Corsair K70 RGB Pro Mechanical Keyboard Review

There are few products where I’m so confident about their quality before I even open the box. However, the Corsair K70 is one of those products, and I’m really looking forward to putting this one through its paces because I know it’s gonna be great! That being said, I’ll look quite the fool if it’s not. The K70 series has been the gold standard for mechanical gaming keyboards for many years now, and I know many of our readers will have owned or at least used one over the years. Of course, Corsair doesn’t just bring any old re-hash to market, and the new K70 RGB Pro is packing some impressive upgrades that will once again raise the quality for the K70 series.

Corsair K70 RGB Pro

You still get that classic K70 design, with just a few minor evolutions of the design that retain the aesthetic but make it look modern and fresh again. You get the same durable aluminium frame, it’s fully equipped with the latest Cherry MX mechanical switches, and of course, full per-key RGB lighting with iCUE customisation. However, there’s the new AXON technology and a dedicated tournament switch that help push things to the next level. That means an insanely fast 8000 Hz polling rate, 4000 Hz key scanning, and up to20 layer RGB lighting customisation in hardware mode, but unlimited in software mode. That’s certainly not everything that’s on offer, but you get the idea… it’s all the best of the best here.

The K70 RGB Pro is available with Cherry MX Speed RGB, MX Red RGB, MX Brown RGB, MX Blue RGB and MX Silent RGB. All versions are available with their PBT double-shot Pro keycaps or Polycarbonate Keycaps, and all now come with a standard bottom row layout to improve custom cap support.

K70 RGB Pro Features

  • The Legend Continues: The K70 RGB PRO retains the iconic elements of the award-winning K70 RGB with a durable aluminium frame, CHERRY MX mechanical key switches, and per-key RGB backlighting
  • Powered by CORSAIR AXON Hyper-Processing Technology: Enables a new level of K70 performance, processing and transmitting your inputs up to 8x faster than conventional gaming keyboards
  • 100% CHERRY MX RGB Red Mechanical Keyswitches: Have a linear travel with a silky smooth keypress that’s ideal for performance gamers, and are guaranteed for 100 million keystrokes
  • PBT DOUBLE-SHOT PRO Keycaps with Standard Bottom Row: A precision-moulded keycap set with a standard bottom row layout resists wear, fading, and shine, with 1.5mm thickness for rigid stability
  • Switch on the Competition: Flip the tournament switch to focus on winning those crucial games, automatically locking to distraction-free static backlighting and disabling accidental activations
  • Detachable Braided USB Type-C Cable: This makes the K70 RGB PRO easy to set up and ready to take on the go.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
