Creative is adding two new products to its ound BlasterX Pro-Gaming Series of gaing peripherals: the Sound BlasterX Siege M04 and the Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08.
The Sound BlasterX Siege M04 is Creative's professional-grade gaming mouse. Built with a PixArt PMW3360 IR LED sensor and a 32-bit high speed MCU, the Siege M04 boasts a polling rate of 1000 Hz and 12,000 native DPI. Coupled with a low 2mm lift-off distance, the Siege M04 promises precise 1:1 pixel mapping across high-resolution displays without the unwanted accidental movements.
Featuring 7 fully programmable buttons including a dedicated sniper button and a 3-level DPI switch for on-the-fly switching, the Siege M04 comes with internal memory so that users can program sensor DPI level and polling rate, lighting profiles as well as assign buttons according to their gaming needs. Fitted with OMRON mechanical switches underneath the left and right primary buttons, the Siege M04 executes up to 50 million clicks.
Designed for right-handers, the mouse features a non-slide matte surface and rubber-based textured regions. The Siege M04 also comes with the Aurora Reactive lighting system that is fully programmable with up to 16.8 million colours. 11 independent LED segments lined up all around the mouse provide a brilliant All-Edge Light Display - the only mouse with such lighting.
The Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08 is Creative's first high-performance mechanical gaming keyboard. The keyboard with US layout features custom mechanical switches - PRES (Perceive-React-Execute Switch) ) - developed for high actions per minute gaming and high words per minute typing in comfort. These custom switches are co-designed and produced with switch supplier, OMRON.
Boasting 70 million actuation lifespan and a 45g actuation force with silent tactile feedback, the pro-customized switches are ultra responsive and built to last. The PRES switch also features a short 1.5mm pre-travel distance and a total travel distance of only 3.5mm. They are optimized to activate 25% faster so that gamers can fire off commands at higher speed and execute 12.5% more keypresses - and with less error. On top of that, unlike regular switches, each switch on the Vanguard K08 features double cross-point contact technology for fail-safe contacts.
The compact keyboard is designed with 109 fully customizable keys as well as onboard media controls, including a large rotary volume control. Sporting ambient-reactive RGB backlighting, the keys can be individually marked by colour for easy recognition when gaming in the dark or to simply add "war paint" to your battlestation.
