ROCCAT has announced new additions to its gaming peripheral line-up. The new Vulcan keyboard series consists of Pro, Pro TKL and vanilla TKL variants. They are equipped with this OEM's Titan switches and AIMO lighting system, as is the new Burst Pro mouse. Its properties include feet made of pure, heat-treated PTFE to enhance its speed and responsiveness.

The Turtle Beach-owned gaming accesories brand ROCCAT has launch its latest products. The new Vulcan RGB keyboard line has a low-profile design intended to minimize user fatigue over time, audio controls within easy reach and key-stabilizing technology to avoid wobble.

The Vulcan series also has a minimal design that spares frame-material so as to leave a generous amount of their switches on show. These components are ROCCAT's "class-leading" Titan offerings. The base-model Vulcan is a mechanical keyboard, which means it has the linear versions of the same. They have an actuation point of 1.4 millimeters (mm), which makes for 3.6mm of travel.

ROCCAT asserts that the resulting effect is crisp, and is also "30% quicker than standard [switches]" to respond. The Vulcan is also "tenkeyless" (TKL), which obviously means it lacks a number-pad so as to remain compact. Its Pro counterpart also has a TKL version, with new Titan optical switches instead.

They have the same actuation distance as the linear variants, although they also "harness the speed of light with firmware that recognizes each keystroke cleanly, distinctly and with zero delay". They are also rated to withstand up to 100 million presses.

The new Burst Pro mouse has optical Titan switches of its own, as well as a 16000dpi ROCCAT Owl-Eye optical sensor. It also has a honeycomb design and a 1.8m "PhantomFlex" cable. All of these new products are also compatible with the AIMO RGB software, and also with the Elo headest series. They are all available today (October 30, 2020) from the OEM's website.

The Vulcan TKL is priced at €129.99 (~US$152), whereas the Pro TKL is €159.99 (~US$187) and its full-sized Pro counterpart is €199.99 (~US$233). The Burst Pro, on the other hand, costs €59.99 (~US$70).
