MSI Reveals MSI VIGOR GK71 Sonic With MSI Sonic Blue Switches

/ 3 months ago

MSI has announced the release of its new gaming keyboard – VIGOR GK71 SONIC – BLUE SWITCHES. It is an extension of the current VIGOR GK71 SONIC gaming keyboard which previously only had RED SWITCHES. However, as of today, it is now available in the clicky BLUE SWITCHES version. The VIGOR GK71 SONIC also offers a comprehensive set of features to enhance the gaming experience including the built-in MSI ClearCaps for vivid per-key RGB, a dual touch volume knob, dedicated media keys, and a premium memory foam cushion wrist rest for superior comfort.

Powered by MSI Sonic Blue Switches with Vivid RGB Lighting

The VIGOR GK71 SONIC now offers a variety of switch types; the MSI Sonic Blue and MSI Sonic Red. Both are designed in collaboration with the prominent switch maker, Kailh, and has inherited the concept of a lightweight yet responsive keystroke. The switches are designed to provide smooth, seamless, and instantaneous responses with a 45gf operating force and a clicky feel for each keystroke. This minimizes finger fatigue and enhances comfort & ergonomics during gaming sessions.

The keyboard is equipped with MSI ClearCaps, which feature a unique transparent dual-layer design that allows light through the keycaps to enhance lighting for vivid and stunning per-key backlit RGB illumination. The lighting effects can be adjusted by onboard presets or by MSI Mystic Light software.


Solid Aluminum Frame and Premium Wrist Rest

The VIGOR GK71 SONIC features a Hybrid 6+N key rollover and 100% anti-ghosting. The keyboard automatically detects the currently pressed number of keys and switches between 6 key or N key rollover. The top of the keyboard is constructed with aircraft-grade durable aluminium alloy for durability and reliability. The bottom of the keyboard comes with an X-shaped cable routing system, which prevents your peripheral cables from stretching and pulling.

The VIGOR GK71 SONIC has an included soft-touch memory foam wrist rest for a more relaxing experience. Users can also control media playback with the smart dual-touch volume wheel from either the top or the side of the knob. There are also dedicated media keys if physical buttons are preferred. A full range of customization is possible for the keyboard including, settings, RGB effects, macro keys, and the ability to store up to 3 profiles through MSI Center thanks to its onboard memory.
