Logitech today announce their next gaming keyboard, the Logitech G910 Orion Spark RGB mechanical keyboard with smart RGB illumination and Arx Control. The G910 Orion Spark will feature Logitech’s new Romer-G mechanical switches, which can offer 25 percent faster actuation than any other mechanical switch, improved durability and intelligent Illumination.
“This keyboard is the culmination of years of ongoing development by our engineering team, incorporating feedback from gamers and eSports athletes to develop a next-generation mechanical key,” said Vincent Tucker, director of Logitech gaming. “Our team was charged with developing a keyboard that truly improves the gaming experience, and Orion Spark delivers.”
G910 Orion Spark mechanical keyboard is meant to combine lightning response, accuracy with a performance purpose design.
Andy Dinh, owner of Team Solomid:
“My players love the new switches. They are so excited about them, that the whole team is using them in the League of Legends World Championship.”
Romer-G Mechanical Switches
The G910’s mechanical switches won’t be found on any other keyboard. With an actuation point of only 1.5mm they register key presses 25 percent quicker than other mechanic switches. They have improved durability lasting over 70 million keystrokes and should last up to 40% longer than other mechanical keyboards on the market.
The light on every key can be customised individual allowing gamers 16.8 million colours to play with for each key one by one. Keys can be marked to keep track of commands and change colours to match your set up. Setting lighting by game is also possible. Each key has its own LED to allow precise optics and an even illumination across all keys.
The lighting in every key of Orion Spark can be individually customized from a palette of 16.8 million colours. You can mark keys by colour to keep track of spells and other commands, change colours to match your setup, or set lighting by game. The lighting is centrally located within each switch and is directed by precision optics, to ensure that the lettering on each key is evenly illuminated.
Arx Control App
Arc Control is a new app from Logitech which works with all Logitech Gaming Software. It allows information to be passed to your mobile phone like you would with a Logitech keyboard LCD screen. In game information, system performance and media controls are just some of the things you can do with the Arx Control app.
An SDK will be available for game developers to create and customise applets to bring more apps to the Arx Control system. Valve have been given early copies to explore integrating Steam. Arx Control will be available for both Apple iOS and Android
