Yesterday, Logitech let loose a brand new gaming keyboard for you to consider. The Logitech G512 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is a sleek, high performing mechanical keyboard that offers three different types of switches so you can tailor it to your needs.

Besides the tactile and linear switches, the new GX Blue key switches gives a nice audible click that's music to many gamers' ears. And for those considering the G513 keyboard, the GX Blues can be put on that as well.

The G512 has a nice looking brushed aluminum top and its slim design should fit nicely on most desks. If the grey aluminum is not your style, it will also come in Carbon black.

Of course, no current keyboard would be complete without some sweet, sweet lights as the G512 has four lighting zones and can be customized to how you would like it to be. 

Also announced, G Hub will be the new software that will eventually replace the Logitech Gaming Software providing the same functionality but with a better and easier UI as well as new features. 

The Logitech G512 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard will be available this month for $99.99.

In addition, Logitech G also announced that it will be providing early access to a new software experience named G Hub.
