Cooler Master has released a pair of new gaming keyboards with the MasterKeys Intelligent White series Pro L and Pro M, both of which feature Cherry MX switches and LED backlighting.
The keyboards are differentiated by size, with the Pro L a full-sized model, and the Pro M a 90% design. Both feature a hybrid anti-ghosting implementation which begins with 6-key, and automatically switches to N-key rollover if 6+ buttons are pressed simultaniously. A 32-bit ARM Cortex processor is onboard to control all functionality, from macros to illumination.
"The MasterKeys Pro White utilizes the on board memory and processor for its advanced On-the-fly System. LED lighting modes, repeat rate adjustment, multimedia keys, macro recording, combined with four profile keys, enable you to control all aspects of the keyboard right at your fingertips."
The Pro L and Pro M are available with Cherry MX Brown, Blue, and Red switches. The USB 2.0-connected keyboard offer a 1000 Hz polling rate, and 1 ms response time.

The Brightest of Brights with the MasterKeys Pro L and Pro M
The MasterKeys Pro Intelligent White series offers the brightest LEDs and the best tactile feeling suitable for all users. Cooler Master effectively designed a keyboard with superior switches and the brightest white LED backlighting while still using 100% authentic CHERRY MX switches. The Intelligent White LEDs provides a clearer, crisper white compared to other RGB keyboards. On-board memory ensures all responsive lighting effects and macros are executed instantly thanks to the seamless On-the-fly System and profile support.

The intuitive user interface allows you to manually adjust the lighting speed and mode to suit your choice. To alter the lighting mode, press FN + left or right arrow keys with the anti-clock wise icons. You can also modify the light speed by pressing FN + the top and down arrow keys with the speed icon. Whatever your style or preference, it can be altered at the tip of your fingers, all without the need to install or use software.
Suitable for Work and Play
The keyboard comes with a default and gaming profile modes. While working or doing homework you can disable gaming macros and lighting modes by pressing FN + ESC to enter default mode and prevent any macro use. When you’re ready to get back into the game, use the four dedicated profiles for all your lighting and macros for a quick, easy switch and boost to your performance. The Status Indicator System makes it easy to navigate the On-the-fly System and easily change settings and profiles by just glancing at the keyboard.
Exclusive Anti-Ghosting Technology
Two advanced technologies rolled into one makes the keyboard’s functions and macros compatible even on Mac OSX systems. Cooler Master has combined N-key and 6-key rollover together, ensuring each key press is correctly detected regardless of how many keys are pressed. Rest assured regardless of how fast and furious it gets, on whatever OS you choose to game on, the MasterKeys Pro series can handle it.
