When gamers, or anyone for that matter, shops for a mechanical keyboard, they usually have to choose if they want clicky, linear, or tactile switches. Logitech has announced two new tenkeyless mechanical gaming keyboards, one of which features user-swappable GX Clicky, Linear, or Tactile switches.

“Gamers, especially pros have different preferences when it comes to keyboard switches. That’s why we wanted to design and build a new PRO keyboard that featured swappable switches. By giving gamers the ability to choose the right switch to match their style of play, we’ve delivered a new level of performance that is optimized for each individual’s unique needs.”

Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager, Logitech Gaming
