Record-breakingly fast

Use a sensitive actuation for WASD and in-game ability keys that need the absolute fastest split-second edge on the competition. Or, adjust slightly deeper for speed with added precision.

Deep & deliberate

Use a deeper actuation for typing or gaming with extreme accuracy. Any key set at this level will register when you've confidently pressed it, giving you less typos and more peace of mind.

OLED Smart Display

An integrated command center displays useful information for adjusting settings, changing profiles, and seeing on-the-fly updates. Avoid tabbing out of what you're doing, and instead let your keyboard show you the important details.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Apex Pro differ from the Apex 7?

The Apex Pro has all of the same features as the Apex 7, with the exception of the switch type. While the Apex 7 features either red, blue, or brown mechanical gaming switches, the Apex Pro features OmniPoint Adjustable Mechanical Switches.

What mechanical switches does the Apex Pro feature?

The Apex Pro features SteelSeries patented OmniPoint Adjustable Mechanical Switches, which allow you to adjust the sensitivity, in other words the distance that the keys need to travel before registering as a keypress. Read more about the switches here.

How easy is it to configure the lighting?

SteelSeries Engine software is universally recognized as being extremely easy to use. With the introduction of the Apex Pro, we are taking SteelSeries Engine to the next level with a handful of new Engine Apps. ImageSync is a first of its kind, programmable tool that creates the most complicated lighting effects in seconds.
