OCZ Sabre gaming keyboard

OCZ on Tuesday released its Sabre OLED multimedia keyboard meant for gamers or CAD professionals. OCZ's first premium peripheral offering, the Sabre sports nine dedicated OLED keys (not unlike Art Lebedev Optimus keyboards) that can be customized and are capable of displaying key icons converted from digital images or text. The rest of the 103 keys are backlit with amber LEDs.

Software in the Sabre lets the nine OLED keys control complex commands and their functionality change automatically depending on which application is selected and running. Each "home" command of a key can also activate a sub-menu of shortcuts that coincide with the simultaneous holding of the Alt or Ctrl keys.

The keys on the Sabre have been tested to more than 5 million cycles. The Sabre itself is compatible with Windows XP (SP2 or later) and Vista. In keeping with most of OCZ's launches, no pricing information or release dates have been released.
