A statement from the company said the new keyboard had multiple switch types, including Clicky, Linear and Tactile, to cater to the needs of current and aspiring e-sports professionals.
The PRO X is claimed to be built to provide esports professionals and competitive gamers with competition-grade reliability and features that would enhance gaming without getting in the way.
“Gamers, especially pros have different preferences when it comes to keyboard switches,” said Ujesh Desai, vice-president and general manager, Logitech gaming.
Broken Blade, a gamer with TSM, a group that participates in the League of Legends championship, was quoted as saying: “I loved the original PRO keyboard, but really wanted a version with clicky switches. Now that I have a PRO keyboard with blue switches, I can’t wait to use this in our next tournament.”
The PRO X builds on the pro-approved Logitech G PRO Gaming Keyboard’s space-saving tenkeyless design.
It is claimed to be easy to pack for tournament travel, freeing up table space for low-sensitivity mouse movement.
"In addition, a detachable Micro-USB connector ensures that the cable won’t break at the connection point when bouncing around in a bag and transported between events. The three-pronged design features support arms for an easy, reliable connection. The keyboard also features customisable RGB lighting which can be stored to an onboard memory profile," the company said.
The PRO X is available in Australia from this month onwards at an RRP of $249.95 with user-swappable GX Clicky, Linear or Tactile switches. Packs of 92 replacement GX Clicky, Linear or Tactile switches can be bought online for $89.95.
