For the past couple of years, Thermaltake has always been about these two things. Modding Desktops and having the ultimate RGB products in the computer market. CES 2018 is just around the corner and this year too Thermaltake has geared up with their new and improved lineup featuring both budget and premium products. But this year the company is mainly focusing on their RGB based products. Let’s see whats being offered by Thermaltake at CES 2018.
Brand New RGB Keyboards & Mouse at CES 2018. YAY!
At CES 2018 Thermaltake is going to launch their new Tt eSports RGB keyboard & mouse lineup. In the case of the gaming mouses, TT has their new Talon mouse combo and IRIS optical RGB, but the most interesting one that has caught PCB BD’s eyes was the all-new premium Nemesis Switch Optical RGB. In the exact words of their website, this mouse will have ”Revolutionary patent design key switch control system”. We’ll see how that works out when released. Aside from the revolutionary technology this mouse will have the most advanced optical sensor you can get on a mouse which is PIXART PMW-3360 optical sensor with a DPI range up to 12000. You can learn more about this mouse here. If you have time you might also want to go through our article on top five gaming mouses, Atul wrote a few months back.
What about the keyboards?
Now, what good is a mouse without a keyboard? And what good is a gaming keyboard without RGB? To answer that particular question Thermaltake will be launching their Brand new Tt eSports gaming keyboard series. The entry-level Challenger Edge Pro will feature RGB but will not be a mechanical keyboard. Neptune Pro Series keyboards will be mechanical but will not feature RGB.
The Neptune Elite series will feature both mechanical switches and RGB switches, but that’s not what we are eyeing for here.
Introducing Thermaltake’s newest premium RGB mechanical keyboard series the X1 RGB Cherry MX.
With two models, blue and silver speed, both will feature 16.8 million RGB color and 12 dynamic lighting effects.
These TT RGB Sync Compatible keyboards will also have USB and Audio pass through. How will it stack up against other brand’s premium products? We’ll find out when released.
”RGB on your ear! Why not?” Says Thermaltake
We can easily declare 2017 the ‘RGB Year’. Every peripheral you can think of got the RGB treatment. Yes, even headsets! Following this trend, Tt eSports is gonna release their own RGB headsets in the name of Shock Pro series. Sharing almost the same specification, Shock Pro will feature 2.0 sound where Shock Pro 7.1 will feature 7.1 virtual surround sound.
“Well, you need some cooling down below too!” Shows concern about our bottoms!
Back in November, Thermaltake announced they’re first ever gaming chair featuring actual fans spinning under the cushion.The X COMFORT AIR professional gaming chair comes with a state-of-the-art air-cooling system designed to keep gamers cool in the heat of battle. With a 3-fan speed controller, gamers can adjust their cooling preferences to suit their gameplay and environmental needs on-the-fly. Although this idea sounds ridiculous, this will certainly help to keep our butts dry. Since we haven’t tested the chair, we can not tell you how it works and performs. The current price of this chair is about 499 U.S dollars, and you can buy it here from Thermaltake’s website, or you can buy it at a discount, for 419 U.S dollar from this amazon seller.
Other things to look out for:
- Massive 20 RGB Gaming Notebook Cooler
- iRGB Power Supply Units
- And of course all the build in the premium casings.
There are other products such as PSUs, Chassis and water cooling kits will be on display. But since they were announced and shown in Computex 2017 and only improved version of previous products, we are not covering them.
