The Roccat Ryos is a mechanical keyboard aimed at the hardcore PC gaming market. Amazing customization with detailed design make this one of the most desired keyboards currently on the market.

ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro – 169,99 USD, in stores mid November

The flagship model of the series is the Ryos MK Pro. It features an additional ARM Cortex processor which is responsible solely for handling the keyboard’s configurable per-key illumination, an impressive and innovative feature that sets it apart from any other mechanical keyboard on the market. “Imagine launching Battlefield 4 and having the keyboard automatically light up all your relevant key bindings – this is what the Ryos MK Pro is able to do for you”, says René Korte. “Configure tons of options in the driver software or code your own jaw-dropping illumination features with the SDK we provide – only your imagination is the limit.” The Ryos MK Pro is also available in four different Cherry MX key switch colors: black, brown, blue and red. This almost makes the integrated USB 2.0 hub and pass-through audio jacks a side note.
