Logitech G512 is the new mechanical keyboard of the Swiss manufacturer, with the occasion which also presents new switches, called GX Blue, and a new software, G Hub, soon available in early access for beta testers.
Logitech G512 mechanical keyboard is the younger brother of the already known G513: it lacks the memory foam footrest and keycaps for the keys used most often when playing. For the rest is the same – same anodized and brushed aluminum frame, same RGB lighting with Lightsync technology, USB port pass-through and so on. The keyboard can be configured with all three switches produced by Logitech so far – the already known Romer-G Tactile, the Romer-G Linear and, indeed, GX Blue.
The GX Blue switches are the “Logitech version” of the Cherry MX Blue, with the same pronounced and old-school auditive feedback. The switches will also be available on the G513 – move in a certain sense due, since as we said it is basically the same keyboard.
Logitech G Hub will be a new incarnation of the current Logitech Gaming Software. “It will offer the same functions, but with a more modern and easy-to-use interface and enhanced capabilities”. Software development is still in the early stages, and Logitech hopes that with the help of the tester community it will be able to offer an even better experience. We do not know exactly when the Beta will start; for those interested, however, the dedicated page is already active here.
The Logitech G512 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with a choice of Tactile, Linear or GX Blue key switches is expected to be available from this month for a suggested price of $99.99; while the Logitech G513 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with GX Blue key switches is expected to be available in the United States, Canada, and select countries in Europe beginning June 2018 for a suggested retail price of $149.99.
Logitech G5123 is already available to buy on Amazon, select from Romer-G Tactile or Linear switches. The price is $142.91 for the Tactile and Linear version will cost $149.99.
