Xiaomi releases mechanical keyboard for gamers




Xiaomi has announced a mechanical keyboard with RGB lighting. The company uses an aluminum housing and Red switches for the ‘Gaming Keyboard’ of the relatively unknown brand TTC.

The release of the mechanical keyboard follows that of Xiaomi’s Mi Gaming Mouse, headset and Mi Gaming laptop earlier this year. It is a complete keyboard with 104 keys, containing Red switches from TTC. TTC stands for Trantek Co and is a maker of microswitches for mice and keyboards. The company also makes Blue, Brown and Black switches. According to TTC, Xiaomi is the first company to use its new hybrid Red switches with travel of 3mm.

The keyboard has adaptable RGB lighting. The management is carried out via integrated software and fn-tests, which, according to AnandTech, does not appear to support the support of third-party rgb software. The keyboard supports 33-key rollover and has a polling rate of 1000Hz. Programmable buttons are not present and the support for macros is missing. The sale has started in home country China for a suggested retail price of 229 yuan, which has been converted and with VAT around 35.50 euros.

Update, 14.40 : Initially the title said that it was the first mechanical keyboard of Xiaomi. That is not the case: the company already had the Yuemi MK01, a white keyboard with which the company did not focus on gamers.
