What Is a Gaming Keyboard?
A gaming keyboard is a sturdy, high-performance keyboard that’s well-designed for gaming. Equipped with satisfying RGB lights behind the keys, these keyboards are usually mechanical, which means they’re the easiest to type with. You barely have to apply any pressure for keys to register, allowing you to type faster and without fatigue.
They also have extra keys, called macro keys, which you can program to perform certain actions in games or use as shortcuts. For instance, you can program a macro key to cast an ability in-game or launch commonly used applications
Gaming keyboard vs regular keyboard
One of the first things you’ll notice when looking at gaming keyboards is that they’re almost always mechanical. Most looking for a good typing experience, especially gamers, opt for mechanical keyboards because they feel great to type on.
The keys are light and often have shorter travel distances to register, which makes typing feel effortless. This means your keys will register on your PC without having to press them down all the way. And with fast response times, you’re able to type quickly without straining your fingers.
N-Key Rollover (NKRO)
Both gaming and regular keyboards have a feature called N-key rollover (NKRO). This feature is what allows a keyboard to register multiple keystrokes at the same time. For example, if you’re playing a game and need to press multiple keys simultaneously, NKRO ensures that all the keystrokes will be registered by your PC
Macro keys are additional keys on your keyboard that can be programmed to perform various tasks. These can be simple tasks such as opening a specific program, inputting text, or muting your speaker volume. You can also create complex macros that record a sequence of keys that are then played back with a single keystroke, with your keyboard’s software.
If you’re tired of going through keyboards that break down easily or don’t last long, you’ll want to get a gaming keyboard. Gaming keyboards are built to withstand heavy use and will last much longer than regular models.
