SteelSeries, has announced the launch of its newest additions to the Apex line of keyboards. The Apex Pro Mini and Apex Pro Mini Wireless keyboards!
These little beasts are smaller, faster, and highly adjustable. The Apex Pro Mini and Apex Pro Mini Wireless give credence to “Mini is Mighty.”
The 60% form factor is the mini part. For the Pro you have OmniPoint 2.0 with an 11x faster response time, 10x faster actuation. It supposedly is also 2x more durable than standard mechanical switches.
In addition to the compact form factor, come improvements on the fastest switches in the world. The OmniPoint 2.0 operates between 0.2mm and 3.8mm. This gives users faster response and actuation times, along with even more adjustment potential than ever before. When adjusted to 0.2mm, the 0.54 ms response time offers the fastest keystrokes in the world.
Additionally, the introduction of OmniPoint 2.0 offers Dual Action keypresses allowing programming two actions with a single key. This makes executing combos, or walking and running, or pulling out a grenade and throwing it, one keypress.
With SteelSeries’ innovative modifier key, full keyboard functionality is maintained in a smaller mini form factor – making the Apex Pro Mini keyboards the perfect size to fit within a backpack for on-the-go, esports tournaments, LAN parties, and those headed to their first dorm room or already enrolled in college.
Apex Pro Mini Wireless
Combining OmniPoint 2.0, the world’s fastest key switches, with a new smaller 60% form factor, the Apex Pro Mini Wireless allows gamers to take a high-performance keyboard with them on the go. Quantum 2.0 Wireless ensures lag-free gaming and working while offering dual connectivity. Users can switch between 2.4Ghz Gaming Grade Wireless and Bluetooth connectivity wherever they go. Rated at 100M keystrokes, the OmniPoint 2.0 switches need the right keycaps to match. Adding double shot PBT keycaps makes for the perfect pairing. This delivers unrivaled durability so they last from the first press to the last.
On May 23, FaZe Karrigan became the first pro gamer to win a CS:GO major using a wireless keyboard (Apex Pro Mini Wireless).

Utilizing the new OmniPoint 2.0 switches, the Apex Pro Mini allows users to adjust between 0.2mm and 3.8mm, switching between weightless actuation and deep deliberate presses. The 60% design allows for more desk space, ensuring that big mouse swings go uninterrupted while offering better ergonomics when working and playing. Double shot PBT keycaps ensure the keycaps last as long as the switches, while side printed key functions allow users full keyboard functionality in a small package.
