Gigabyte-Aivia-Osmium-keyboard

Taiwanese PC hardware maker Gigabyte has launched the Aivia Osmium gaming keyboard, which brings fast response, silent keystrokes and tactile feedback to every gamer out there.

The Aivia Osmium is a fully mechanical keyboard and draws its name from the chemical element osmium – which is rare and very expensive, yet also noble and durable. The Aivia Osmium comes with cherry red mechanical key switches but also features a built-in USB hub. The new Gigabyte keyboard also utilizes the revolutionary anti-ghosting matrix key-switch design and innovatively offers dynamic volume controls and backlit wheel controllers.

As to the keys themselves the Aivia Osmium makes use of mechanical key-switches that provide the ultimate user experience during frenzied gaming sessions or prolonged multi-touch keyboarding. The keys provide superior tactile feedback and an optimized force of 45g. Reduced key actuation distance of 2 mm improves keyboard response time while remaining whisper silent during operation. The superior materials used give the keyboard the staggering 50 million key press lifespan – which is ten times longer than any conventional keyboard.

The keyboard also allows the user to pre-define and switch between macro keys and use five individual macro keys and five different gaming profiles for a customized game experience.

The pricing of the Gigabyte Aivia Osmium is unknown, though.
