Computex, Taipei, 6th June 2018, ROCCAT introduces a brand-new design story with its new Vulcan mechanical keyboard, combining striking aesthetics and powerful mechanics. Featuring the self-developed Titan Switch Tactile, the addition to ROCCAT’s portfolio not only stands out by its appearance, it also offers the most swift and responsive keyboard in ROCCAT’s line-up.
“The most important thing about a mechanical keyboard are its switches, we wanted to showcase them” says Andreas Jost, Head of Industrial Design at ROCCAT Studios. Design played a decisive role in the development of the switch, with a transparent housing offering insight on its mechanism in combination with ultra-light keycaps. The Titan Switch Tactile is also the perfect companion for ROCCAT’s latest RGB lighting eco-system the AIMO. Developing the switch meant ROCCAT could also improve its performance. ROCCAT debounced the switch by reducing the mechanical shattering during actuation thanks to high-quality materials and componentry. This allows the firmware to reliably identify keystroke signals 20% faster than competing keyboards.
The materials chosen for the Vulcan also reflect this desire for the most premium product. Its anodized aluminum top plate offers a robust and durable structure, while the professional grade mechanical media controls add to the authenticity of the overall design. The Vulcan also boasts a magnetic removable wrist rest and adjustable rubberized feet offering comfort for any gamers’ gaming sessions. Developing the Vulcan was the opportunity for ROCCAT to create a pure performance driven keyboard focusing on the core gamers’ necessities, sleek design, and competition-ready engineering.
While the product will be available in all relevant channels late Q3, it is already available for pre-order on Amazon, and on the ROCCAT shop. The Vulcan will be available in three different models, the Vulcan 80 at £119.99 Vulcan 100 AIMO at £139.99 and the Vulcan 120 AIMO at £149.99.
