Logitech is announcing today its Logitech G410 Atlas Spectrum TKL, a mechanical keyboard that has no “ten key” section on the side.
Designed by the Logitech G gaming division, the keyboard features exclusive Romer-G mechanical switches, intelligent lighting, and Arx Control Integration (which gives you in-game information on your mobile device). The keyboard is Logitech’s latest attempt to get its hooks in PC gamers, who are coming out in ever larger numbers thanks to big hits such as League of Legends.
The Newark, Calif.-based U.S. division of Logitech said that the keyboard offers 25 percent faster actuation than standard mechanical keyboards. It is designed to be portable, so you can easily carry it to a friend’s house for a LAN party.
“We worked closely with gamers of all ages and our esports teams to create this ultra-light keyboard that is durable and comfortable,” said Ujesh Desai, the vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech, in a statement. “The result is something that we think meets the needs of esports athletes but is also great for younger gamers looking to buy their first gaming keyboard.”
The Logitech G410 Atlas Spectrum features exclusive Romer-G mechanical switches that register your key presses faster than competing mechanical switches. With an actuation point of 1.5 millimeters, Romer-G switches receive commands more quickly. Logitech said that gives you an edge in competitive games, where every millisecond matters. It has a durability rating of 70 million keystrokes, or 40 percent more than others on the market.
Without the number pad or macro keys, you get extra space to make wide motions with your mouse. Plus, the compact design brings your hands closer together for improved comfort, which is particularly important for low-DPI gamers, Logitech said.
With the Logitech Arx Control iOS or Android app, you can see your in-game information and other vital stats.
The keyboard sells for $130, or €149.
