Creative Unleashes Sound BlasterX Siege M04 Precision Gaming Mouse and Vanguard K08 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Creative Technology Ltd today announced two new additions under its Sound BlasterX pro-gaming range - the Sound BlasterX Siege M04 and the Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08 - a precision gaming mouse and mechanical gaming keyboard engineered from the ground up to give professional gamers the winning edge.

Sound BlasterX Siege M04
The Sound BlasterX Siege M04 is Creative's professional-grade gaming mouse. Built with a PixArt PMW3360 IR LED sensor and a 32-bit high speed MCU, the Siege M04 boasts a polling rate of 1000 Hz and 12,000 native DPI. It is capable of tracking every minute hand movement accurately without inherent acceleration and zero cursor prediction, giving gamers precise control. Coupled with a low 2mm lift-off distance, the Siege M04 ensures precise 1:1 pixel mapping across high-resolution displays without the unwanted accidental movements.

Featuring 7 fully programmable buttons including a dedicated sniper button and a 3-level DPI switch for easy-access and on-the-fly switching, the Siege M04 comes with internal memory so that users can program sensor DPI level and polling rate, lighting profiles as well as assign buttons according to their gaming needs. Fitted with OMRON® mechanical switches underneath the left and right primary buttons, the Siege M04 executes up to 50 million clicks flawlessly.

Designed ergonomically for right-handers, the mouse fits snugly within the palm and suits both palm and claw grip players. Its non-slide matte surface and rubber-based textured regions ensure a perfect grip even after long hours of gaming. Fitted with low friction, large surfaced PTFE feet, the Siege M04 provides ultra smooth gliding. The Siege M04 also comes with the Aurora Reactive lighting system that is fully programmable with up to 16.8 million colours. 11 independent LED segments lined up all around the mouse provide a brilliant All-Edge Light Display - the only mouse with such lighting.

Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08
The Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08 is Creative's first high-performance mechanical gaming keyboard. The Vanguard K08 keyboard with US layout features custom mechanical switches - PRES (Perceive-React-Execute Switch) ) - professionally developed for high actions per minute gaming and high words per minute typing in comfort. These custom switches are co-designed and produced with leading global switch supplier, OMRON.

Boasting a whopping 70 million actuation lifespan and a 45g actuation force with silent tactile feedback, the pro-customized switches are ultra responsive and built to last. The PRES switch also features a short 1.5mm pre-travel distance and a total travel distance of only 3.5mm, compared to the standard 2.0mm and 4.0mm respectively on regular switches. They are optimized to activate 25% faster so that gamers can fire off commands at higher speed and execute 12.5% more keypresses - and with less error. On top of that, unlike regular switches, each switch on the Vanguard K08 features double cross-point contact technology for fail-safe contacts; ensuring every command is fired off precisely even if one contact fails.

The low-profile keycaps on the Vanguard K08 ensure swift strokes for comfortable quick input, while the 26-key rollover with anti-ghosting technology eliminates input lag and delivers accurate commands every time.

The compact keyboard is ergonomically designed with 109 fully customizable keys as well as onboard media controls, including a large rotary volume control, for maximum convenience. Sporting brilliant ambient-reactive RGB backlighting, the keys can be individually marked by colour for easy recognition when gaming in the dark or to simply add “war paint” to your battlestation.
