It was only a few months ago that we were talking about the COUGAR 700k gaming keyboard, and now the German peripheral company has announced a follow-up to the popular gaming peripheral. The COUGAR 600k Gaming Keyboard offers the same quality construction as the 700k, but removes most of the extra function keys of the aforementioned peripheral. You still get N-key rollover and Cherry MX mechanical switches, but it's delivered in a package that peripheral purists can truly appreciate.
That's not to say the 600k is completely stripped down. There are still controls for adjusting the repeat rate of the keys, the LED lighting on the WASD and directional keys, and of course a switch to disable the Windows key function. As for when the 600k will be available, that wasn't in the original press release. You can check it out for more info below.

COUGAR launches 600K Gaming Keyboard
December 3rd 2014, Taipei - COUGAR, a leading player in the computer gaming hardware market announces today the release of a breakthrough product: the COUGAR 600K Gaming Keyboard. Sharing design with the award-winning COUGAR 700K that already conquered the desktops of thousands of players, the 600K offers a radically different approach with the same quality. While the COUGAR 700K satisfied the needs of those gamers who crave for extended functionality and full customization, the 600K caters for the purists, those people for which the most important is that nothing gets in the way.
The 600K is a N-Key Rollover mechanical keyboard featuring Cherry MX Switches. Its purist approach to functionality means that there is no need to install drivers or set it up to start using it. Opening the box and plugging the golden-plated USB connector to the PC is all that is needed to get it working. To complement this, and in a strictly non-intrusive way, a few essential functions useful for gaming are incorporated, which need no configuration or installation.
The 600K allows for quick adjustment of the repeat rate of keys, especially useful for games which require pressing repeatedly a specific key. Apart from this, a dedicated key to activate or deactivate the Windows key, a lighting control for the WASD and Direction keys LED and multimedia keys supplement the core functions. These extra keys are all located on top of the keyboard, so they will not require the user to adjust his movements in any way to reach all the standard keys. In addition to this, the 600K includes a USB pass-through for the user’s convenience, completing thus the set of small additions to make the user’s life more comfortable.
“We knew that there were people who simply weren’t interested in the plethora of functions offered by high end keyboards but at the same time didn’t want to settle for a lower end one. For all those people, who just want a pure, high quality mechanical keyboard in a durable and elegant design, we created the COUGAR 600K,” said Lio Huang, Marketing Dept. III Director, COUGAR.
The COUGAR 600K will be available in all four Cherry MX Switch colors.
