What is a gaming keyboard?
A gaming keyboard is an advanced keyboard for gamers and advanced users.
The keyboards are designed help improve and optimise a user’s gaming experience. This can be anything from a more ergonomic setup to programmable keys, each with features unique to the individual gamer.
Mechanical or Membrane?
A vital point delineating standard issue keyboards from their gaming counterparts is the infrastructure of each individual key. Gaming keyboards can come with either mechanical or membrane-based keys, with the choice often coming down to individual preference.
For gamers, mechanical keyboards are vital for fast-paced gaming, requiring less force and depression for each tap, and delivering a firm and satisfying bounce-back. Each key is built with its own mechanical switch, allowing for quicker response times and more tactile feedback.
Membrane keyboards are all connected to the same infrastructure below the keys. The required force is a little higher and the key will usually require a full depression before the tap registers. Usually coming with slimmer keycaps and a softer response, gamers who chose a membrane keyboard do so for the ease with which their fingers can run from one key to the next.
The choice of keys gamers are presented with goes deeper than the two overarching categories above. Should you plump for mechanical keys, there are a number of sub-categories that allow gamers unprecedented levels of choice in their search for the perfect keyboard.
When browsing the wide variety of mechanical gaming keyboards, you’re likely to come across the term ‘Cherry MX’ followed by a colour. The important part is the colour, which represents a category of mechanical switch.
The coloured key categories differ on things such as weight for activation (how much pressure you have to put on the key), depression required (how far down the key has to be pushed to register) and level of feedback (how the key springs back when released)
Ultimately, the decision often comes down to individual preference. In general, a stiffer and less responsive set of keys is favoured where users require a keyboard for both gaming and typing. The click also offers the typist an audible response while they’re working. For a keyboard that’s keenly focused on gaming, a light activation weight and depression level with a tactile response is the ultimate choice.
The categorisation of each keyboard is represented in the backlighting of the keys. A Red set of keys then will contain a cool neon red illumination, although many high-end keyboards allow you to choose your own backlight colour.
