If you’ve been living under a rock for the past 30 years, you might not have came across one of the 5 billion Cherry MX mechanical switches, which you can find in many modern gaming keyboards. 

 

Cherry manufacture a variety of linear and tactile switches with the most popular being the MX Red, Blue, Black and Brown. But now Cherry is introducing the MX RGB – with 16.7 million colours to choose from.



Now I know what you’re going to say, “backlit keys are nothing new”, and you’re right! But never has there been a MX mechanical keyswitch with so much user customisability. 

Corsair, the gaming peripheral giants, with many very well made and popular keyboards have got first access to the MX RGB switches.  

We can expect more information about pricing and availability from Corsair at CES 2014 next month. 

 

Are you dying to get your hands on them?
