COUGAR releases 600K gaming keyboard
The maker of high-end gaming hardware COUGAR has announced the market release of the all-new 600K gaming keyboard. The new company product looks like the already released 700K gaming keyboard but the design philosophy behind it is different – the 600K targets people who do not need thousands of functions and instead favor purity and simplicity.
“We knew that there were people who simply weren’t interested in the plethora of functions offered by high end keyboards but at the same time didn’t want to settle for a lower end one. For all those people, who just want a pure, high quality mechanical keyboard in a durable and elegant design, we created the COUGAR 600K,” said Lio Huang, Marketing Dept. III Director, COUGAR.
Specs-wise the new 600K keyboard is an N-Key Rollover mechanical keyboard that features Cherry MX switches. The philosophy behind it means that no drivers are required and that all you have to do is connect the keyboard to start using it. So just open the box and then connect the gold-plated USB connector to a PC to get it working. The 600K is still a gaming keyboard so it comes with a few extra functions for gaming here and there but they come in the most unobtrusive way.
Here’s what you get when it comes to these functions – the 600K allows the end user to quickly adjust the repeat rate of the keys, which is especially useful for games which require pressing repeatedly a specific key. Then you can disable the Windows key and there are keys that control the lighting of the WASD and directions keys; finally some multimedia buttons complement the core functions. These extra keys are all located on top of the keyboard, so they will not require the user to adjust his/her movements in any way to reach all the standard keys. In addition to this, the 600K includes a USB pass-through for the user’s convenience, completing thus the set of small additions to make the user’s life more comfortable.
The new COUGAR 600K gaming keyboard will be available in all four Cherry MX Switch colors. No word on pricing as of now.
