Optical-Mechanical Keyswitches
Exclusive CORSAIR OPX Optical-Mechanical keyswitches use a beam of infrared light to register an actuation, delivering a hyper-fast and precise keypress registration at a 1.0mm actuation point with zero debounce.
Zero Debounce Delay
With CORSAIR OPX Optical-Mechanical keyswitches, there is zero debounce delay. Reset is immediate after lifting past the actuation point so that even your most rapid keypresses are guaranteed to register.
