Logitech has announced a new keyboard for esports professionals to meet their competitive gaming requirements. Its called the Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and we take a look at the key features and specs of the keyboard.

Logitech says that it has collaborated with the biggest e-sport athletes to develop the keyboard. Unlike most mechanical keyboards that come with Cherry MX switches, the Logitech G Pro sports its own Romer-G switches. These switches are designed specifically to deliver a pro-grade performance with faster responsiveness. The switches also deliver high performance in terms of precision and speed. In fact Logitech claims that these switches offer 25% faster actuation than the standard mechanical keyboards of the day.
Another big highlight of the Logitech G Pro is the improved Keystroke Signal Processing (KSP). This feature reduces response time by up to 10ms – a crucial factor that can give users an edge over the competition. Thanks to the powerful combination of the Romer-G switches and the KSP, the keyboard can withstand over 70 million keystrokes. A 26-key rollover also helps to avoid the problem of ghosting.
The keyboard also comes with detachable Micro-USB connector, making it easy to carry around. The compact tenkeyless design also makes it easy for gamers to pack for tournament travel but the downside is that users will have to do without the numpad and volume dial. A steel back plate adds stability to the keyboard while rubber feet keeps the keyboard stable during gaming.
Logitech G Pro is an RGB-backlit keyboard capable of letting users choose from 16.8 million colors. Each individual key light can also be customized as well. Onboard memory options allow users to store patterns for later use. The Romer-G switches also give the added advantage of even RGB lighting effect thanks to the integration of feature in the switches.
