The Vulcan II Mini also debuts ROCCAT’s second generation TITAN II Optical Switches which have ultra-fast actuation and incredible durability with a 100 million keypress life cycle. The Mini’s TITAN II Optical Switches are red/linear switches designed to have a smooth and instant actuation, perfect for competitive games that demand speed, precision, and rapid keystrokes. The TITAN II Optical Switches are compatible with most third-party keycaps allowing for maximum personalization, while having an improved transparent housing and lubrication for even smoother keypresses. The Vulcan II MINI is available now at www.roccat.com and participating retailers worldwide for $149.99 MSRP (£129.99/€149.99).
"Improving our beloved Vulcan PC gaming keyboard design is always a daunting prospect, but ultimately always ends with a highly rewarding product like the Vulcan II Mini," said René Korte, ROCCAT Founder and General Manager of PC Peripherals at Turtle Beach. "With the Mini, we are once again introducing and improving a range of innovative new features, and now including the ability to customize elements. The Vulcan II Mini is small in size but big in performance and personality."
Since the launch of the original Vulcan, ROCCAT has grown its signature line of PC gaming keyboards to include a variety of models that have innovated on design and features, always moving the needle forward. ROCCAT’s Vulcan keyboards are known for their clean, modern, and sleek RGB-driven aesthetics without compromising on performance. Beyond Dual LED Smart Keys and TITAN II Optical Switches, gamers can save up to five profiles of custom RGB lighting, key reassignment and more directly on the keyboard. The Vulcan II Mini’s anodized aluminum backplate ensures structural integrity and sets the stage for ROCCAT’s AIMO RGB lighting technology, which produces vibrant lighting displays right out of the box that can sync with other compatible AIMO-enabled products.
The Mini has double the RGB lighting refresh rate of standard gaming keyboards, producing smooth and vibrant effects for a next-level, immersive desktop lighting experience. The detachable USB-C cable makes it easy to take the Mini on-the-go and offers another option for personalization. ROCCAT’s Vulcan II Mini comes in Ash Black or Arctic White, and PC gamers can add their own personal touches with third-party cross-shaped mount keycaps or equipping colorful custom USB-C cables (sold separately).
