G.SKILL, a company well known for gaming peripherals and memory modules, has just announced a new mechanical keyboard aimed primarily at PC gamers. The RIPJAWS KM570 MX will feature Cherry MX key switches for a variety of typing experiences. These durable switches are tested to last for up to 50 million keystrokes.

The key feature for the KM570 is its onboard storage, which allows users to customize the keyboard without the need for custom software or drivers. The keyboard is plug-and-play and ready to go out of the box. Users can also customize various other aspects of the keyboard. There are 7 different lighting effects available (each with adjustable speed and brightness), as well as volume and media control keys. Users can also program macros and create custom keyboard shortcuts for Windows applications. The keyboard will save any user settings in onboard storage, allowing people to swap the keyboard from PC to PC and have immediate access to their settings without running any other software.

Other features include anti-ghosting, n-key rollover, red per-key backlighting, and a Windows key lock. The keyboard connects via a 6 foot braided USB cable.

The KM570 MX is currently listed at Newegg.com for USD $99.99 and is available with Cherry MX red, brown, or blue key switches.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
