First up is the XK700 keyboard, which features Cherry MX switches, 16.8M RGB lighting that's customizable per key, and full N-key rollover functionality (so simultaneous keystrokes always register as you'd expect them to). The design looks to be simplistic with a clean silver and black colour scheme -- just the way we like it.

Then there's the XM300 gaming mouse, which houses the Pixart 3988 optical sensor and the "ultra durable" Omron Switch (said to be good for 20 million clicks). Like the XK700, it also features customizable 16.8M RGB lighting.

Finally, the XMP300 mousepad offers a "slick gliding surface" for when you need to make quick movements in twitch shooters and the like, stitched edges that resist fraying, and a high density rubber base which presumably means it will stay where you want it to.

We'll have pricing and availability details for you as they come.
