If you are on the lookout for a compact gaming keyboard with unique features, then Roccat has got your wish granted. The German computer accessories manufacturer has released the first small gaming keyboard in the Vulcan series with some features that have never been seen on a keyboard before.
The small size of the Vulcan II Mini brings big innovation to the fore that people who are creative, perform editing or professional gamers are going to find ultra-resourceful. The robust accessory is definitely going to set a new precedence for the compact gaming keyboard market.
The demand for compact TKL (Tenkeyless) keyboards sans the numeric keypad is high – for example the likes of Logitech G915 TKL or Razer V2 TKL boards. Smaller keyboards in the 65 or 60 percent class are also gaining popularity like the Cooler Master SK622, K70 Pro Mini Wireless Razer Blackwidow V3 Mini or the Huntsman Mini. The Roccat Vulcan II Mini in the 65 percent form factor retains the arrow keys and weighs just 500 grams.
On top of everything else gamers cherish, the keyboard has the first ever Dual LED Smart Key technology. This brings 30 multi-function Smart Keys having Dual LEDs to keep a tab on the active status of secondary functions. This way, users can program a secondary function layer on the mini keyboard to retain the functionality of a standard-sized keyboard.
The Vulcan II Mini also gets the brand’s new TITAN II Optical Switches which is an evolution of the optical switch. That means the keyboard gets the light speed actuation and 100 million keystroke durability rating. It will also make the accessory compatible with third-party keycaps, so you can pair it with you old gaming keyboard’s keycaps too.
The mini keyboard is crafted out of anodized aluminum, thereby making it very durable. That 1.8 m long USB-C to USB-A 2.0 cable is detachable too. The keyboard can store up to 5 profiles with custom RGB lighting and button assignments which is great for geeks. Roccat Vulcan II Mini is available for pre-order at a price tag of $149.99 in two color options – Ash Black or Arctic White. The look can be further customized by adding third-party cross-mount keycaps or colorful USB-C cables. The mini keyboard is all set to launch on September 29, 2022, and it’s going to ship worldwide after that time.
