Computex 2015 - Rosewill has brought its new thin white wireless keyboard to the show floor this year in Taiwan, showing off a very professional slim product with what seems to be a track pad - however this is unconfirmed by the brand representatives.
Including standard-sized keys and a 10 meter wireless range, this keyboard offers consumers complete plug and play compatibility for easy pairing with the wireless receiver.
Although it boasts comfortable typing feedback, there is no Bluetooth available for this model.
Computex 2015 - Adding to the incredible laptop offerings by AUROS is its small peripheral range. Seeing a debut at Computex 2014, a GIGABYTE representative explained to me that AUROS is all about "high-end gaming only" and intends to produce only premium quality peripherals at a premium price.
Pictured here is the Thunder K7 mechanical keyboard, offering a detachable numpad. This numpad can connect on either side of the keyboard, clipping in using magnets and is interchangeable depending on which way you would like to use it. The same goes for the wrist rest, doing away with the annoying 'click-in' plastic clips of the past. Adding to this is Cherry MX Red mechanical keys and complete anti-ghosting capabilities.
Next up is the Thunder M7 mouse, offering 16 programmable macro keys, an 8200dpi laser sensor, 20 million click Omron switches and is targeted at MMO and RPG gamers.
Computex 2015 - G.SKILL used Computex 2015 as a launch pad for its new Ripjaws line of gaming peripherals, and TweakTown got a close up of the new Ripjaws MX780 RGB gaming mouse.
The ambidextrous mouse features a height-adjustable palm rest and interchangeable side grips, designed to make the mouse even more comfortable.
Computex 2015 - After first reporting about the G.SKILL Ripjaws gaming keyboards, TweakTown got up close and personal with the new gaming peripherals.
Here is the G.SKILL Ripjaws KM780 RGB up close:
The keyboard has two different light colors, and the keyboard has been designed with durability and practicality in mind while providing an enhanced gaming experience.
Computex 2015 - During Computex 2015, ASRock has shown off the world's first USB 3.1 front panel, which is designed to turn your SATA Express header into a pair of Type-A and Type-C USB 3.1 ports.
The new front panel is shipping with select ASRock 100 Series models. TweakTown will let you know when we have additional details regarding this snazzy new PC addition.
USB evolved into the most common standard for connecting peripherals to PCs, and while it has been upgraded, the addition of USB 3.1 is a game changer. USB 3.0 has speeds up to 10Gb/s, a drastic increase over the 5 Gb/s currently offered by USB 3.0 - and it absolutely blows USB 2.0 out of the water.
Computex 2015 - We broke news recently of ASUS releasing a new Republic Of Gamers (ROG) series of keyboards and mice and now we've headed down on the ground in Taipei to check them out.
Pictured here is the Spatha wireless and wired gaming mouse designed with MMO games in mind, the Gladius gaming mouse and the Sica compact mouse designed for both left and right handed gamers.
ASUS does something a little different from the rest, allowing you to take a look inside its mouse to see exactly how it works alongside providing a few Omron mouse switch examples for inspection.
Computex 2015 - G.SKILL has launched its Ripjaws line of gaming peripherals, which includes a mechanical keyboard, gaming mouse, and 7.1 surround sound headset.
The Ripjaws KM780 RGB and KM780 MX mechanical gaming keyboards are designed to withstand continued gaming, and have onboard memory so customized keyboard settings can be saved. Up to three independent modes of settings can be saved on the keyboard, with Mode hotkeys allowing for easy switching between profiles. Each hotkey allows for independent lighting patterns, macro setup, timer setting, key delay and repeat rate, polling rate, and other settings.
The MX780 RGB gaming mouse is designed for right-handed or left-handed gamers, powered by a 32-bit ARM processor - and an Avago laser sensor. The 8200 dpi mouse with eight fully programmable buttons supports a 1000Hz polling rate, and can support up to five individual profiles.
Patriot has launched its Viper line of gaming peripherals, featuring two mice, a gaming headset and a mechanical keyboard.
