Review: Roccat Vulcan II Max


We talked about it when it was released here, we just received the new keyboard from Roccat: the Vulcan II Max. A superb keyboard with the elegance of the old Vulcan while adding some interesting new features.

In short, what is this new Vulcan worth? Answer here!

Technical specifications:

With its new keyboard, Roccat offers us this time, a reference with 106 keys. We will also find the mechanical and optical switches Titan II which promise us 100 million activations. Two types of switches are available among the linear and tactile of Roccat. Besides, we have the right to the classic options ofEasy-Shift [+], theanti-ghosting N-KEY (NKRO) 100% or the AIMO lighting of the brand. It has an internal memory of 4 MB allowing it to manage 5 different profiles. Of course, like most keyboards on the market, it has a polling frequency of 1 GHz. The Vulcan II max is also equipped with a 32-bit ARM Cortex M3 processor.

Regarding its dimensions, we have here a rather massive keyboard since we find 463 x 236 x 33.5 mm for a weight of 1.04 kg without wrist rest and 1.3 kg with the latter. This one is totally translucent to let the colors of the RGB LEDs pass through. Moreover, this palm rest is removable for those who wish to remove it.

Here, make way for an aluminum faceplate for better quality and durability.
