CORSAIR K100 RGB Optical-Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review 2

CORSAIR has released a number of new products in recent weeks, and today the company is launching their latest keyboard: the K100 RGB. This new model represents “the pinnacle of CORSAIR keyboards”, according to the company, “offering the cutting-edge performance, style, durability, and customization that gamers need to stand above the rest”.

The list of features is quite impressive, with the new OPX RGB optical-mechanical key switches of particular interest. These linear switches have a very fast 1.0 mm actuation point, 150 million keystroke lifespan, and “register keypresses up to 4x faster than standard mechanical gaming keyboards”. This latter claim is based on CORSAIR’s “AXON Hyper-Processing Technology”, which offers a native 4,000 Hz hyper-polling and 4,000 Hz key scanning rate.
