COMPUTEX 2014, Taipei, Taiwan— June 2, 2014 — Last January, Corsair® captured the excitement of the gaming world with the MX RGB Project – a prototype keyboard demonstrating the brilliance of Cherry MX RGB mechanical key switches with customizable per-key 16.8 million color animated backlighting.

In addition, program effects such as background, foreground, action, and type lighting to run concurrently with up to ten levels of brightness. These customization options let a gamer match PC system lighting, find gaming keys faster, and provide critical visual feedback for executing in-game objectives.
