Introducing the GMMK 2 - Pre-Orders Begin March 17th

Glorious HQ

March 17, 2022

The sequel with no equal has finally arrived. Meet the GMMK 2. 

The original GMMK was released in 2016, revolutionizing the industry as the first widely available “hot swappable” mechanical gaming keyboard.

GMMK 2 takes what made the original so iconic and introduces a gorgeous new design with next-gen power and versatility, creating the best, most feature-rich keyboard in its class.

Early in the board’s development, we brought the community into the design process by asking you to share which new features you would most like to see included.

You Wanted…

· The 65% Layout to keep those sweet, sweet arrow keys.

· A Metal Frame with internal weights for a high-quality look and feel.

· More Color Options to match your desk setups.

· Unique Case Lighting for that extra touch of “swag,” as this person put it.

· Vibration Dampening Foam for a satisfying typing sound.

· ISO Support for our international users out there.

· Removable USB-C, because Micro USB is prehistoric.

· 5-Pin Hotswap Sockets that accept PCB mount switches.

· Improved Software Tools like Glorious CORE and QMK.

· Quality Stabilizers with pre-lubed housings and screw-in compatibility.


All of the above. AND…

· A 96% version for full-sized functionality in a more compact size.

· Compatibility with all recent Glorious keycap sets regardless of layout.*

· New pre-lubed Glorious Fox linear switches, clear for brighter RGB.

· New premium, shine-through double shot keycaps.

· An affordable price for both Pre-Built and Barebones versions.


Don’t believe us? See for yourself! 

*Excludes Glorious Mechanical Keyboard Keycaps designed for the original GMMK 1.

Q: How is this board related to GMMK PRO?

A: GMMK 2 is a completely re-engineered sequel to the original GMMK 1. It was designed with gamers in mind, and is a budget-friendly, high-quality, high-performance option for almost any user.
GMMK PRO is an entirely different board with unique features and specs. It was developed to make once very niche (and expensive), enthusiast-level customizability features available to a wider audience. It's great for users looking for an ultra premium option, fine-tuned to their exact preferences in aesthetics, sound, and typing experience.
Both boards are excellent, premium-quality keyboards. Which one you choose depends on your personal preferences and budget!
