PC Master Race rejoice! Two brand new gaming keyboards from ROCCAT have arrived in Europe and Asia and they’re a sight to behold. Check out the specs & price for the Vulcan 121 AIMO and the Vulcan 122 AIMO.
Any PC gamer worth their salt knows that you’re only as good as the hardware you use. Well, ROCCAT (Turtle Beach‘s Germany-based PC division) has designed and begun shipping two new PC gaming keyboards from their award-winning Vulcan series. The Ash Black Vulcan 121 AIMO and the Arctic White Vulcan 122 AIMO.
Vulcan 121 AIMO
The new Vulcan 121 AIMO looks to improve on what its Vulcan 120 predecessor accomplished with the Titan Switch Tactile. The 121 boasts a new and improved version of their propriety “Titan” innovation with the Titan Switch Speed. The Titan Switch Speed boasts a shortened 1.4mm actuation point (3.6mm travel distance), which helps it react over 30% faster than standard switches, pushing the boundaries of speed without sacrificing precision. The switches are actuated with a hefty 45g of force to minimize accidental key presses, making the keyboard perfect for gaming.
Vulcan 122 AIMO
The Vulcan 122 AIMO may look slightly familiar. That’s because it’s the newest version of the Arctic White Vulcan 120 model that earned a slew of awards in its day. The 122 features ROCCAT’s own Titan Switch Tactile mechanical switches with an actuation point of 1.8mm for a total travel distance of 3.6mm. It is well balanced between crispness and speed – 20% faster than standard – and is silent, yet with a noticeable bump.
Both the Vulcan 121 AIMO and Vulcan 122 AIMO also include the following features:
A magnetic detachable palm rest
Low-profile design for improved ergonomics
ROCCAT’s unique AIMO lighting engine – Each Vulcan keyboard switch features an individually configurable, long-life LED capable of displaying 16.8M colors in a variety of special effects, and its functionality grows based on the number of AIMO-enabled connected devices. The AIMO lighting reacts organically based on usage, presenting state-of-the-art illumination scenarios without the need for configuration.
To celebrate their release both the CEO of Turtle Beach, Juergen Stark, and Turtle Beach’s GM of PC Products, René Korte, had this to say:
“ROCCAT’s Vulcan series keyboards look and feel fantastic and give PC gamers an edge over the competition because they are faster, which is why we believe they are the best gaming keyboards available,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “Since its debut the Vulcan has already become one of the top three best-selling gaming keyboards in Germany and a best-selling product in its price tier, and has received numerous awards, including the 2019 iF Design Award for its product category, as well as the latest ‘Best Gaming Keyboard’ accolade from WIRED.”
René Korte, General Manager of PC Products at Turtle Beach added, “We introduced the original Vulcan 120 AIMO at Computex 2018, and the immediate praise it earned from attendees and reviewers alike was a powerful testament to the great product it is. Our Vulcan series keyboards are sleek, precise, and beautiful gaming tools designed to give you an edge over the competition. Adding the new, even faster Vulcan 121 AIMO and Vulcan 122 AIMO variants was the answer to what fans have been asking for, and now they have more options to find the right Vulcan to fit their style.”
