Corsair is teaming up with Cherry to bring gamers the world’s first Cherry MX RGB-based mechanical gaming keyboard.

Cherry has enhanced its leading keyboard range with RGB technology. SMD LEDs illuminate key symbols in specially designed keycaps using the MX RGB switch in the entire RGB colour spectrum – meaning gamers get a choice of 16.7 million different RGB colours.

Due to a special design of the entire system, all 16.7 million RGB colours can also be displayed in high luminosity for the first time.

“With our newly developed MX RGB switch, key symbols can be evenly illuminated not only in the widest variety of brightness levels but also in up to 16.7 million different colours,” explained Karl-Heinz Muller, product developer at Cherry.

“Our new concept of light conductance was implemented through the use of new materials and several patent-pending technical solutions. This innovative, technical concept was implemented only in conjunction with manufacturing processes and sophisticated tool concepts constantly optimised over many years."

Cherry and Corsair will debut the Cherry MX RGB keyboards at Corsair’s press suite at CES 2014 in January.
