Logitech has announced a gaming keyboard it believes provides the perfect response and customisation for even the pickiest of PC gamers.

The Logitech G910 Orion Spark RGB Mechanical Keyboard utilises proprietary Romer-G mechanical switches, which the company claims offer 25 per cent faster actuation than any other. They are also more durable and have intelligent illumination.

In addition, the keyboard features Arx Control app support, which means that iPhone and Android users can see information presented on their devices, giving them an idea of performance stats, in-game intelligence and media controls. The keyboard even has a pullout tray on the rear to house the phone while in use.

The Arx Control SDK is available for developers too, so more applets could be designed around Logitech's system in future, even by third-party developers. Valve is currently looking at possible integration for Steam and its games, for example.

Illumination comes in the form of RGB lighting for every key. Each of them can be lit differently using a palette of 16.8 million colours.

There are also nine programmable G-keys and up to three different profiles can be stored, for three different main games.

The Logitech G910 Orion Spark will be available from November in the UK, US and Europe, priced at £159.
