GIGABYTE has revealed their latest mechanical gaming keyboard to the Aorus family, the Aorus K9 Optical gaming keyboard. The Aorus K9 Optical features Optical mechanical switches that are made by Flaretech and produce debounce times as low as 0.03ms. This provides higher precision gaming and unmatched durability of 100 million keystrokes.




The impressive Optical mechanical switches aren't the only impressive addition to GIGABYTE's latest keyboard, the Aorus K9 is also splash proof with GIGABYTE claiming "Without exposed metal connectors, it is fully splash proof, even enabling use under water". The optical Flaretech switches also eliminate chatter, this achieved by the use of fully optical actuation, rather than electromechanical.




As expected with premium gaming products, RGB illumination is present with 16.8 million-color RGB multi-color back-lighting that is compatible with GIGABYTE RGB Fusion software. GIGABYTE have yet to release pricing or availability details.
