Corsair RGB Line of Pro Gaming Gear Announced
The awesomeness continues with Corsair RGB Line of Pro Gaming Gear having been announced at the event. Featuring three of their more popular peripherals, the RGB Line utilizes their custom software CUE Link, or Corsair Utility Engine Link , to connect devices and share color information. Check out their featured trio.
Gamers may know of the Strafe, the mechanical keyboard announced in June, but its getting a lovely sibling in the Strafe RGB. Utilizing their new Strafe RGB MX Silent switches, Corsair has taken Cherry MX Switches and added the dynamic color backlighting and made quieter mechanical switches. I still haven’t had the chance to use a mechanical keyboard at length, but when I played around with the K65 at my local Best Buy, the keys felt satisfying and quite fantastic.
If you really want a treat, go check out their RGB Hall of Fame. Gamers have programmed some amazing things with the RGB systems, as one gamer has created a full on Pac-Man animation.
Corsair has taken their MMO/Gaming mouse with customizable key slider and given it a jump start with four zones of lighting with the Scimitar RGB, people got so excited about it that they started to get overwatch boosting so that they can play more and have better rankings.
This monster of a mouse has a whopping seventeen programmable buttons, with full mechanical switches on all side buttons, and pushing 12,000 DPI.
It seems the Void RGB family of headsets are new to the party but there are six models to choose from: three wired, three wireless. Sound quality ranges from Stereo to 7.1 Surround and a half of the family being wireless, and the Void Stereo looks to be console-compatible with both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One since it utilizes a 3.5mm jack.
The Rest of the Family
While the featured trio may have you thinking there are only three in the set, it seems the majority of Corsair Gaming gear has boarded the RGB train. If you’re looking for an RGB keyboard or an RGB mouse, you’re in luck! It seems the Void is the only headset you can customize with CUE Link, but with the amount of love given to the keyboards & mice, it wouldn’t surprise me if that changed soon.
