Last year, Corsair captured the imagination of gamers with innovative RGB multicolor lighting that transformed PC gaming keyboards and mice. Today at Gamescom, Corsair raises the bar higher with new RGB gaming peripherals: the STRAFE RGB mechanical keyboards, Scimitar RGB MMO/MOBA mouse, and flagship VOID gaming headsets. Corsair is also unveiling the ultra-quiet STRAFE RGB Silent, the world's first keyboard with Cherry MX RGB Silent gaming switches. To complement the launch of these new products, an enhanced version of the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) software is available, enabling cascading rainbows, dynamic ripples, and other multicolor lighting effects to operate in tandem across all Corsair RGB keyboards, mice, and headsets.

Today Corsair unleashes two new mechanical gaming keyboard models with RGB lighting: STRAFE RGB and STRAFE RGB Silent. The STRAFE RGB Silent gaming keyboard is the world's first with Cherry MX Silent switches which deliver the speed and precision of linear mechanical switches with significantly quieter actuation. The new switches combined with the noise-suppressing architecture of the keyboard chassis, make the pro-level STRAFE RGB Silent 30% quieter than other mechanical gaming keyboards. The STRAFE RGB keyboard comes in versions with Cherry MX Red or Brown switches.

The STRAFE RGB Silent and STRAFE RGB offer customizable multicolor backlighting of up to 16.8 million colors with a virtually unlimited number of lighting configurations and effects. In addition, each key on the new keyboard can also be programmed with automated macros using CUE (Corsair Utility Engine) software.


VOID Wireless, USB, and Analog Gaming Headsets


Available in wireless, USB, or analog stereo models, the VOID gaming headset earcups are shaped to fit the human ear, providing the utmost comfort while delivering spectacular audio fidelity. The USB and wireless models incorporate innovative features like InfoMic status LEDs and a CUE Control dial, enabling users to control their gaming soundscape without hitting pause. These models also feature customizable RGB lighting, EQ, and Dolby 7.1 surround, allowing for a fully personalized audio experience. For those seeking a universal stereo solution, the VOID Stereo analog headsets feature a mobile-compatible connector and included Y-adaptor cable for compatibility with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, mobile devices, and all PC and Mac computers.


SCIMITAR RGB - World's Most Advanced MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse


Rounding out the lineup, the SCIMITAR RGB gaming mouse improves the MMO/MOBA experience with its exclusive patent pending Key Slider control system. The innovative system provides 8mm of adjustment, putting every button within reach of most gamers' thumbs regardless of hand size for improved comfort and accuracy. The 12 mechanical side buttons were designed with pro player specification in mind, delivering ultra-consistent, tactile feedback and actuation. The pro-proven 12,000 DPI high performance optical sensor provides pixel-precise gaming performance. The SCIMITAR RGB also utilizes Corsair's one-of-a-kind CUE software, enabling gamers to customize mouse sensitivity, buttons functions, and lighting, as well as program advanced capabilities such as custom timer countdowns, double macros, and much more.

Corsair's fans spoke, and we listened: Corsair's CUE editing software is more powerful and easier-to-use than ever before. The latest CUE version, unleashes new presets that make customizing lighting effects quick and simple, and allows users to synchronize static and animated lighting across all Corsair RGB keyboards, mice, and headsets.

With CUE, all settings can be saved to profiles that load automatically when a game or other software is used. Beyond customizing lighting profiles, CUE improves the overall gaming experience by providing critical visual feedback, reducing response time, and enhancing audio for a more immersive experience, and a competitive edge.

My thoughts

It is always nice to see a whole new range of products but one item in particular has taken my interest, the RGB Strake with the new Cherry MX Silent Key Switch. This new Key switch will be an switch which will be exclusive to Corsair for it's first few months after release. 

Corsair say that the key is 30% quieter than Cherry MX Red keys and required he same 45g of force to activate. This is done without the use of O-rings or other keyboard silencing methods, so this keyboard will have the same stock mechanical keyboard feel that we all know and love. 

Right now we have yet to see or test ths new Cherry MX key type, but we will definitely be contacting Corsair in order to give them a try and deliver you guys our opinions on the new switch type.

So basically a cheaper plastic version of the K70 RGB with quieter switches.

One of the selling points is the sound of mech switches for me though Quote
