SteelSeries Announces 7G Professional Gaming Keyboard.

SteelSeries, a leading manufacturer of innovative professional gaming gear, today announced the debut of the new 7G keyboard, the latest addition to the company's growing portfolio of gaming peripherals. The SteelSeries 7G is a professional gaming keyboard aimed exclusively at professional and competitive gamers.

The SteelSeries 7G sets a new industry standard for gaming keyboards by allowing users to perform a new level of detailed and advanced key combinations. By utilizing the most powerful PS/2 buffer-system ever created for a gaming keyboard, the 7G redefines “anti-ghosting" by supporting as many simultaneous key press commands as there are keys on the keyboard. The keyboard features both PS/2 and USB connectors.

The combination of the powerful PS/2 buffer-system and 18K gold-plated mechanical switches, means that the SteelSeries 7G offers more Actions-Per-Minute than any other keyboard in the world. The keyboard was built specifically to offer gaming grade response times as well as an unmatched durability with a switch lifetime of 50 million operations.

The SteelSeries 7G keyboard is equipped with audio ports for headphone-out and microphone-in and features two port USB hub. In addition, the keyboard offers essential gaming features such as the compact SteelSeries Media Controls, which allows the user quick access to volume, mute and other audio controls.
 
“Somewhere the industry took a wrong turn when it came to gaming peripherals. It became more important to add colorful lighting and features that have no impact on professional gaming, than to create high quality products, “ says Tino Soelberg, Head of R&D for SteelSeries. “With the 7G keyboard, SteelSeries is following our company line of no-BS / no-nonsense, and to deliver a product that does what it's supposed to do - help players perform better and faster in-game".

“SteelSeries 7G was designed for players competing in the traditional eSports platforms, such as Counter-Strike, Warcraft III:TFT, World of Warcraft and many others," says Jonas “Johnny R" Bollack, SteelSeries development team. “A keyboard has to help the player communicate with his computer by being responsive, durable, reliable and comfortable to use. SteelSeries 7G does just that."

All keys are operated at 60g, with a travel time of roughly 50% compared to standard keyboards, making the SteelSeries 7G ideal for long gaming sessions. The mechanical tactile system is ergonomically designed to ensure ease-of-use, and the no-click switches makes the SteelSeries 7G both comfortable and pleasant to use.

The new SteelSeries 7G will be released in early December at an MRSP of $149.99 USD.

It's there in all its glory and seem to work wonders for the shader clocks.

Oh nad 3.6ghz quad and sli'd cards at stock - scores as follows:

3DM01 - 67k
3DM03 - 62k
3dm05 - 23.5k
3DM06 - 18.4k
AQM3 - 195k

Ramp the CPU to 3.75ghz and 3DM06 hits 19.7k, AQM3 = 208k - The CPU is the bottleneck lol :)

Looks like I might have to have anohter go with POS NVidia SLI 775 boards (XFX maybe?)

IMHO stay away from the Reference design (as used by XFX, ECS and BFG) believe it or not I really think the P5N32 you hated with such a passion is the best implementation of 680I

CPU bottlenecking like CRAZY there

Im really tempted to pick up an E6850 and a GT and let rip :(

Seems to me though mate that those are the boards that perform better with Quad - Dinos used XFX.... nuff said.

Although for dual core you might be right a P5N-32E Plus may be the better option - can they be modded?

Everything can be modded :twisted:

Thing is though- basically for a Quad a high multi is the way to go, because FSB will never be as high, and in terms of 3DMark, only `06 will benefit from a quad- everything else will be happier with the MHz that come with a dually.

Okies loads off topic - but what mods would be recommended for P5N-32E SLI Plus?

a look at GTL ref voltage wouldnt hurt.

Droop for sure, VCore, VDIMM, possibly a cap + choke mod for the CPU, although that could be a challenge.

Water on the NB, possibly the SB too.

Yea...and this is the best 680I mobo..... nVidia hang your head in shame.
