Logitech G debuts PRO X 60 compact gaming keyboard

Compact gaming keyboards are popular among gamers who travel a lot or just prefer more space on their desktops. Logitech G has announced its first 60% keyboard and the newest addition to its PRO-series lineup: the PRO X 60 professional-grade compact gaming keyboard.

The Logitech G PRO X 60 compact gaming keyboard features GX Optical switches and can be ordered with tactile or linear switch configurations. Optical switches actuate using light for faster gameplay and eliminate the debounce of mechanical switches that can delay keystrokes. In addition, dual-shot PBT keycaps with RGB lighting and pre-lubricated switches offer a smoother typing and gaming experience.

A smaller 60-percent keyboard gives gamers more space on their desktops for mouse movements, as well as moving your controls closer together. Not only that, it’s easier to position and easier to carry to and from tournaments. Developed with feedback from pro gamers, the keyboard is already garnering rave reviews from gamers:

“The PRO X 60 is the perfect fit for players who need a keyboard that can adapt to any setup and condition. It’s also super easy to carry around when traveling. I love it.”

Here’s what pro gamer Emma Choe had to say about the new KEYCONTROL functionality:

“I love the original PRO keyboard, but now that my game has evolved, I wanted something smaller to allow for more space on my desktop for my mouse without losing all the key functions. Now that I have the PRO X 60 with KEYCONTROL, I have more room for flick shots, all while being able to tailor my layout so I don’t miss any keys. I can’t wait to use this in competition.”
