The Glorious GMMK Pro made its debut today on the company’s official blog on its website. According to the company, the Glorious GMMK Pro is the company’s showpiece of engineering and design, made for gamers, professionals, and the mechanical keyboard enthusiasts.
Glorious GMMK Pro
Unlike other higher-end keyboards in the market where you have to purchase them off group buys in limited numbers, Glorious is making the GMMK Pro a ready-made product that will always be in stock for purchase.
The Glorious GMMK Pro has a 75% layout, TKL design which has all the keys you need, including the arrow clusters. It features a fully CNC-machined aluminium case that comes in either Black Slate or White Ice colourways. What you’ll notice on the top right is the rotary encoder. This is a fully programmable knob that lets you control volume and media by default.
The Glorious GMMK Pro also has GOAT stabilizers that are factory lubed and cut, featuring a screw-in design. Software wise, you can customise the keyboard’s keys with either QMK or VIA opensource firmware, or use Glorious’ own Core software. For the PCB, it uses a 5-pin south facing PCB that is fully modular with hotswap capabilities. This allows you to easily change your switch whenever you feel like it. On top of that, the PCB also supports both plate and PCB mounted switches, as well as clip-in or screw-in stabs.
Aesthetics wise, the Glorious GMMK Pro has RGB lighting, with a side lighting that’s programmable, and per-key RGB lighting. There are already multiple colour modes and animations you can choose from default. Connectivity wise, the keyboard uses USB Type-C instead of microUSB.
Pricing And Availability
The Glorious GMMK Pro will be a barebone pre-assembled set that doesn’t come with switches. If you want, you can pair it with Glorious’ own Glorious Panda switches, or any switch of your liking. It will be priced at $169.99 (approx. RM705) and reservations will start on the 11th of November 2020.
