OCZ today announced the Sabre OLED multimedia keyboard for advanced gaming and customization complete with intelligent management software.
"The OCZ Sabre Keyboard offers the best of both worlds when it comes to OLED technology and a truly functional yet affordable gaming keyboard,?" commented Eugene Chang, VP of Product Management at the OCZ Technology Group.
Sabre is OCZ?s first foray into premium-level peripherals. The nine dynamic OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) user-programmable hotkeys help manage time and efficiency while surfing the web, gaming, emailing, and CAD applications or any avenue the user sees fit. The OLED keys can convert any digital image or text into distinctive icons, reminding the user of the personalized shortcut. Additionally, the remaining keys are backlit with glowing amber LEDs and blue side lighting, perfect for users that prefer darkened rooms or gamers frequenting LAN parties.
The Sabre?s proprietary software allows the user to map sets of simple or complex command tiers to each OLED and holds the power to store limitless layers of shortcuts and macros. Driven by this intelligent software, the nine OLED display keys change their icons and command tiers as the user jumps from one application to the next. Loading a First Person Shooter or application triggers a programmed sub-grid of weapons and tool commands to instantly appear.
Furthermore, each "home" command of the key can then activate a sub-grid of your favorite alt/ctrl and menu shortcuts individual to each program or application.
The Sabre features an ergonomic design with keys lasting over 5 million cycles and will remain comfortable even through prolonged usage. The Sabre is "Plug and Play" using a USB 2.0 interface accompanied by additional software to program the keyboard and is compatible with Windows XP (SP2 or later) and Windows Vista.
