CES 2013 - Last year was a big hit for ROCCAT as they brought forth the ISKU. In that design, the keyboard allowed unheard of control with the cross-talk features and T-keys that bring your thumbs some more action other than just pounding away at the space bar. While the ISKU was based on rubber dome switches, and the only reason I didn't keep my ISKU longer, things are now changing as ROCCAT ups the ante.

This time with the new Ryos, not only is ROCCAT finally entering the mechanical switch game, this board is to be offered with red, blue, black, and brown Cherry MX switches for the perfect fit to any user, they didn't just stop with that. As you will see in the attached video, this board boasts the most intense lighting scheme I have ever seen in a keyboard along with all of the things that already make ROCCAT a player in the keyboard market.

As I sat and watched this demo in the CES suite, I had to pick up my chin a couple of times, so be sure to back away from the desk as not to hurt yourself, you have been warned of its awesomeness.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
