   There are currently three types of keyboards in the market, the all-time-classic no thrill ones which only offer the basics of what one would expect from a keyboard (just like the old days), feature-rich ones which are usually aimed toward gamers since they offer extra macro keys, individual key illumination, removable wrist rests, dedicated media controls, various color themes, control software (and more) and those that fall right in between the first two since they also offer some of the features we mentioned. G.SKILL may be well known and established because of their high quality and performance memory kits but they've also ventured in the gaming peripherals market with some very interesting products. Today on our test bench we have their latest RIPJAWS KM570 MX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Cherry MX Red switches.

   Established in 1989 by PC hardware enthusiasts, G.SKILL specializes in high performance memory, SSD products, and gaming peripherals designed for PC gamers and enthusiasts around the world. Combining technical innovation and rock solid quality through our in-house testing lab and talented R&D team, G.SKILL continues to create record-breaking memory for each generation of hardware and hold the no. 1 brand title in overclocking memory.

   The RIPJAWS KM570 MX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is currently available with Cherry MX Red, Brown, Blue and Speed Silver switches (up to 50 million actuations) so it's quite obvious that G.SKILL aims to cover everyone in the market (at least when it comes to switch selection). G.SKILL has also implemented individual red LED illumination for the keys along with 7 effects/patterns, full N-Key rollover (100% anti-ghosting), ARM Cortex-M0 32-bit processor with built-in memory, on-the-fly macro recording, dedicated volume control keys and 5-level contoured keycaps. For good or bad the KM570 MX is a driverless keyboard so it doesn't feature control software but we don't really mind as long as we can control all its functions without one (in this case it seems we can). So let's check and see what G.SKILL has been up to lately in the gaming peripherals market.
