Why is RGB associated with gaming

CORSAIR Releases K57 RGB Wireless Gaming Keyboard

FREMONT, California (USA) August 20, 2019 - CORSAIR, a global leader in components and peripherals for gamers and enthusiasts, today announced the new CORSAIR K57 RGB wireless gaming keyboard. The K57 RGB Wireless is the first CORSAIR gaming keyboard to be equipped with CAPELLIX RGB LEDs and SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS. These two revolutionary technologies ensure a uniquely bright, fascinating RGB-LED lighting of individual keys and an extremely fast and ultra-stable wireless connection.

The individual keys of the K57 RGB Wireless are set in scene by a lively, dynamic RGB background lighting, which thanks to CAPELLIX RGB LEDs ensures maximum performance. The CAPELLIX LEDs, which were used for the first time in the CORSAIR DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR4 main memory, are up to 60 percent brighter and up to 60 percent more efficient than conventional LEDs. As a result, the K57 RGB Wireless offers a long battery life of up to 35 hours on a single charge, even when the RGB lighting is switched on. So you can simply enjoy the light show without having to constantly recharge the keyboard.

Fewer cables mean more freedom - the K57 RGB Wireless is the first CORSAIR keyboard to feature lightning-fast SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS technology. The K57 RGB Wireless offers an incredibly low latency of less than 1 ms and a range of almost 18 meters, so you can simply play where you like it best: at your desk, on the couch ... SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS supports Intelligent Frequency Shift (IFS), which ensures a stable signal even when the network is heavily used by always determining the fastest available channel and switching to it at lightning speed. The K57 RGB Wireless can not only be connected to your PC, but can also be connected to any mobile device or smart TV via low-latency Bluetooth or a USB cable.

The K57 RGB Wireless also offers numerous functions that give gamers a decisive advantage in the game. Thanks to six programmable macro keys, you benefit from powerful macros and key remapping, and with the dedicated volume and media controls you can regulate your audio quality without having to interrupt the game. A removable palm rest ensures a high level of comfort even during long gaming sessions, while the quiet keys with a low response time enable comfortable typing while working and playing.

Configure and control your K57 RGB Wireless according to your wishes: With the powerful CORSAIR iCUE SOFTWARE you can control the lively, dynamic RGB lighting effects as well as program macros and key reassignments. iCUE integrates all of your hardware components so that you can synchronize the lighting effects across all iCUE-compatible CORSAIR devices such as fans, DRAM, keyboards, mice or LED light strips - with iCUE-integrated games, the components even react dynamically to actions Events in the game.

With its super-fast SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS technology and brilliant CAPELLIX LEDs, the K57 RGB Wireless offers two significant advantages for PC gamers: lively RGB lighting effects and powerful wireless technology.
