Corsair K70 RGB TKL Mechanical Keyboard Review
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
Corsair already has a seemingly endless line-up of amazing and award-winning gaming keyboards. But is there room for one more? Of course, there is! Especially when it’s this lovely TKL version, built to dominate at LAN gaming tournaments or just lay waste to your friends while playing from home. Corsair already has some of the best gaming keyboards, but with their latest, they think they’ve made them even better, with tighter response times and improved features! I’m not really sure that’s possible, but I’m happy to be proven wrong!
Corsair K70 RGB TKL
Corsair certainly has been busy when it comes to adding features. The keyboard comes with everything you would expect, such as a fully mechanical design, PBT double-shot keycaps, Full N-Key Rollover (NKRO) and 100% Anti-Ghosting, and their latest and greatest iCUE RGB technologies. I mean… of course it has RGB, it’s Corsair! However, it’s the new stuff that I really love, such as the AXON Hyper-Processing Technology, giving it an 8,000 Hz polling rate, a detachable Type-C cable, a lockable Tournament switch, and a choice of mechanical switches.
