Our Mechanical Keyboard Day 2021 goes into the twelfth round! This week we are giving away the Gigabyte AORUS K1 mechanical keyboard.

AORUS K1: Essential gaming keyboard

With the K1, Aorus focuses on the essentials: A sleek, frameless design that takes up comparatively little space on the desk. In return, dedicated keys for macros or multimedia have been omitted and no wrist rest is included. In combination with the "floating keys" design and the matte black color scheme, this results in a simple, but also chic look.

Gaming features

Speaking of optimal space allocation: The braided USB connection cable can be routed out of three different openings thanks to an integrated cable management system on the bottom and back. Gamers also benefit from always reliable inputs thanks to 100% anti-ghosting and N-Key rollover.

And even though there are no extra keys for controlling the media and macros, you don't have to do without these functions: Both can be executed via alternative key assignments and flexibly programmed in the software called "Aorus Engine". This also allows the setting of the RGB effects as well as colors to be selected and synchronized to all RGBFusion-compatible devices.

CHERRY MX RED for gamers

The Gigabyte Aorus K1 is equipped with our CHERRY MX RGB Red switches and is thus clearly aimed at gamers. Because of the linear switching characteristic and the forward travel of only 2 millimeters, they trigger pleasantly easily and allow quick reactions. In addition, the switches guarantee 100 million keystrokes without quality loss!
