $129.99. I can't want to get my hands on it. Can you?

Corsair Announces Vengeance K70 Fully Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Key-by-Key Backlighting

Corsair Vengeance K70 Fully Mechanical Gaming Keyboard to Debut at PAX East on March 22

March 21, 2013 Corsair, a worldwide designer of high-performance PC gaming peripherals, today announced the Vengeance K70 fully mechanical gaming keyboard.

The new Vengeance K70 gaming keyboard is built on a rugged, brushed, aluminum chassis and features highly responsive Cherry MX Red mechanical switches under every key. The high performance switches combined with the keyboard's 100% anti-ghosted matrix, 20-key rollover and 1000 Hz reporting rate provide fast, accurate input for gaming.

The Vengeance K70 gaming keyboards are available in two color schemes: silver aluminum with blue backlighting, and anodized black with deep red backlighting. Overall backlighting can be adjusted to four levels of intensity and each key is individually backlit, enabling the lighting for each key to be independently enabled or disabled. The key-by-key lighting customization allows users to highlight just the keys they need to emphasize and then save the setting directly to the K70's onboard memory. In addition, the Vengeance K70 comes with alternate colored, contoured keycaps for the WASD and 1-6 keycaps to allow additional customization.

"When we launched the Vengeance K60, customers loved the look and quality, but some wanted a backlit version," said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager of the Peripherals Business Unit at Corsair. "In typical Corsair fashion, we over-delivered and created Vengeance K70 with key-by-key backlighting, mechanical switches on every key, and two color schemes."

The Vengeance K70 also features dedicated multimedia controls to allow users to play, stop, pause, skip tracks and adjust volume. An extra USB connector is provided for attaching to USB devices such as a Vengeance gaming mouse or headset. A removable soft-touch wrist rest provides comfort for long gaming or typing sessions.

See Vengeance K70 at PAX East from March 22-24

The Vengeance K70 keyboard will make its public debut at Corsair's booth at PAX East in Boston from March 22-24. Corsair is located in booth 1062.

Pricing and Availability

The Corsair Vengeance K70 will be available in April at suggested price of $129.99.
