SteelSeries has announced a pair of keyboards that feature "OmniPoint" switches that are fully adjustable. The Apex Pro and the Apex Pro TKL allow gamers to tune the distance required for each key to register being pressed. According to press information, this allows games to play more accurately and quickly.
The Apex Pro’s Patented OmniPoint adjustable actuation switches uses magnetic sensors to allow gamers to choose the exact sensitivity of their keys. Powered by SteelSeries Engine, the Apex Pro can automatically change sensitivity when starting up a game like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and another for everyday productivity tasks. The magnetic sensors also provide a significantly faster response time than traditional mechanical switches, making the Apex Pro the world’s fastest and most responsive keyboard.
Alongside the new OmniPoint switches, the new Apex Pro line sports an integrated OLED Smart Display. The Smart Display not only allows for instant notifications from apps like Discord, Spotify, and games like CS:GO and Dota2, but also allows users to customize their actuation point directly from the keyboard. While users can experience greater customization through SteelSeries Engine software, it is not required to customize the sensitivity of the keyboard.
The Apex Pro series will be available in full-size and ten-keyless (TKL) versions. The Pro will be available starting June 11th for $199.99 and the Apex Pro TKL will be out this fall for $179.99.
