Thermaltake is one company that has a lot of name recognition with hardware enthusiasts. Now Thermaltake is looking to expand that recognition with a new line of stuff aimed at gamers. Called the Tt eSPORTS brand, new products under this name will be aimed at the pro-gamers and the wannabe PC pro-gamers out there.
From launch, three product types will feature Tt eSPORTS branding: Challenger series keyboards, Black series gaming mice, and Shock series headsets.
The Challenger keyboards, pictured above, will feature RGB back-light keys, many, many macro keys, the first cooling fan to keep your hands cool (yup, for real), and two gold-plated USB ports. Thermaltake says "the clever design is to dry your sweaty hands caused by the rise of adrenaline, highlighting also your smart choice and characteristic", whatever that is supposed to mean.
The first Black series mouse will have almost unmatched 4000 dpi laser sensor, a 9 button configuration, and a weight set to allow you to customize to your preference. "The Black Element gaming mouse is definitely the crucial point for game," Thermaltake says, with even more mysterious phrasing.
The first Shock series headset will have DTS 5.1 Virtual Surround Sound, a remote box, LEDs and replaceable ear pads. It'll be bendable, adjustable in many ways, and will feature a noise-canceling microphone, with gold-plated 3.5mm audio jacks. "The Shock One Headset is one superior gaming headset," says Thermaltake.
In addition, the new brand will have other odds and ends, such as gaming gloves, and mouse pads.
You can expect Tt eSPORTS to be a supporter of gaming events all over the place. They have got things started by becoming an official sponsor of the 2010 World Cyber Games.
