PC gamers on the lookout for a new keyboard will want to check out what Turtle Beach’s Roccat brand has cooking with the Pyro and Magma.
When you talk about PC gaming peripherals, you’re referring to what’s become a pretty big market. After all, there are a bunch of companies producing mice, keyboards, headsets, and everything else today. And of course all of that is aimed at gamers, and usually loaded with features.
One of the first brands on the scene though, was Turtle Beach. Did anyone reading this not have at least one TB headset? Today the company has a full-on PC gaming peripheral brand under its umbrella with Roccat. And that latter house has just unveiled a pair of new keyboards. If you like colors, you’re probably gonna dig ’em.
Pyro is one of the most feature-packed mechanical gaming keyboards for under $100. The Pyro’s new design is reinforced by a premium brushed metal top plate, offering gamers a sleek, robust, and stylish mechanical keyboard. Pyro uses TTC’s linear (red) switches with a 2.0mm actuation point, 45g operating force, and a totaltravel distance of 4.0mm for a keystroke that feels both precise and strong. The Pyro’s switches are tested to 50 million keystrokes lifetime for a responsive and durable gaming experience. Advanced anti-ghosting technology also ensures all simultaneously pressed keys are registered.
Like the Magma, the Pyro is equipped with a detachable palm rest. It also has the Vulcan series’ fan-favorite volume wheel for quick and easy audio control. Pyrofeatures ROCCAT’s AIMO lighting engine with per-key illumination in 16.8 million RGB colors. AIMO reacts organically to your usage with vivid lighting displays out of the box, without the need for extensive configuration. It also syncs with compatible AIMO-enabled products to create desktop illumination that flows from device to device.

Since the launch of the AIMO lighting engine in 2017, ROCCAT has focused not only on delivering high-performance PC gaming equipment, but also on bringing the RGB experience to new levels.

With 16.8 million RGB color illumination, gamers can enjoy a vivid and immersive lighting experience.

Magma also features silent membrane typing thanks to high-quality rubber dome keys. Keystrokes feel both responsive and reliable. Advanced anti-ghosting technology ensures gamers can press all the most-used keys simultaneously, when reacting in the heat of battle.
