It seems software is getting as important as the hardware itself these days, should you have purchased one based on our reviews, please do upgrade the GDS software to update v2.0 for KM780RGB & KM570 RGB Keyboards as it had a massive overhaul.
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!
