SteelSeries, the original esports brand that fuses gaming and culture, and the worldwide leader in gaming and esports peripherals, today unveiled the Ghost Edition Apex Pro Mini. Designed to shine through, literally and figuratively, and engineered for performance, the Ghost Edition Apex Pro Mini celebrates both Halloween and those who want to showcase their style. The sum of parts is as powerful and unorthodox as Frankenstein. A sleek sculptured 60% form factor, uber-fast speeds, a limited-edition translucent colorway, and unrivaled RGB illumination make this one monster of a keyboard.
As the creators of the original and patented Hall Effect Switch (OmniPoint), SteelSeries continues to push boundaries to give gamers a competitive edge. Launched in 2019, SteelSeries set out to provide gamers more control over their keyboards with the Apex Pro, the most customizable keyboard on the planet with the world’s fastest switches. The original OmniPoint Switch introduced fully adjustable actuation, the biggest leap in gaming keyboard innovation since the creation of the first mechanical switches, which allowed users to adjust between deep throws and feather-light touches.
Faster is better. In August of 2023, SteelSeries launched a software/firmware update that made the world’s fastest keyboard even faster… again. The update increased the functionality of Apex Pro series keyboards’ OmniPoint 2.0 Adjustable HyperMagnetic Switches by introducing Rapid Trigger mode, allowing Apex Pro keyboards to release the actuation even faster when users release a key. The result is a faster rapid-fire action and gamers can repeatedly press the same key without waiting for it to return. In addition to more speed, the brand increased the level of adjustability by updating the actuation distance — which is now 0.1 mm to 4.0 mm (from 0.2 mm to 3.8 mm.) This gives every independent key 40 levels of adjustability (up from 37).
A compact 60% design frees up desk space and allows for larger mouse movements, along with improved aesthetics, and more ergonomic positioning. Double shot PBT keycaps are engineered with a unique textured finish, feel every keystroke for better accuracy, while a premium, double-sleeved braided Coiled Cable is made for stability and minimalistic aesthetics. When you have a switch guaranteed to 100M keystrokes, gamers need keycaps to match. SteelSeries’ PBT keycaps offer unparalleled durability to ensure they last from keystroke 1, to keystroke 100,000,000. Secondary functions are printed on the side of the keycaps, providing the functionality of a full-size keyboard, in a smaller form factor. With SteelSeries’ innovative modifier key, full keyboard functionality is maintained in a smaller mini form factor – making the Apex Pro Mini keyboards the perfect size to fit within a backpack for on-the-go, esports tournaments, LAN parties, and those headed to their first dorm room or already enrolled in college.
Smaller, faster, and highly adjustable, the Apex Pro Mini gives credence to the phrase “Mini is Mighty.”
Only 250 on the planet and available exclusively at SteelSeries, the Ghost Edition Apex Pro Mini keyboards are available while supplies last for an MSRP of $229.99.
