Folks looking for a minimalist mechanical gaming keyboard are spoilt for choice lately. Hot on the heels of the HyperX Alloy, G.Skill has announced the Ripjaws KM570 MX. Unlike the Ripjaws KM780R we reviewed that was packed to the brim with features, the KM570 MX skips the showy extras for a basic design using Cherry MX switches in a more-or-less standard layout.
We weren't huge fans of G.Skill's software for the KM780R. That won't be a problem for the KM570 MX because it's completely configurable without software, which should make programming the new keyboard's macro function an interesting task. Some folks may appreciate the ability to configure the KM570 MX's red LED lighting on a per-key basis, too.
