BenQ ZOWIE Celeritas II Keyboard for e-Sports Officially Released

New ZOWIE Celeritas II Keyboard available in stores now!


SYDNEY, Australia, September 1st, 2017 – BenQ ZOWIE are proud to officially announce the release of the ZOWIE Celeritas II optical keyboard for e-Sports in stores today. The ZOWIE Celeritas II is the newest in the series of BenQ ZOWIE e-Sports peripherals, alongside our lineup of ZOWIE mice, mousepads, cable management device and audio device.

The ZOWIE Celeritas II creates an optimal and precise keystroke pre-travel distance, which is the distance the key has to travel before an action is performed. A High quality iron spring inside the Celeritas II allows for each keystroke to be executed with a consistent amount of force throughout while also improving durability to meet the high standard required in eSports.  

The ZOWIE Celeritas II also features optical switches, designed and tested by professional eSports players to ensure the most durable, reliable and consistent click feeling for players in every competitive title. The use of optical switches effectively eliminates the potential for performance degradation due to the wear of mechanical components, ensuring improved durability to meet the competitive standard expected by professional gamers.

Beneath its sleek exterior and optical key switches, individual red LED backlights vibrantly illuminate each key. These LED backlights can be brightened and softened, or turned off completely, using a dedicated hotkey combination on the keyboard. This allows for a more comfortable experience whether you are playing at home with the lights off or in a tournament setting or LAN event. The ZOWIE Celeritas II is 100% driverless, allowing for easy setup of your keyboard, and eliminating the need for external software so that you can get into your game sooner.

The ZOWIE Celeritas II will be available to try for yourself at the BenQ ZOWIE eXTREMESLAND ANZ LAN Finals at ESL Studios in Sydney on September 9th. The BenQ ZOWIE eXTREMESLAND ANZ LAN Finals is a ticketed event, so if you have not yet picked one up, you can do so here.

The ZOWIE Celeritas II is available now at selected Australian retailers. For availability of the Celeritas II in your region, consult our BenQ ZOWIE Where To Buy webpage.
