Particularly, beneath each and every transfer is an infrared gentle beam this is claimed to exactly come across the actuation of key presses at a 1.5mm actuation level, versus maximum different gaming keyboards that use mechanics to do the similar factor.
Gentle is healthier than steel
Razer says that, as a result of those switches actuate at ‘the rate of sunshine,’ they’re 30% quicker than conventional mechanical key switches. Now not simplest that, however Razer says that those keys require a lighter actuation power of 45g than its earlier Razer Inexperienced mechanical switches.
After all, as a result of those switches characteristic fewer mechanics, the opto-mechanical transfer is rated for as much as 100 million key presses – that’s double the reliability of correct mechanical switches, in step with Razer.
