MSI Reveals New Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

MSI has been working on growing its range of peripherals lately. They have announced the launch of the Vigor GK50 low profile mechanical gaming keyboard. 

This is something we got a first glance at back in Computex in 2018. Back then was the first time we saw the Cherry MX low profile mechanical keyboards making their way into the market. 

How Is The Vigor GK50 Built?

The main difference between the Cherry MX keyboards is that MSI’s new keyboard will use Kailh low profile white switches. Thanks to the Kailh low profile white switches, the keyboard gives some nice tactile feedback and a satisfying click when you type as we’d expect from a high-end mechanical keyboard. 

The keyboard has the low travel equivalent of blue switches – 34mm of travel – which means you get a lower actuation point. This means quicker key presses and faster response times. 

MSI’s Vigot GK50 keyboard is built with an aluminum top plate which means it’ll rival other high-end mechanical gaming keyboards in terms of build quality. As expected, MSI has used its Mystic Light RGB lighting system on the keyboard. You’ll get to experience per-key RGB lighting as well as plenty of customization options to tweak it to your needs. 

On the underside of the keyboard, is a neat little cable routing channel to help you tidy up your peripheral cables and keep your desk free of mess. 

This is all powered by MSI’s Dragon Center software – something that we’ve already seen on MSI’s other peripherals and hardware. 

How Much Will The Keyboard Cost?

MSI has also released pricing figures for the MSI Vigor GK50. In the US, the mechanical keyboard will be priced at $89.99 and in the UK, it’s priced at £89.99.
