Gigabyte Announces New Input Peripherals
Now, we've certainly heard of this Ultra Durable stuff before, but this new brand seems to be geared towards GPUs rather than motherboards. In Gigabyte's words: The latest Ultra Durable VGA technology features five high quality components to provide low GPU and memory temperature, high overclocking capability, and low power switching loss. Additionally, the company is also debuting its newfangled Silent-Cell cooling technology, which features a series of crimping layered fins with Aluminum nodes and a brand spanking new zero interval precision process. In short, this device hopes to "rewrite the history of silent cooling."
The highly styled GK-K6800 keyboard arrives with a glossy coating, a number of multimedia hot keys, a dedicated volume wheel and a wrist support pad. As for the super-thin GK-K7100, it measures just 9mm thick and features 18 multimedia hot keys, a glossy surface design and "notebook-like key travel." Gigabyte hasn't fessed up to any prices or ship dates as of yet, but you can investigate each announcement in detail below.
