Actuation You Can Feel And Hear. That’s the promise with Logitech’s G512 mechanical gaming keyboard. Built on the award-winning design of the G413 and G513, the G512 keyboard offers three different key switch choices – Tactile, Linear and new GX Blue.

The new GX Blue mechanical gaming switch option will also be available on the Logitech G513 mechanical gaming keyboard, expanding the lineup of mechanical key switches available on the brand’s keyboards.

Available in carbon black, the Logitech G512 keyboard features an anodized and brushed aircraft-grade 5052 aluminium top case for a slim, premium design with rigid durability. An integrated USB cable connects the USB 2.0 passthrough port to its own input for 100 percent power throughout. Powered by Logitech G’s exclusive Lightsync tech, light and animation effects can be customized across approximately 16.8 million colours, with four lighting zones using the free Logitech Gaming Software (LGS).

On both the Logitech G512 and G513, you get to choose between three key switches to fit personal player preferences, namely Tactile, Linear or the new GX Blue key switch. The Tactile key switch provides discernible actuation for gamers who prefer direct feedback, while the Linear version delivers a smooth keystroke. The new GX Blue key switch provides audible “click” feedback during actuation, for snappy actuation you can feel and hear.

The Logitech G512 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with choice of Tactile, Linear or GX Blue key switches is expected to be available at global retailers beginning June 2018 for a suggested retail price of $152. The Logitech G513 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with GX Blue key switches is expected to be available in the United States, Canada and select countries in Europe beginning June 2018 for a suggested retail price of $211.
