Corsair Unleashes the Raptor Gaming Keyboard and Gaming Mouse
Following the announcement of Corsair and Cherry partnering to debut MX RGB switches at CES 2014, the former has introduced the Raptor K40 16.8M Color Backlit Gaming Keyboard, as well as the Raptor M45 5000 DPI Optical Mouse.
Raptor K40 Gaming Keyboard with RGB Backlighting
With a comfortable membrane key feel, the K40 features onboard macro storage, 100% anti-ghosting with full-key rollover on USB, and 16.8 million color customizable backlighting. It comes with six programmable gaming keys and 18 programmable functions accessible from three separate banks that can be stored in the keyboard's internal memory. The new keyboard also houses multimedia keys for convenient music and video playback.
Raptor M45 Gaming Mouse
Featuring a lighter variant of the M65 and M60 mice, the M45 is a serious high-performance optical mouse for professional gamers. Piloted by a gaming-tuned Pixart PMW3310 5000dpi optical sensor, it includes large PTFE glide pads, and high-mass scroll wheel all furnished in a right-handed design with a textured, soft-touch surface. With seven programmable buttons with macros, it has an adjustable weight system, and instant DPI switches to allow gamers to swiftly toggle between high sensor resolution for fast motion, and low resolution for precise aiming.
Both Raptors are on display at Corsair's press suite at the Venetian at CES 2014 in Las Vegas from 7-10 January. Both the Raptop K40 gaming keyboard and the Raptor M45 gaming mouse are each backed by a 2-year warranty, and will be available in January for US$79.99 and US$59.99 respectively.
