by on13 January 2015

With RealKey Technology

Cherry, the company best known for its wide choice of mechanical keyboard switches which are now pretty much in every gaming keyboard on the market, has unveiled its latest keyboard under its own brand, the MX Board 6.0, which will use the latest keyboard switches from the company, an all-metal design as well as the new RealKey Technology.

Aimed at those that spend a lot of time behind their keyboard, including software developers, writers and gamers, the new Cherry MX Board 6.0 will feature standard 102-key configuration with macros, full metal body with included magnetically attached palm-rest as well as red backlight.

The Cherry MX Board 6.0 will actually use an analog controller that should shorten the debouncing delay from 20ms, which is a standard for most keyboards on the market today, down to 1ms. The analog controller has yet another advantage as it does not feature ghosting, thus 100 percent N-key rollover.
