There is NO K70 RGB 2016, if the shop you're looking at is calling it that (or the one you bought it from) then it must be the old (original) K70 RGB. The one with the older controller that has a flicker issue in displaying 16,8m colors.

 

The Rapidfire has the NEW controller (no flicker issue) but comes only with the new Cherry MX Speed switches. If you want another type of switch then you should get a K70 LUX RGB which is the old K70 RGB but with an updated LED controller (no flicker issue) and an additional USB pass-through too.

As I mentioned above RAPIDFIRE has a different type of switches (Cherry MX Speed) which is a new switch, you can find more about it here: http://www.corsair.com/en/rapidfire

 

The LUX instead if the new version of the K70 which comes with the usual Cherry MX switches: red, brown and blue. Also the LUX compared to the K70 RGB You have right now has an updated LED controller (no more flicker issue) and and USB passthrough which your current one doesn't have. These features are also available on the RAPIDFIRE, to make it easy to understand the RAPIDFIRE is basically a LUX keyboard but with a different switch type (speed).
