G.SKILL Releases New GDS v2.0 Software Update for KM780 RGB & KM570 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboards

G.SKILL Relea­ses New GDS v2.0 Soft­ware Update for KM780 RGB & KM570 RGB Mecha­ni­cal Gaming Key­boards



Tai­pei, Tai­wan (25 Sept 2017) – G.SKILL Inter­na­tio­nal Enter­pri­se Co., Ltd., the world’s lea­ding manu­fac­tu­rer of extre­me per­for­mance memo­ry and gaming peri­pherals, announ­ces a rewor­ked soft­ware for the RIPJAWS series KM780 RGB, KM780R RGB, and KM570 RGB mecha­ni­cal gaming key­board. This new v2.0 update has been rewrit­ten to stream­li­ne the over­all user expe­ri­ence, inclu­ding auto­ma­ting pro­fi­le saving and a reor­ga­ni­zed user inter­face to redu­ce the num­ber of clicks for each action, as well as adding new lighting opti­ons. Most nota­b­ly, the G.SKILL Dri­ver Sys­tem no lon­ger requi­res the .NET Frame­work to work star­ting from ver­si­on 2.0.


Impro­ved User Expe­ri­ence

Through mas­si­ve amounts of valu­able user feed­back, the soft­ware UI has been impro­ved for a more effi­ci­ent user expe­ri­ence by redu­cing the num­ber of requi­red clicks to custo­mi­ze set­tings, making it easier to learn and more user-fri­end­ly. Macros and lighting pro­files can now be refres­hed and updated to the key­board direct­ly from the macro and lighting pro­files menu, ins­te­ad of going back and forth bet­ween the menu tabs to save any chan­ges. Importing all your con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on and set­tings is now ful­ly imple­men­ted, so exporting and rel­oa­ding your pro­files and set­tings are much easier. This also lets you easi­ly sha­re your key­board set­tings across dif­fe­rent PCs or with fri­ends.



Enhan­ced and Expan­ded Lighting Custo­mi­za­ti­on

Among the many chan­ges, the key­board lighting set­ting page has been rede­si­gned to inte­gra­te all the pre­vious sepa­ra­te lighting con­trol into one page, and lighting effect pre­view wit­hin the soft­ware has been added. Addi­tio­nal­ly, the com­bi­na­ti­on of sta­tic and active lighting has been expan­ded to cover Ripp­le, Sonic, Chan­ge­ling, and Rain effects. For tho­se who are loo­king for some­thing more uni­que, 4-direc­tio­nal con­trol has also been added for Wave and Rain effects. And users going for a ste­alth black look would also appre­cia­te the digi­tal volu­me LED dis­play on/off togg­le inclu­ded in this update.


New fea­tures and soft­ware impro­ve­ments will be making its way to other G.SKILL key­board and mou­se gaming pro­ducts, so stay tun­ed for updates!
