According to the manufacturer, the prices range between 129 and 149 euros. In addition, replacement packs with Clicky, Linear or Tactile switches will be available at a price of 49 euros.
Before the end of this month, the renowned hardware manufacturer Logitech plans to launch a new mechanical gaming keyboard that will even meet the demands of professional e-athletes. And to underpin this, Logitech has engaged several testimonials from the digital sports segment who are promoting the new G Pro X.
“Clicking switches” as the greatest wish
You can wish for a lot, including clicking switches. At least that's what the e-athlete Broken Blade from the North American team SoloMid (TSM) says. Since the manufacturer Logitech alone does not seem to have made a click, the hardware forge is bringing three different key types onto the market: Clicky, Linear and Tactile. All connected with the release of the new mechanical gaming keyboard G Pro X, for which a design without a numeric keypad is used.

Logitech explains about the creative process: “The Pro X gaming keyboard was developed to meet the highest demands of the best esports professionals and to offer them, like all other ambitious gamers, a reliability and functions at tournament level that theirs Improved gaming experience and performance.

According to the manufacturer, professional e-athletes themselves also have an influence on the development process.

This is why the new G Pro X gaming keyboard was also developed with interchangeable switches. The choice of button allows players to improve their own playing style and adapt the hardware to it. Dispensing with the number pad makes the G Pro X a compact gaming keyboard that is easy to transport and does not waste any space on the desk - or at the competition site. Less space for the keyboard also means: More space for the mouse.

Customizable lighting profiles are almost mandatory for high-priced gaming keyboards. The Logitech G Pro X will also have this feature: the PRO X has adjustable RGB lighting that can be saved on profiles in the internal memory.
