MSI VIGOR GK71 Sonic Gaming Keyboard with Sonic Blue Switches Now Available

MSI recently released its latest keyboard switch – the MSI Sonic Blue. Together with the new switch, MSI releases the new Vigor GK71 Sonic with Blue switches. If the name Vigor GK71 Sonic sounds familiar to you, that’s because MSI already released this keyboard last year. But it was with MSI’s Sonic Red switches, with 35g “light operating force”. The Sonic Blue switches have a 45g actuation force and a clicky feel. It’s now available on Amazon.com here. You can check more details about MSI’s mechanical gaming keyboard with the new Sonic Blue switches from the official news release below.

Introducing the MSI VIGOR GK71 SONIC gaming keyboard with MSI’s latest switches – MSI SONIC BLUE

MSI, a leading global computer hardware brand for gamers, announces the release of its new gaming keyboard – VIGOR GK71 SONIC – BLUE SWITCHES. It is an extension of the current VIGOR GK71 SONIC gaming keyboard, which previously only had RED SWITCHES. However, as of today, it is now available in the clicky BLUE SWITCHES version. Featuring one of the world’s lightest mechanical switches, the MSI Sonic Blue allows users to dominate the competition with faster reaction times and light key presses. The VIGOR GK71 SONIC also offers a comprehensive set of features to enhance the gaming experience, including the built-in MSI ClearCaps for vivid per-key RGB, a dual touch volume knob, dedicated media keys, and a premium memory foam cushion wrist rest for superior comfort.

Powered by MSI Sonic Blue Switches with Vivid RGB Lighting

The VIGOR GK71 SONIC now offers a variety of switch types; the MSI Sonic Blue and MSI Sonic Red. Both are designed in collaboration with the prominent switch maker, Kailh, and have inherited the concept of a lightweight yet responsive keystroke. The switches are designed to provide smooth, seamless, and instantaneous responses with a 45gf operating force and a clicky feel for each keystroke. This minimizes finger fatigue and enhances comfort & ergonomics during gaming sessions. The keyboard is equipped with MSI ClearCaps, which feature a unique transparent dual-layer design that allows light through the keycaps to enhance lighting for vivid and stunning per-key backlit RGB illumination. The lighting effects can be adjusted by onboard presets or by MSI Mystic Light software.

Solid Aluminum Frame and Premium Wrist Rest

The VIGOR GK71 SONIC features a Hybrid 6+N key rollover and 100% anti-ghosting. The keyboard automatically detects the currently pressed number of keys and switches between 6 key or N key rollover. The top of the keyboard is constructed with aircraft-grade durable aluminum alloy for durability and reliability. The bottom of the keyboard comes with an X-shaped cable routing system, which prevents your peripheral cables from stretching and pulling.

Users can also control media playback with the smart dual-touch volume wheel from either the top or the side of the knob. There are also dedicated media keys if physical buttons are preferred.
