Corsair has unveiled several second generation Vengeance gaming peripherals including the Vengeance K95 Mechanical Keyboard, an update to the original K90 announced at last year’s CES. The revised board is said to make up for some of the shortcoming found on the K90, such as a mix of mechanical and membrane keys.
The Vengeance K95 features a black anodized brushed aluminum chassis with Cherry MX Red switches throughout – no oddball membrane keys this time, we’re told. In addition to the standard array of keys, there are also 18 dedicated macro keys on the left side of the board and buttons to control media across the top.
The board also features an improved lighting system where each key is now individually backlit with four different levels of intensity, albeit only in white. Macros and lighting profiles are stored in onboard flash memory. Additionally, the K95 features 20-key rollover and a 1ms reporting rate. Look for this board to hit retail sometime early this spring for $149.99.
Also new for 2013 are the Vengeance M95 and M65 gaming mice which both include an ergonomic aluminum unibody chassis and an Avago Technologies ADNS-9800 LaserStream gaming sensor. Corsair says this 8200 DPI sensor provides a 30 percent boost in tracking resolution compared to previous generation mice.
The pointers also use high-precision button switches, on-the-fly resolution switching, programmable lift detection, a high-mass scroll wheel and PTFE glide pads, just to name a few features. Both mice will be available this month for $79.99 and $69.99, respectively.
