Roccat has introduced a new mechanical keyboard, which for the first time relies on the specially developed Titan Switches. These keys are to allow a particularly fast and precise keystroke.
For the Vulcan 120 AIMO, manufacturer Roccat’s test is based on a design that is rather simple but at the same time quite unusual.
The technology of mechanical keyboards has developed little in recent years, at least from the perspective of the German hardware manufacturer Roccat. That’s why it offers a novel Titan Switch instead of the otherwise most commonly used switches from Cherry or Kailh.
At the price of currently around 160 euros, you will receive a mechanical keyboard that relies on an unusual, yet simple design as well as high precision and above all wants to set itself apart from the numerous competitors by the speedy keystroke.
In addition to the freely configurable via driver software and individually adjustable RGB lighting for each button, Roccat also delivers the Vulcan with the following features:
- mechanical Roccat Titan switches with “debounce” technology for faster signal acquisition
- separate multimedia buttons including volume scroll wheel and gaming mode button
- removable palm rest
- integrated macro and settings memory
- RGB backlight AIMO with 16.8 million colors
- Roccat Easy-Shift technology for easy multiple assignment of keys
- Button programming and lighting configuration via Roccat Swarm software
In addition to the Vulcan 120, the keyboard is also available in the versions Vulcan 100 AIMO without palm rest (about 150 euros) as well as Vulcan 80 without palm rest or multimedia keys and with only blue individual button lighting instead of RGB lighting (about 130 euros).
Roccat praises the Vulcan as “a composition of innovation, design, longevity and light art” and as a “milestone” for the manufacturer. Whether the keyboard can fulfill this promise and is also such a milestone for players, we clarify in our test.
