Logitech G PRO X Keyboard Features and Specifications

The PRO X Keyboard comes packed with features that help improve your performance. As a Tenkeyless (TKL) keyboard, its size will suit any gaming desk or setup with a small physical footprint. With ROMER-G mechanical switches, it comes with improved key registration that is 1.7 milliseconds quicker than the standard mechanical switching of previous models. Keystrokes also only require 1.5 mm for actuation, giving you a 25% faster response time than other competitive mechanical switch keyboards.

Every key in the Logitech G PRO X uses dual contact points on the switches to reduce errors such as double-click registration. This makes it one of the most reliable gaming keyboards available and you can ensure it will continue giving you the best performance as its reliability is tested for up to 70 million keystrokes.

PRO X Layout

Logitech built the PRO X on the back of the already successful G PRO space-saving TKL platform’s design. Making it easier for gamers to pack up the keyboard and take it to and from tournaments while providing more space for low-sensitivity mouse settings. With onboard RGB lighting profiles included and a detachable micro-USB connector, the PRO X delivers greater reliability and you can adapt the switches to your own unique requirements.

Additional Features include:

  • A 26-Key rollover design for fast and accurate move actuation.
  • Keystroke Signal Processing (KSP) with 10 milliseconds faster response times than competitors.
  • LIGTHSYNCH RGB technology for next-gen lighting synchronization customizable for different content and games.
  • Full key assignment customization to disable unused keys that reduce typing errors.
  • Button macros for F1 to F12 keys where you can assign complex moves using G HUB profile manager.

For a reliable connection, the detachable USB uses a three-pronged design that includes support arms to maintain a clear connection between the keyboard and PC. The base comes with three different angle settings for the perfect setup and uses rubber feet to provide complete stability during gaming sessions.
