Mechanical keyboards have been around for decades mainly used in areas of the industry where reliability is of the outmost importance and it really goes without saying that those models were as plain as they could possibly be and never featured any of the bells and whistles we see with all the new gaming ones. The funny part is that although mechanical keyboard sales skyrocketed when the very first gaming models appeared in the market it seems that many people still prefer the regular sized ones that lack all the bells and whistles that actually placed them on the gaming map in the first place years ago. Gaming peripherals manufacturers are not oblivious of that fact and so lately we see more and more "plain" mechanical keyboards aimed towards gamers of all ages who are after durability and don't want a keyboard that stands out and takes lots of desktop space. Tt eSPORTS recently updated their Poseidon Z keyboard line with the new Poseidon Z RGB model which basically pairs the all-time classic design and durability of its predecessors with full RGB color illumination for its keys.
“Challenge is the game” highlights the philosophy to bring out gamers’ addiction in gaming and the ambition of reaching to the extreme. Tt eSPORTS, a gaming obsessed division from Thermaltake, is uniting gamers from all over the world in a unique & fascinating eSPORTS culture, inherited the spirits of Thermaltake, is an energetic, powerful, bold and intelligent challenger who never says “no” to the extreme competition. We do not only provide gamers the ultimate gaming gears but also fulfills the passion to achieve the ultimate success. Thermaltake has been a well-known brand in the gaming & DIY market for PC Chassis, Coolers and Power Supplies PSU for many years. The brand personality of unique, aggressive, vivid and stylish makes Thermaltake an expert in creating exciting things and fascinating environment for gamers and enthusiasts. Tt eSPORTS inherited the brand personality with unique and creative design by observing users’ behaviors and requirements. The fan cooling design on Tt eSPORTS Challenger keyboard demonstrate the brand spirit. It is the worldwide first keyboard with fan cooling function that could dry your hand sweats and blow tension away during cut-throat competition.
The relatively recent partnership between Tt eSPORTS and Kailh seems to be going very well so once again the new member of the Poseidon Z line of mechanical keyboards wears TT Certified gold plated mechanical blue and brown switches by Kailh which feature a lifetime of up to 60 million actuations. The Poseidon Z RGB mechanical keyboard also features a 32bit ARM Cortex-m0 micro controller unit, 512Kb of onboard memory (to store the 5 available profiles), full RGB LED backlight illumination (16.8 million colors with 5 levels of brightness and several effects), 6-Key and N-Key rollover, 1000Hz polling rate, full key anti-ghosting and the ability to program every key as a macro (5 profiles x 102 macros). We have seen a few Poseidon keyboards by Tt eSPORTS in the past but I’m indeed curious to see just how nice the new RGB version looks.
