Here comes another mechanical keyboard from Cooler Master. The company describes this new model, the QuickFire Pro, as the "next incarnation of the extremely popular QuickFire Rapid Mechanical Gaming Keyboard." True to its name, the Pro looks more fleshed-out than its predecessor—not least of all because it doesn't forgo the all-important numpad.
The QuickFire Pro also features a matte finish, a 1-ms response time over USB, a removable braided USB cable, red LED backlighting behind "common game keys," and an option to disable the Windows key in "game mode."
What of the key-switch design, you ask? Apparently, Cooler Master will offer all four of Cherry's most popular MX switches: red, black, brown, and blue. You can see our Cherry MX color-coding cheat sheet in our latest keyboard review. Cooler Master says switch availability will "[depend] on region," though, so some folks may have more limited options.
Look for this bad boy in stores later this month.
