OCZ Elixir Keyboard Breaks Cover
You’d probably associate the name OCZ with PC memory upgrades, but the company are hoping to change that with their new range of Alchemy gaming peripherals. The first product in the range is the OCZ Elixir keyboard. So what can we expect from the newcomer?
Starting with the gaming features there will be 10 programmable keys, each with 3 modes of operation, for a total of 30 commands. There’s also the option to toggle between gaming and standard mode and, to make things comfortable in extended gaming sessions, the keys will be coated in non-slip rubber.
With a typically ergonomic design, the keyboard will feature 7 internet hot keys and 8 media control keys, and an additional USB port.
However, in a refreshing change for the gaming peripheral market it’s actually going to be priced quite low.Although a release date has yet to be specified, the OCZ Elixir keyboard will be price at just $29.99. That makes it a lot cheaper than most of its competitors, such as the Saitek Cyborg and Logitech G11. Whether the build quality will reflect the price remains to be seen, but the OCZ Elixir is a promising newcomer to the gaming keyboard market.
