SteelSeries has just announced the availability of the SteelSeries Apex Gaming Keyboard. Made up of beautiful form and carefully optimized functions, the SteelSeries Apex features unique enhancements to the keyboards layout from low-profile keys, specially designed raised macros rows for quick access, and multiple layers of customization in colors and intensity. With a suggested retail price of USD 99.99, the Apex is available now at local retailers in-store, online and in the SteelSeries Web Shop.

The SteelSeries Apex Gaming Keyboard goes beyond just choosing from 16.8 million color options: it features SteelSeries Active-Zone illumination, a visual support tool that allows the user to independently customize colors – up to 8 levels of illumination intensity in each of its 5 zones – with up to 4 different customizable layers per zone.

The Apex combines an adjusted layout with key enhancements that bring fluidity to the way the user moves around the keyboard. These enhancements include:

  • Raised macro-keys along the top and left side, which provide faster and more precise macro-combinations
  • The addition of two small tactile bumps on the W-key to provide a faster return to WASD
  • Superior anti-ghosting that supports simultaneous key presses in 20 of the most used gaming keys on the Apex and Apex [RAW]
  • An enlarged space bar and added directional keys that support features that improve comfort and reaction time
  • A SteelSeries key that allows the user to easily adjust brightness and disable the Windows key with no software required
  • Two swappable feet that allow the user to adjust the keyboard’s angle to what is most comfortable

Powered by the SteelSeries Engine, the Apex can be completely remapped, including the twenty-two macro keys found above the function keys and along the left side of the keyboard. With the capability to program up to four separate layers of the keyboard, users now have more than 500 keys for instant control, multiple layouts, profiles, and commands that can be chosen and customized for any game.
