Today, EVGA introduced some new peripherals into the PC enthusiast world with the X Series Gaming mice and Z Series Gaming keyboards. There are three new mice, the X15, X17, and X20, each using a triple sensor with 3-dimension array technology among several other features. The 3D array technology found on the X17/X20 uses an additional LOD sensor (a total of three) to detect lift-off distance to achieve the shortest and most accurate lift-off distance. The Z20 even offers three modes of connection: 2.4 GHz wireless, Bluetooth, or wired USB.
The Z15 and Z20 mechanical gaming keyboards offer a 4K Hz report rate which is said to be more responsive and more precise inputs. A neat value-add is the EVGA Time-of-Flight sensing system on the Z20 which detects user movement to trigger the system awake or send it asleep. The Z20’s Light Strike LK Optical Mechanical switches have 1.5 mm travel to actuation and your choice of Linear and Silent (dark grey) or clicky (light grey) type switches. The Z15 uses Kalih Speed Silver Linear or Bronze Clicky mechanical switches. Both keyboards offer loads of RGB lighting and customization through the new EVGA Unleash RGB software.
Details on all both the mice and keyboard are found below in the press release:
EVGA X15 / X17/ X20 Gaming Mice
Triple Sensor with 3-Dimension Array Tech
EVGA brings you the world’s first triple sensor mice with dual LOD sensors, paired with a Pixart 3335 optical sensor on the X20 or Pixart 3389 on the X17. Most gaming mice use the mouse’s primary sensor or an additional LOD to detect the lift-off distance, while the EVGA X20/17 uses a more advanced 3-Dimension Array Tech. This system uses a triple sensor algorithm to detect the position where you lift the mouse off a surface and put the mouse back down, achieving the shortest and most accurate lift-off distance. EVGA’s 3-Dimension Array Tech algorithm can detect within a minimum of 0.4 mm to a maximum of 3 mm from the mouse to the surface, dynamically adjusting the best power-off height. Customize the power-off height in different directions to achieve the most accurate gaming in the world with EVGA UNLEASH RGB software.

EVGA Z15 / Z20 Gaming Keyboards
4K Hz Report Rate
The Z20/Z15 Keyboard is powered by a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M33 core microprocessor to support a 4K Hz report rate. Offering the most advanced gaming keyboard experience, 4K Hz is 4x more responsive and inputs can be more precise.
EVGA Time-of-Flight Sensing System
The Z20 keyboard features a ToF proximity sensor, this detects user movement to trigger the system awake or to send it to sleep.
The EVGA Z20 Elite Keyboard brilliantly outshines the competition with fully-customizable *Per-Key* RGB LEDs, with left & right edge RGB Light bar customization to fit any color scheme. The Z20 Elite LED backlighting can be configured via the EVGA UNLEASH RGB software, and multiple lighting effects can be instantly dimmed or brightened via the LED brightness function combination keys.
