With its RealKey-technology, the MX Board 6.0 achieves unmatched performance. Thanks to an analogue signal path, all buttons are connected directly to the controller, so there is no need for digital scanning of the switching points. The MX Board 6.0 can rapidly transmit signals to the PC in less than a millisecond and is ideally suited for situations where response time is crucial. In contrast, conventional mechanical keyboards works much slower and need around 20 milliseconds because of their signal conversion. More so, RK-technology allows for a full N-key rollover and 100 percent reliable anti-ghosting. CHERRY ensures that all keys can be read simultaneously, actively preventing any erroneous interpretation of the signal inputs.
Proven MX technology
The MX Board 6.0 has been fully equipped with its own, German engineered, high-quality gold-crosspoint switches, which have a lifespan of more than 50 million operations, allowing CHERRY to guarantee the highest precision when triggered. The new performance keyboard utilizes red switches, which operate without tactile feedback and minimal resistance. The linear actuation force is 45 centinewton. Each switch is also equipped with a red LED. This gives the MX Board 6.0 an even backlight with brightness control. The matching laser-engraved keycaps are optimized to achieve perfect illumination. CHERRY has accomplished this by using higher key caps, like with the G80-3000. With this change, unwanted illumination of the key gaps are eliminated.
Despite its eye-catching backlight, the MX Board 6.0 features a basic and puristic design. CHERRY has chosen for a high-quality 454 x 147 x 24,8 mm housing. The upper side is made of aluminum with a sanded finish; a grease-repellent coating ensures high resistance against everyday influences. The high quality of the keyboard is complemented by its textile braided, two-meter long USB-cable.
