Gigabyte is probably known mostly for their motherboards and graphics cards, but they do make a lot more. The newest addition to the Gigabyte family is the Force K83 mechanical gaming keyboard built with a minimalistic approach and quality components.
The Gigabyte Force K83 comes with either Red or Blue Cherry MX switches to give that tactile feedback and durability that most gamers like and prefer. With a rating of over 50 million keystrokes, even the most demanding gamers should be satisfied. The keyboard naturally features an N-key rollover to prevent any ghosting
By removing design aspects that don’t provide any function at all, Gigabyte managed to keep the minimalistic approach. Additional functions can be access through the FN key and it also features a Win Lock key with dedicated LED indicator to lock out an accidental launch of your start menu. I do however question where that key actually is located and whether it interfere with the general operation. On the product photo above it is located right next to the spacebar while the product photo below shows it one key further up and as a replacement for the actual second windows key. I personally believe the bottom photo to be the accurate, as it would be illogical to remove the ALT key altogether. It’s too important.
The Gigabyte Force K83 is built with an island-style that makes the keys stand up above the keyboard, allowing you to clean it a lot better. The bottom features anti-slip feet to make sure that it stays where it should, even during the most demanding and hectic gaming situations.
Gigabyte didn’t reveal a launch date or price at this time.
