Best Gaming Keyboards

Keyboards have been essential to PC gaming ever since its creation. This multi-functional tool has been tinkered with and upgraded for gamers. Many gaming keyboards outweigh their regular counterparts with mechanical keycaps, better ergonomics, RGB, etc. Here are some of the best Gaming Keyboards in 2020.

Corsair K95 RGB Platinum

The Corsair K95 RGB Platinum comes with Cherry MX Speed, Brown Switches. It is a full-sized keyboard with dedicated media controls and of course RGB. The Corsair K95 Platinum is superb, it comes with a dedicated wrist wrest which further improves the build quality and ergonomics of this keyboard. The key responses are satisfying and elegant. This keyboard also comes with an extra set of keycaps which are helpful if you ever lose one. The media controls are also superb, as they are easy to use and clean. One downside of this keyboard is that it is very expensive, with a 200$ price tag, it surely isn’t for those on a budget.

Razer Huntsman Elite

The Razer Huntsman Elite is a fascinating keyboard. It is the only keyboard that has optomechanical switches, making it very interesting. These switches make an almost instantaneous activation. Furthermore, due to design specifications, these switches are twice as durable as normal mechanical switches. The Razer Huntsman Elite also comes with a magnetic wrist wrest that is very comfortable for your wrist. It has dedicated media controls and a multi-function dial that can be changed to anything you want through the use of Razer Synapse. Of course, the keyboard also comes with RGB. Again a downside of this keyboard is that it is also very expensive sharing the same price tag as the K95 RGB Platinum.
