In addition to its new mid tower cases, Corsair is launching four new mechanical keyboards and two new gaming mice to the Vengeance and Raptor gaming lineups. The new gear includes Vengeance K70, Vengeance K65, and Raptor K50 gaming keyboards and the Raptor M40 and M30 mice. All of the new gaming hardware will be available later this summer.

Corsair Vengeance K70

Earlier this year, Corsair released a new K70 mechanical gaming keyboard using Cherry MX Red switches to complement its existing K60 and K90 keyboards (which Scott reviewed last year). At Computex, Corsair announced two new models that use different Cherry MX switches. Instead of the reds, the new models will use either Cherry MX Brown or Cherry MX Blue switches.

The K70 features a gun-metal anodized aluminum case with adjustable blue backlighting on a key-by-key basis. The keyboard features an anti-ghosting matrix with full key rollover and a 1000Hz polling rate. It will be available for purchase in July with a MSRP of $129.99.

Corsair Vengeance K65

The Vengeance K65 is a new, more compact, mechanical keyboard that utilizes Cherry MX Red switches. It has a full-size key layout, but the palm rest and extra horizontal space has been cut down to enable the K65 to fit on smaller desks. It retains the anti-ghosting, full key rollover and 1000Hz polling rate of the K70 mechanical keyboard along with a brushed metal aesthetic.

This mechanical gaming keyboard will be available in July for $89.99.

Corsair Raptor K50

Whie Corsair's previous keyboard products ahve been mechanical in nature, the new Raptor K50 uses membrane keys rather than the more expensive mechanical variety. In keeping with the gaming nature, the Raptor K50 features 18 programmable keys with 3 banks allowing for up to 54 total macros. It also has a Windows lock key that prevents accidental presses of the Windows key from interrupting your game session as well as six multimedia playback control keys.

Additionally, the Raptor K50 has customizable backlighting that can be adjusted to any number of RGB colors. It supports full key rollover and will be for sale starting in July for $99.99.

Corsair Raptor M40

Corsair is also releasing two new gaming mice to complement the new gaming keyboards. The Raptor M40 is a right-handed optical mouse with seven programmable buttons. It features adjustable weight, an Avago ADNS-3090 4000 DPI optical sensor, and DPI switching buttons.

The new gaming mouse will be available later this month for $59.99.

Corsair Raptor M30

Finally, Corsair is also launching a low-cost gaming mouse called the Raptor M30. This mouse is a less complex design, but it still packs a 4000 DPI optical sensor, six buttons, DPI switching, and red LEDs. It ergonomically favors right handed gamers.

The Raptor M30 will go on sale sometime this month for $49.99.

Been waiting for corsair to release a keyboard with something other than red switches, glad to see they finally are. I really don't understand why there aren't more mechanical keyboards with dedicated media keys (none of that f key dual function crap).

Agreed.

Red switches are sh*t to type on.

Prolonged typing is like banging against a hard wall, very uncomfortable.

Hey corsair, there's a reason whey most mechanical keyboards sold come with Cherry Black/Brown/Blue.

Cherry Reds are like the idiot teen who insists on going out with a brightly colored 3 foot Mohawk insisting it's cool when all he really looks like is an idiot.

Whoever at your company who keeps insisting on these cherry reds should be fired.

For gaming, I prefer reds, as do most.

These are gaming keyboards, not office keyboards - you need to understand the difference.

Who the hell switches out keyboards between gaming and general purpose use?

99.9999% of people stick with a single keyboard.

I have used a K90 and this keyboard is total sh*t to type on daily, gaming or not.

Cherry reds suck.
