SteelSeries Announces APEX M750 Mechanical Keyboard
The M750 features SteelSeries QX2 switches, aerospace aluminum and exclusive SteelSeries Engine Apps for Discord and more
Today, SteelSeries announced the APEX M750, the ‘complete package’ mechanical keyboard, delivering durability in a beautifully simplified package. The M750 brings new QX2 mechanical switches, per key RGB lighting and SteelSeries Engine Apps to gamers, giving them the ultimate combination of beauty, performance, and customization.
The APEX M750 features SteelSeries’ QX2 linear mechanical gaming switches to deliver ultra-fast and consistent gameplay. Their low-force, linear actuation point also deliver a whisper-quiet response and have a guaranteed lifespan of 50 million key presses.
Building gaming’s first mechanical keyboard is a key part of SteelSeries history, and the Apex M750 honors that legacy by staying true to our original mantra: built like a tank. The keyboard’s frame is built with aerospace aluminum to provide a rock-solid base for the mechanical switches. The use of series 5000 aluminum alloy, gives the Apex M750 zero-flex stability.
“Gamers have strong and vocal opinions about keyboards; and it’s a crowded market with vast options of different switches, features, and materials, but there are always compromises. That is what makes the Apex M750 different – we didn’t compromise on any of it, instead, we listened and are delivering the complete package,” said SteelSeries CEO, Ehtisham Rabbani. “With the launch of the new keyboard, we are proud to bring new and first-to-market SteelSeries Engine features to gamers, like the Discord App, ImageSync and more.”
New SteelSeries Engine Features
The launch of Apex M750 kick starts several exciting upgrades in SteelSeries Engine. The powerful software suite, with the most intuitive, easy-to-navigate UI, features new Engine Apps delivering reactive lighting, chat notifications and unparalleled customization.
Discord Chat Integration
SteelSeries Engine now features chat notifications in partnership with Discord. This new feature allows real-time chat notifications from Discord to be synced to SteelSeries illuminated products. Streamers, gamers, and esports players can light up the new Apex M750 with customizable notifications that indicate new messages, mute status and more.
New SteelSeries Engine Apps also include:
- ImageSync is the easiest way to create complex lighting, allowing gamers to simply upload any animated GIF and automatically converting it into a customized lighting effect
- Audio Visualizer syncs the illumination on the M750 (and all SteelSeries illuminated products) with any music or playlist of the user’s choice
- Gigantic, the popular strategic shooter, is now integrated with SteelSeries Engine, delivering real-time, in-game reactive illumination and haptic feedback across all SteelSeries-compatible devices
SteelSeries Engine users can still experience:
- PrismSync dynamically syncs multi-color lighting effects between the M750 and all other Prism-enabled gear
