As for RGB customization, the keyboard is powered by Corsair’s “Axon Hyper Processing” technology that allows you to add up to 20 RGB lighting layers. The brand claims that keystrokes are transmitted up to eight times faster. When connected via a USB cable, the keyboard has a polling rate of up to 8,000Hz. On the other hand, using Corsair’s Slipstream Wireless adapter reduces the frequency down to 2,000Hz. The keyboard can also be connected through Bluetooth. It can switch between up to five devices with Slipstream Wireless and Bluetooth.
The K100 is a full-sized keyboard, hence, it includes a numpad, a volume roller, an extra set of media keys, as well as shortcut buttons. When it comes to battery life, Corsair claims that when connected wirelessly, the keyboard can last for up to 50 hours with RGB enabled. On the other hand, with RGB turned off, it is reported to have a battery life of up to 200 hours.
