The Pro X 60 is a 60% TKL keyboard, a compact design (TKL, or “tenkeyless,” means no number pad). That offers more room for dynamic mouse movements. And it enhances portability and adaptability to diverse gaming setups, according to Logitech G, the company’s gaming division.

Logitech G said it collaborated with top esports athletes on the keyboard’s development to ensure it meets the highest standards of play. It brings the essential gaming keys within reach while maintaining a compact size. Plus it offers an array of useful features.

Key features of Pro X 60

Some of the new keeb’s main features include:

KeyControl Technology. With the innovative KeyControl feature, gamers can assign up to 15 functions per key, allowing them to tailor their keyboard according to their gaming style. This innovative technology significantly enhances customization capabilities beyond what standard keyboards offer.

Lightsync RGB Technology. The Pro X 60 uses Lightsync RGB technology, offering approximately 16.8 million programmable colors. This feature enables gamers to customize their key colors to match their setup or mood, adding a touch of personality to their gaming.

Dual-mode connectivity. The PRO X 60 features dual-mode connectivity options. It comes with Lightspeed wireless technology, offering reliable connectivity. Additionally, it also offers Bluetooth and USB connectivity, ensuring that gamers can stay connected in any situation.

GX Optical switches. The PRO X 60 is equipped with GX Optical switches, available in both tactile and linear configurations. Unlike standard mechanical switches, the GX Optical switches actuate through light, instantly sending commands and eliminating the debounce required by traditional mechanical switches.

Other features. In addition, the PRO X 60 also includes a game mode switch, volume roller and other media controls. It comes with a semi-hard carrying case for easy portability, and is available in three colorways: black, white and pink.

Pricing and availability

The Logitech G Pro X 60 Lightspeed Gaming Keyboard is now available for pre-order at $180 on Logitech’s website (15% off discount available) or on Amazon. The company said shipping starts April 16.
