SteelSeries Introduces New Apex Pro TKL Series Keyboards

SteelSeries, the global leader in gaming and esports peripherals, today announced the launch of the evolution of the keyboard that started it all: the revolutionary and critically acclaimed Apex Pro TKL. Imagine the acceleration of the fastest electric cars… but in a keyboard. The Apex Pro TKL Series keyboards give gamers an unfair advantage by combining OmniPoint 2.0 technology with the tournament-winning TKL form factor to create the world’s fastest keyboard for esports and aspiring professionals.

Originally launched in 2019, the Apex Pro TKL took the world by storm, giving gamers a taste of fully customizable controls for the first time, the biggest quantum leap in gaming keyboard innovation since the creation of the first mechanical switches. The first-generation Apex Pro TKL, a favorite and consistent device used by countless professional gamers, achieved victories around the world, having originally established a foothold among competitive gamers and those who demanded only the best performance from their peripherals .

The difference between winning and losing can be determined by speed and a matter of milliseconds. In 2022, SteelSeries developed OmniPoint technology to be even faster. Gives gamers of all types a choice of 37 activation levels, from just 0.2mm to 3.8mm with a response time of just 0.54ms. OmniPoint 2.0 switches respond 11x faster than standard mechanical switches and activate 10x faster when set to 0.2mm. Users can choose between feather-light strikes and ultra-deep intentional throws per key and per program and game. Whether gamers want a super-lightweight WASD for FPS games or an ultra-fast QWER for MOBAs, the Apex Pro TKL and TKL Wireless can automatically load users’ custom profiles when used with SteelSeries GG software.

In addition to its speed, the OmniPoint 2.0 switch also features 2-in-1 keystrokes, allowing gamers to associate 2 actions with one key. Then walk and run, pull out a grenade and throw it or pull off the perfect combo, all in one effortless keystroke.

The esports-ready TKL design provides a cleaner desktop space and also provides more room for large, sweeping mouse movements, so game-winning moments remain unimpeded. For the first time ever, the Apex Pro TKL will be untethered and available with the next generation of powerful Quantum 2.0 Dual Wireless technology. Gamers using the Apex Pro TKL Wireless can choose between ultra-fast 2.4GHz lag-free wireless technology or Bluetooth 5.0 for multi-device connectivity. With a battery life of 40 hours, the Apex Pro TKL Wireless can play harder and longer than ever before – without being tied to cables.
