k70 Mk2?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just saw this on amazon when looking at keyboards

Is this old news? It looks to me like a k95 without the lightbar or macros... Still not sure if there has been any official mention by Corsair and I can't find information on it anywhere online. Curious what people think. 

Edit: There is also a white version

eh, all im missing out on is what looks like 1 button, and a light-up corsair logo rather than a shiny metal one

Wish I had waited the two weeks it took for corsair to come out with the rgb version of the k70 instead of getting the red one when I did... Have you ever tried the mx speeds in those keyboards? They feel like a crisper mx red which I love but with a quieter and I think more pleasing bottom. Man I really love the mx speeds that corsair uses. ^_^

Yeah I would too. Although if I were to upgrade from my k70 I'd rather get a k95 so I'll probably wait until they release a new k95... That way I could better justify it

You could always "accidentally" spill water on it when cleaning lol

I guess though if you want to justify it I would consider speeds to be a pretty significant upgrade over reds for gaming, and if you get the white it will come with their double shot PBT keycaps as well as better reflections for brighter lights and an arguably better aesthetic depending on what you have. I personally like the standard color more but the better keycaps might make it worth it. Everything else looks like a k95, and after looking at it for a while it has a bigger wrist wrest and the same bigger media keys as a k95 as well as the rgb logo.

I'm glad they went with a bigger wrist rest because the one that comes with the regular k70 is so small that my wrists just go past it anyways lol. I have a huge hyperx mouse mat so I'd probably just end up taking the rest off since imo the keyboard looks really sexy against a black mousepad without the wrist rest.

Yeah pretty much everything is identical to the k95. That's one gripe I have with my current k70 is the media keys are hard to see and use if you're looking at them from an angle, but the k95 fixes that. They still haven't officially announced anything from what I've seen but I guess we'll see soon if Amazon leaked it.
