Corsair K70 MAX

Corsair K70 Max

The Corsair K70 Max is a gaming keyboard with magnetic-mechanical switches. It is available since August 2023.

Gaming Keyboard with Innovative Switches

With the K70 Max, Corsair presents its newest switch innovation: the Corsair MGX switches use magnets to recognize actuation. No physical contact is required. This gives a lot of flexibility to the user, as he can freely define the actuation point anywhere between 0.4 mm and 3.6 mm. It also makes dual-point actuation possibly, i.e., performing two actions within a single keypress.

Well-Approved Design

The first Corsair K70 model was released about 10 years ago. The fundamental design stayed pretty much the same in all those years. Anyone who has ever owned a K70, will immediately feel familiar with the K70 Max. The keyboard comes with dedicated keys to control lighting settings and to switch through profiles. In the upper right corner, we have media controls and volume wheel while status indicators are shown in middle of the keyboard, next to the Corsair logo. With an aluminum frame and robust PBT double-shot keycaps, the keyboard was clearly designed with durability in mind.

The design of the K70 Max is well-tested

Ready to Play

The Corsair K70 Max is designed to be your ultimate battle station. For starters, it is obviously great to have the possibility of configuring an actuation point of your own choosing. In this way, you can try out different settings and optimize your gaming performance. But that’s by far not all the keyboard has to offer. It features full n-key rollover, 8000 Hz polling rate, pretty RGB lighting, a dedicated gaming mode and of course – the possibility to remap any keys you want via iCUE software. Moreover, a magnetic wrist rest is included in the package contents.

"The K70 Max is an expensive keyboard and while it does have some good features, like the MGX magnetic switches with their adjustable actuation distances, it is let down by very poorly optimised stabilisers and a typing sound and feel that leaves a lot to be desired. Build quality could also be better, especially around the USB port. The cable moves around a substantial amount when it is connected. Overall, a disappointing keyboard when considering the price."

"While it's pricey and extremely niche, the most hardcore gamers who are willing to put in major tweaking time will appreciate how the K70 Max RGB lets you create an incredibly customized control setup for each game.
