When it comes to gaming, a keyboard is more than just simply a tool for typing. It’s part of the gear. It’s about features, functionality, and durability. The right keyboard is an essential part of every gamer’s rig.
While choosing a gaming keyboard, there are a few factors each gamer will consider: size, customizable keys, key rollover, and anti-ghosting.
There are three leading keyboard sizes known to every gamer – full-size, tenkeyless, and 60%. Competitive gamers will lean towards a 60% keyboard to secure extra desk space with the minimal keys needed, while casual and enthusiast gamers will have no problem with a tenkeyless keyboard.
Some gaming keyboards have a column with a set of dedicated keys that can be programmed to execute in-game. These are great for MMO gamers allocating shortcuts and even more convenient when the reaction times are short.
Key rollover and anti-ghosting
Gaming keyboards are specifically designed and built to support simultaneous key presses (also known as key rollover) when you’re in-game. When pressing certain keys at the same time or even quickly after each other, a non-gaming keyboard sometimes does not register. This is known as ghosting. It may not be a major factor when typing an email but can be extremely detrimental when you’re mid-game.
