CES 2017 - Patriot has upgraded its Viper keyboard lineup to include two more performance models: the high-end V770 and the starter V730.
The Viper V770 features full per-key scintillating RGB illumination with 16.8 million color combos to match the color schemes of any rig. Kailh Red switches with 2mm actuation provide tactile feel, and full N-key rollover ensures precision during gaming, typing, and regular use. The Viper V770 also features a total of 108 programmable macro keys and five custom profiles that can be switched on-the-fly. Dedicated multimedia keys, a volume scroll wheel, and audio/USB pass-through further add utility to this RGB keyboard.
"Our new RGB V770 keyboard is a high-end, feature rich keyboard, designed with the serious gamer in mind. With thoughtful design, on board media controls, dedicated macros, and a high degree of customization, the V770 is a great compliment to any high-end rig," said Roger Shinmoto, Patriot's Vice President of Product Development.
Patriot affirms the Viper V730 is the "perfect starter mechanical keyboard" that provides gamers with a "reliable entry-level keyboard." Kailh Brown switches actuate the keys and full N-key rollover also ensures adequate precision, with red LEDs providing some style to the starter board. The V730 also features eight dedicated multimedia keys and specific customizable lighting profiles to add even more flair.
"The V730 is the perfect entry-level keyboard for casual gaming use. The V730 ergonomic design, simple set up, and LED backlighting are a perfect mix of price to performance," Shinmoto said.
The Viper V770 will launch in April 2017 for $150, whereas the V730 will be available in February 2017 for just $80.
