Roccat Vulcan II Max

Roccat Vulcan II Max

The Roccat Vulcan II Max is a mechanical keyboard packed with many features. It is available since October 2022.

Vibrant Illumination and Dual-LED Technology

Roccat created an impressive lighting scenery to set the Vulcan II Max apart from other mechanical keyboards. The manufacturer uses flat keycaps to expose the transparent housing of the switches. This leads to a particularly bright and vibrant illumination. The Vulcan II Max comes with a translucent wrist rest which reflects the keyboards lighting and creates quite a unique atmosphere. Moreover, there are 24 keys with support for dual-LED technology. Dual-LED means the keys have two integrated LEDs, so that the primary legend and the secondary legend of the key can be lighten up individually.

Convenient Optical Gaming Keyboard

The Roccat Vulcan II Max has more to offer than just nice illuminations. Its switches are optical, meaning they use a signal of light instead of physical contact. You can choose between linear Titan II Optical Red Switch and tactile Titan II Brown Switch. Moreover, the keyboard provides convenient media controls to handle media playback and volume. The keyboards height can be adjusted by folding its feet out in one of two available levels. A smooth gaming experience is ensured by 1000 Hz polling rate, full n-key rollover and 4 MB onboard profile storage.

"Die Roccat Vulcan II Max ist DIE Tastatur für jeden Fan vom Farbspektakel rund um RGB, der sein Gaming-Setup mit einem optischen Highlight abrunden will. Aber auch in der Nutzung begeistert die Premium-Tastatur durch tolle Haptik, nützliche Steueroptionen für deine Medieninhalte sowie hilfreiche Tastenzweitbelegungen für etwaige Zusatzfunktionen. Ob einem der ganze Spaß jedoch den hohen Preis sowie gleich zwei USB-A-Ports wert ist, gilt es gut abzuwägen."

"Roccat seemingly has no intention of relaxing efforts to push RGB into every possible corner of its peripherals, with the Vulcan II Max proving it. Dual-LED switches light up the slick keycaps, and the comfortable silicone palm rest, too. Well suited for gamers, but only if they have the desk space to spare and two USB ports to power this colorful beast. Creating custom macros isn't as straightforward in the Swarm companion app as it could be, but there are plenty of available keys for it to be a non-issue."
