Roccat announced a new addition to their line of mechanical keyboards today. Designed for those working on small desks who demand a full keyboard layout, the Roccat Suora is completely frameless, knocking several centimeters off the edges of the keyboard when compared to the standard frame Roccat uses for their other keyboard offerings. To keep the size down while maintaining the macro functionality of the keyboard, the Roccat Suora can be set to Game Mode, switching the six button Insert/Delete cluster into a six button macro pad.
The keyboard is built with a metal housing and features blue backlit Cherry MX Brown keyswitches. The keyboard supports 1000Hz polling rate and full NKRO anti-ghosting technology. The new Roccat Swarm drivers handles all the macro and lighting functionality, a set of drivers I liked quite a bit based on my review experience with the Roccat Ryos MK FX Gaming Keyboard. All in all, the keyboard is a very adult looking board that definitely feels a lot more appropriate in an office than the standard gaming keyboard, while still packing the full gaming keyboard feature set.
The Roccat Suora is set to launch in July 2016. The keyboard will carry an MSRP of $99.99 USD, quite a bit cheaper than Roccat’s other compact gaming keyboard, the Roccat Ryos TKL Pro.
