We already had a chance to see the same EVGA Z10 keyboard at a couple of previous shows and we were quite keen for it to officially become available. Thankfully, EVGA has managed to get it done and the new Z10 keyboard will join EVGA's X3, X5 and X10 series of gaming mice.
Built with enthusiasts in mind, as EVGA was keen to point out, the new Z10 keyboard measures at 185x470x35mm and weighs 1.48kg, which should keep both the keyboard and the magnetically-attached customizable wristpad well attached to the desk. It also comes with a customizable red backlight and a customizable LCD display which can be set to monitor EVGA's Precision XOC or ELEET X stats, custom game timers and several other functions.
As noted, the EVGA Z10 keyboard uses mechanical Kailh switches with N-key rollover, has 60 million keystroke lifespan, 1000Hz ultra polling rate, e-key button for disabling windows keys in gaming mode, multimedia keys, volume/brightness, one USB 2.0 port on each side of the keyboard, and braided USB cable.
The EVGA Z10 mechanical gaming keyboard is already available directly from EVGA's store with either Kailh Brown or Kailh Blue switches, both priced at US $149.99. Currently, EVGA runs a neat promotion giving away a free EVGA X10 Carbon gaming mouse with every purchase of the Z10 gaming keyboard. The keyboard is backed by a 3-year warranty.
