SteelSeries announced the “World’s Most Versatile” Mechanical Gaming keyboards

SteelSeries has announced two new keyboards at Computex 2019, both of which are said to the “World’s Most Versatile Mechanical Gaming Keyboards”, offering PC users the ability to adjust the actuation distances of their unique OmniPoint switches on the fly. 

The Apex Pro and Apex Pro TKL, SteelSeries’ latest keyboard offerings, are designed with adjustable actuation distances that are defined by magnetic sensors. Using SteelSeries Engine, or the keyboards themselves, users can adjust the actuation distances of their keys to any value between 0.4mm and 3.6mm.

With such a variance in potential actuation distances, users of the Apex Pro series can allow their keys to be actuated by the lightest tap, or with typewiter-like full actuation, enabling users to adjust their keyboards as they see fit. 

The OLED screen on each of these keyboards can be used alongside the keyboard’s scroll wheel to switch between keyboard profiles, perhaps between typist and gaming profiles, or display notifications for applications like Discord. The scroll wheel can also act as a keyboard volume slider, or to adjust other settings within SteelSeries Engine. 

SteelSeries’ OmniPoint key switches will be exclusive to their Apex Pro lineup, though Apex 7 and Apex 7 TKL models will also be available in red, brown and blue key switch types.
