CES 2019: Mad Catz strike back

Mad Catz have shown off a S.T.R.I.K.E. gaming keyboard at this year's CES in Las Vegas.

The new S.R.I.K.E. 4+ mechanical keyboard features Cherry MX mechanical switches, Chameleon RGB lighting and the ability to enhance the experience by using the company's FLUX application. Via FLUX, users are able to customize the lighting on the keyboard and even thinker with things like the peripherals report rate.

Meanwhile, the S.T.R.I.K.E 2+ features custom-designed membrane that Mad Catz claims is able to mimicking the reliability and precision of a mechanical keyboard "but without the associated noise". The S.T.R.I.K.E. 2+ boasts 26-key anti-ghosting and comes integrated with the company's Chameleon RGB lighting, which can be customized using the FLUX app.

“Earlier this week we were pleased to announce the shipping of our G.L.I.D.E. Gaming Surfaces, the perfect partner to out new range of R.A.T. mice. We’re delighted to grow our range of professional PC hardware yet further, with the new range of S.T.R.I.K.E. gaming keyboards,” said Selena Chang, Director of Sales and Operations for Mad Catz Global Limited.

“We remain seriously committed to the PC gaming community, aiming to deliver an entire eco-system of high quality hardware, designed to use the latest technology and engineering prowess to provide a winning edge. We look forward to shipping these products soon and to announcing further product in the year to come.”

No word on Australian availability of pricing, but Mad Catz say the new keyboards will go on sale later in 2019.

PC World Evaluation Team Review - MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
