CORSAIR K57 RGB Wireless Gaming Keyboard Specs and Features
CORSAIR, a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today launched the new CORSAIR K57 RGB Wireless Gaming Keyboard. The first gaming keyboard from CORSAIR to include the breakthrough technologies CAPELLIX RGB LEDs and SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS, the K57 RGB Wireless boasts both incredibly bright, stunning per-key RGB LED lighting and the convenience of a hyper-fast, ultra-stable wireless connection.
The K57 RGB Wireless is lit up by vivid per-key dynamic RGB backlighting, without sacrificing performance thanks to its CAPELLIX RGB LEDs. First debuted in CORSAIR DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR4 Memory, CAPELLIX LEDs shine up to 60% brighter and are up to 60% more efficient than conventional LEDs, giving the K57 RGB Wireless a long-lasting battery life of up to 35 hours on a single charge even with RGB lighting enabled, so you can spend more time enjoying the light show and less time charging.
Less wires means more freedom – the K57 RGB Wireless is the first CORSAIR keyboard to take advantage of lightning-fast SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS technology. Boasting an incredibly low sub-1ms wireless latency and up to 33ft of range, the K57 RGB Wireless lets you play your own way, whether from your desk, couch, or beyond. SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS features Intelligent Frequency Shift (IFS), ensuring an exceptionally stable signal even in heavy wireless traffic by continuously detecting and hopping to the fastest available channel on-the-fly. The K57 RGB Wireless also offers additional connections to your PC via USB wired or low-latency Bluetooth, giving you the flexibility to connect to a multitude of devices including mobile devices and smart TVs.
The K57 RGB Wireless also offers the features that gamers demand to play with a competitive edge. Six programmable macro keys give you an in-game advantage with powerful macros and key remaps, while dedicated volume and media controls let you control your audio without interrupting your game. A detachable palm rest provides comfort through even through the longest gameplay session, while quiet and responsive keys make for effortless typing during both work and play.
Fully customize and command your K57 RGB Wireless with powerful CORSAIR iCUE software, enabling vivid dynamic RGB lighting control along with sophisticated macro programming and key remaps. iCUE unites all the hardware in your setup, allowing you to create fully-synchronized light shows across all your iCUE-compatible CORSAIR devices, including fans, DRAM, keyboards, mice, LED light strips, and more – even dynamically reacting to in-game actions and events when playing iCUE-integrated games.
Equipped with blazingly fast SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS technology and brilliant CAPELLIX LEDs, the K57 RGB Wireless merges vivid RGB lighting with wireless freedom, offering the best of both worlds to PC gamers.
