World's first look at Patriot Memory's new RGB mechanical keyboard

Patriot's new full RGB keyboard is so new it doesn't have a name yet, but that didn't stop us from getting a glimpse

CES 2016 - At the big electronics showcase in Las Vegas, we were able to sneak the world's first glimpse of Patriot Memory's new RGB mechanical keyboard.


According to our sources, the keyboard is so new it doesn't have a name just yet, but this brilliantly-lit mecha proudly wears the serpentine Viper Gaming badge telling us its another peripheral in Patriot's performance gaming lineup. As you can see from the pictures, the keyboard is full-sized and outfitted with what appear to be macro buttons and color switches.

The keys are outlined with flavorful chromatic backlighting, but we still don't know what kind of tactile switches the keyboard uses, as Patriot has "yet to determine" the switch type. Patriot Memory's Viper Gaming V760 keyboard leverages Kailh Brown switches, so we may see this type used in the new unnamed mecha.

Details are less than scarce, but we wanted to share this little tease with you and show off what Patriot has in store for gamers in 2016. Oh, and let's not forget about that purple mouse on the right, which will likely be part of this year's Viper Gaming refresh.
