Gamescom presents not only software but also offers some stands the right hardware to do so. One of the most well-known manufacturer of gaming products and Roccat are also on site. Besides the well-known portfolio is joined by a newcomer, with his stealth design appears to correspond to what one is accustomed to visually Roccat.As owner of a Wireless Mouse Roccat Pyra I come into the enjoyment of Roccat specially developed easy-shift function, which with this keyboard has finally found its way in the gaming keyboards.
Roccat Isku would positively shock
The Hamburg-based manufacturer
You wonder like what meanings behind the names. The most direct answer to the Roccat Isku lies in the Finnish language, because there does “Isku” translates to “shock”. The question arises, what we want to shock the keyboard?
It is not the backlight, which is fixed on the dim blue and six different levels can be. The five macro keys for the assignment of individual commands will not justify the name.

There is communication between two peripheral devices, which is so new about the device that they want one so shocking positive.
Roccat Talk is beside the easy-shift function, the highlight of the device. Roccat Talk enables communication of the first mouse and keyboard together.

This requires only three additional keys that have been placed in the normal keyboard layout on the buttons, the player tends to use less normally, for example, the Caps Lock key. The operation is similar to the CTRL or ALT key. Can also be assigned the functions mitliefert in the driver software, the Roccat. Really a lot of thought has made the selection in which one can prove directly from the beginning, many popular games and their functions.
You're not seeing, the Roccat Isku has over other gaming keyboard takes very little keys, but thanks to a lot of different allocation options with more features than comparable competitive products. Cost is the Roccat Isku almost 80 € and will be released in the second quarter of 2012.
For someone who already has a Razer mouse, perhaps even addressed the Roccat Kone + or the Roccat Pyra, should seriously consider purchasing the Isku. The current idea would be a clear reason to buy
