These new switches come packed with gold contacts and a 1.7mm actuation, giving a similar point to the well-known Cherry Red setup. The X40 keyboard further offers a 'space camo' color scheme, five programmable macro keys, USB 2.0 pass-through ports, a lengthy 6.5ft braided cable and red backlighting. This product provides users with two switch options - tactile and linear. These switch options mean that gamers are either able to get an extra-responsive product set up for StarCraft II and OSU in the tactile mode, or scale things back with the linear model for a quieter experience.

The M50 mouse provides users with a tailored experience that Das Keyboard claims is perfect for games requiring super fast clicks and precision. Packing a 6400 GPI 4G sensor and nine programmable buttons, this new product further provides six gaming profiles, a diecast aluminum shoe and 4D tilt scroll wheel.

The X40 keyboard is now available for $149, with the M50 mouse setting users back $79 and the silently released mousepad set at a price point of $19 and $29 for two different models.
