Corsair Introduces K60 Pro Keyboard Lineup, Debuts Cherry Viola Switches
Helming Corsair's new K60 Pro mechanical gaming keyboard lineup is the K60 RGB Pro, which is Corsair's first keyboard to feature the brand-new Cherry Viola switches. It features a brushed aluminium frame along with per-key RGB lighting.
"Cherry Viola switches utilise a patented self-cleaning V-Shape contact system and a two-stage, CrossLinear activation," states the press release. "The result is a
smooth linear keypress and a satisfying fast reset ready to take on whatever your fingers can throw at it."
In addition to the per-key RGB lighting, The K60 RGB Pro features custom keycaps for an enhanced underglow to illuminate your desktop with iCue-controlled lighting. It also comes equipped with the usual suite of features expected of most gaming keyboards, including NKRO, Windows Key Lock mode, and media control shortcuts.
Apart from the K60 RGB Pro, the lineup also features the K60 Pro which - as indicated by the omission of 'RGB' in its name - only features single-colour lighting in red. The K60 RGB Pro SE is a premium edition of the RGB Pro, with an additional cushy magnetic palm rest along with PBT double-shot keycaps. For those who prefer low-profile keyboards, there's also a variant which features Cherry MX Low Profile RGB Speed switches.
