Corsair has announced a slew of new gaming keyboards, including new variations on its new mechanical keyboard the Vengeance K70, as well as a couple of new gaming mice: the Raptor M40 and M30.

The new K70 models sport a variety of combinations of LED backlighting, chassis colour and key-switch type, offering an alternative to the standard model that uses a black anodised finish, red backlighting and Cherry Red key-switches. Now options for blue backlighting, gun-metal or plain aluminium (silver) chassis and Cherry MX blue and brown switches will all be available, for the same price as the standard keyboard.

The K70 is a replacement for the K60, featuring all-mechanical key-switches, backlighting and a tough aluminium chassis. Multimedia keys, a volume wheel, and contoured WASD keycaps are also included. The backlighting can also be fully programmed and the keys support 20-key rollover for ensuring there is no delay when multiple keys are pressed at once.

Joining the K70 is a new tenkeyless variant called the Vengeance K65. This looses the numpad of the larger models, as well as backlighting, and features a removable cable for easy storage when taking the 'board with you. Impressively it's set to be priced at only around £65.

As well as new keyboards, Corsair also debuted a couple of new mice at Computex 2013. These fall into the 'mainstream' Raptor brand and consist of the Raptor M40 and Raptor M30, with both featuring optical sensors.

The Raptor M40 looks like the more expensive Vengeance M40 and includes the same adjustable weights system. However it looses the aluminium base - though gains an illuminated Corsair logo - and uses a 4,000dpi optical sensor.

Meanwhile the Raptor M30 is another step down, including an unspecified game-tuned optical sensor and on-the-fly dpi switching.
