The global leading maker of gaming peripherals and accessories, SteelSeries has announced the upcoming launch of its new mechanical gaming keyboard at CeBIT 2010 – SteelSeries 6Gv2, which modeled after SteelSeries 7G. SteelSeries 6Gv2 comes equipped with 18K gold-plated mechanical switches and USB connectors, offering quicker response times and advanced key combinations aimed for more Actions Per Minute.

“We’ve been watching professional teams such as Fnatic, SK Gaming, Evil Geniuses and others win grand slam tournaments with the 7G as their weapon of choice and have seen it recognized as one of the most impressive performance keyboards on the gaming market,” commented Bruce Hawver, CEO of SteelSeries. “Keeping that rockstar mentality, we designed the slimmed down SteelSeries 6Gv2 to pack the same punch without compromising response time, durability or performance.”
