It takes a lot to stand out in the keyboard market today, as everybody have released numerous models with mechanical switches and RGBs behind them. Someone at Corsair may have been listening to War as they have come up with a low profile version of their K70 keyboard. These switches reduce your total keystroke from 4 mm to 3.2 mm as well as a shorter actuation travel, the length depending on the specific flavour of switch you purchase. The model that The Tech Report reviewed was a Rapidfire, which sports LP Speed switches which require a mere 1 mm to actuate.
If you are looking for the minimum of travel when typing consider this new K70.
"Corsair and Cherry have teamed up for another mechanical key switch debut, and this time, the star of the show is the MX Low Profile Speed switch on board the K70 MK.2 Low Profile Rapidfire keyboard. We got these slim switches under our fingers to see whether they're a shortcut to gaming and typing bliss."
