TECWARE Launches Phantom Elite Modular Mechanical Keyboard And 9 New Switches

SINGAPORE – October 5th, 2018 – TECWARE, a global PC gaming peripherals and components provider, has launched the Phantom Elite Mechanical Keyboard- the second addition to the Phantom Series- along with 9 new mechanical switches.

TECWARE Phantom Elite Backlit Mechanical Keyboard (without switches installed)

The Phantom Elite is essentially identical to its predecessor, the Phantom, boasting per-key RGB lighting customization, modular switch sockets, double-shot ABS keycaps and a sturdy alloy baseplate to last for years. What is different is that the Phantom Elite comes without any mechanical switches included, to allow gamers the freedom to explore various switch combinations and arrangements on a single keyboard. The Phantom Elite is packaged with all necessary tools and instructions for easy installation.

To complement the Phantom Elite, TECWARE has introduced 5 different Gateron switches and 4 different Kailh box switches, each offering different characteristics in terms of feel, sound and actuation force. Gateron switches offer users an alternative to Cherry MX switches, while Kailh Box switches feature a box-frame stem design that keeps dust out and prevents debris build-up - ultimately allowing longer switch lifespan. The switches are sold separately in packs of 110 pieces.

Pricing & Availability:

Available next week, through authorized local dealers and distributors in select markets worldwide.
