The CYKEY features high-quality craftsmanship and a stylish design to immerse users in the gaming world. Compact and space efficient, the keyboard’s 75% design fits on any size desk or perfectly on nerdytec’s Couchmaster. Its RGB lights include over 20 pre-installed lighting modes that shine through keycaps, giving gamers the freedom to customize their color setup and enjoy a futuristic aesthetic.
The keyboard is also hot-swappable (users can swap switches without soldering on the keyboard) with the newest Gateron’s G Pro 3.0 Yellow switches, which offer unmatched responsiveness and precision with every keystroke. These switches allow users to mix and match nerdytec’s keycaps with new ones without altering the keyboard’s integrity.
The CYKEY also incorporates exclusive features: two control knobs, which gamers can position in any of four slots, pre-set for brightness, volume, zoom, or desktop switching. Many more shortcut keys can be programmed thanks to the keyboard’s built-in Quantum Mechanical Keyboard (QMK) chip, which uses VIA to customize functionalities, RGB colors, and other effects—users only have to initialize the keyboard with VIA to seamlessly switch between PC and Mac.
“We had thought of designing a keyboard for gamers to unleash their full potential by giving them control of every aspect, from its style to its performance. So, we unleashed the machine—the CYKEY. Gateron’s latest generation switches let users benefit from precise strokes when gaming,” said nerdytec CTO and Lead Product Developer Roman Jean Charles Jakob. nerdytec CEO Chris Mut added, “Our vision is to expand the nerdytec product range and become the favorite brand of all enthusiasts who value innovation, quality, and a unique user experience. The Couchmaster products and the CYKEY are just the beginning, that’s for sure.”
The CYKEY will be available in mid-November but can be pre-ordered starting October 19 at nerdytec.com or Amazon with a recommended retail price of 129 euros. Prices on Amazon may vary.
