Qpad is looking to make gamers' dreams come true this holiday season with two new premium keyboards. The standout feature of both the MK-85 and the MK-50 is full n-key rollover — the ability to register as many simultaneous keyboard taps as your hands can muster — over USB, which the company claims is a first for mechanical keyboards. Both models use Cherry MX Red key switches, which offer no tactile or audible feedback and feature identical actuation and release points. All the better for your quick-tap FPS needs.

The MK-85 also incorporates individual red LED backlights to set the mood, programmable keys, a built-in USB hub, audio and headphone connectors. The more budget-minded MK-50 forgoes the bells and whistles, delivering simply the stripped-down keyboard itself for almost half the price. The keyboards are making their official appearance tomorrow at the Dreamhack gaming festival in Sweden, with the MK-50 shipping soon thereafter for €79.90 ($106.87). The MK-85 will ship in December for €149.90 ($200.50).
