MSI unveils the Vigor GK80 and GK70 gaming keyboards

MSI has launched the Vigor GK80 and GK70 gaming keyboards as the latest additions to its Gaming Gear line of peripherals.

With a strong focus on illumination using MSI’s exclusive Mystic Light, both the Vigor GK80 and GK70 allow gamers to fully customise their setup down to each individual key.

Both models have a premium base crafted out of anodised aluminium, giving them a solid feel, and their floating key design makes them easy to clean.

Replaceable keycaps are included in two varieties – 12 with a rubber textured finish and 4 with a metal surface to help gamers instantly find the right keys.

Both keyboards also feature Cherry MX RGB LED switches and exclusive hotkeys linked to MSI’s Gaming App when paired with specific MSI GAMING series components.
