Corsair's new K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE mechanical keyboard has just been announced and the company claims it's their fastest such product ever for hardcore Windows gamers. There are two different models to choose from that are priced at $169.99 and $129.99.


Corsair says the keys on the keyboard have a 1.2mm mechanical actuation, compared to a 2.0mm actuation found in normal mechanical keyboards. It adds:

To compete at the highest level, you need the fastest mechanical keyboard there is. RAPIDFIRE's lightning-quick responsiveness and 100% anti-ghosting technology let you strike with an unmatched combination of speed and precision. And the forged aluminum frame is built to withstand storm after storm of keystrokes, so you'll always live to fight another day.

The K70 RAPIDFIRE keyboard with red backlighting is now on sale for $129.99, while the model with support for multi-color, per key backlighting is also on sale for $169.99. Corsair is also selling a smaller model of the keyboard, the K65, that has the same mechanical key speed and the multi-color, per key backlighting, but without the 10 number keys on the right side, for $149.99
