Gamers are strange beasts, and there’s probably someone out there who is going to salivate over this. Logitech is announcing today that it is launching its Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum keyboard for gamers.

The product is a full-size RGB-lit mechanical gaming keyboard, meaning it has customizable lighting that enables you to backlight each key with a palette of 16.8 million colors. It uses Romer-G mechanical switches, allowing for 25 percent faster actuation than standard mechanical keyboards. I suppose that could be really critical in a furious session of StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void.

The keyboard has dedicated media controls, and you can customize the function keys any way you want.

“We met with dozens of gamers over the last year and a half and asked them what they wanted in a gaming keyboard,” said Ujesh Desai, the vice president and general manager of gaming at Switzerland-based Logitech, in a statement. “The result is the G810 Orion Spectrum, a clean, sophisticated design that’s focused on delivering pure performance.”

The keyboard comes pre-loaded with custom lighting profiles for over 300 games, so all the customization is done for you out of the box.

The keyboard is available in the U.S. and Europe in February for $159 and €189, respectively.
