Corsair is therefore taking advantage of the start of the school year in September 2022 to launch two keyboards with OPX optical switches. These promise excellent speed and fluidity for an activation distance of only 1 mm. These are the K60 PRO TKL and the K70 PRO OPX models.
Two new and a new color for the third from Corsair
The first Corsair keyboard is therefore in TKL format, i.e. without a numeric keypad for a more compact appearance. On the power side we find the classic detachable USB Type-C. For its RGB, the set benefits from an RGB key by key. As a reminder, the inside of the keyboard benefits from the manufacturer’s new OPX switches with a lifespan of 150 million activations and an emphasis point placed at 1 mm. The PBT keys are absent and you will have to switch to the K70 PRO OPX model to take advantage of them. The price of sale is 149.99 euros.
The 470 PRO OPX is the second high-end keyboard to launch. Those who are familiar with the manufacturer Corsair know that the K70 is a safe bet which has been on sale for a long time and which is frequently entitled to new versions… Aluminum butt plate, PBT keys double injection, the finishes are visibly once again at the top. It takes advantage of Axon technology for a polling rate of 8000 Hz, therefore an ultimate reaction time. The big novelty is obviously the OPX technology. The keyboard is offered at a price of 219.99 euros. Which is obviously quite expensive despite everything.
