Anti-ghosting capability to help keep your keystrokes on top of the game and not cause your keyboard, or your toon, to move where you don't want them to go, or lock up and miss a stroke.
Beautiful, slim keyboard with Hyperesponse™ Technology which offers a reduced latency and helps to maximize the response for in-game actions.
TouchPanel™ with easy access media keys.
Gaming mode for deactivating the Windows key.
Ten customizable software profiles for game switching at a moments notice.
