Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard review: quietest mechanical keyboard on the market
The famous manufacturer of high performance hardware and peripherals gaming Corsair has announced the release of two new keyboards that are incorporated into your keyboard. It is, in both cases, revised versions of its two top sales keyboards, in this case the Corsair STRAFE RGB MK.2 and the Corsair K70 RGB MK.2, of which we are lucky to present our particular analysis of the first from them.
Let’s start talking about the second version of the top sales keyboard of the brand, the K70 RGB MK.2. There are not too many new features that Corsair has done with respect to the original R70 K70, and what we are going to find are rather slight aesthetic changes, as well as clear compatibility with the new unified iCUE software of the brand.
Thus, the Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 maintains its high quality anodized aluminum frame, its individual RGB backlight per key, and its original Cherry MX switches, in addition to the USB passthrough port, dedicated multimedia keys, analog volume wheel, 100% anti ghosting, repose dolls and others. Yes it has seen expanded its internal memory to 8 MB, which allows you to store up to three profiles without even software. In addition, as always includes additional key sets for FPS and MOBA, with specific texture and contouring to feel less fatigue during long game sessions.
The family of keyboards STRAFE, of which we also analyzed the first version, has always had the reputation of being quite off-road, but without a doubt one of its main features is that it is the only one of the brand that incorporates the Silent Cherry MX Silent switches.
In this case, we find many more aesthetic changes, such as the inclusion of a dedicated key to change profiles, some extra large multimedia buttons, an analog volume wheel, and some minor aesthetic changes, such as the inclusion of the illuminated logo of the brand in the upper zone. For the rest, the STRAFE RGB MK.2 maintains its solid structure, its Cherry MX switches 100% original, repose dolls, USB port passthrough and, just as they have done with the new K70 RGB MK.2, is now compatible with iCUE.
