CORSAIR has just revealed its newest addition to the mechanical gaming keyboard lineup, the K70 RGB MK.2 LOW PROFILE and K70 RGB MK.2 LOW PROFILE RAPIDFIRE. The new keyboards feature CHERRY MX Low Profile RGB switches which are exclusive to CORSAIR keyboards right now. These switches combined with the new low profile keycaps aim to facilitate a comfortable typing and gaming experience while maintaining the precision a mechanical keyboard brings.

The new switches resemble the topre switch we saw in the Coolermaster Novatouch. The Speed variant has an ultra-fast actuation distance of 1.00mm while the Red switch has an actuation of 1.2mm. The redesigned key switch and keycaps combined are focused on providing a comfortable typing experience for the user for extended hours of use and gaming without any compromise on performance.

The rest of the keyboard is the same as the award-winning K70 MK.2 that the mechanical keyboard fraternity has grown to love and hail as truly one of the best-built keyboards out there in the market. It features the same brushed aluminium finish and the dedicated media keys with the textured volume control scroll wheel and extra USB passthrough.
