Cooler Master releases MK850 analog keyboard

More control

According to latest hardware news, the pressure sensitivity might be the next game changer in gaming keyboards. With an analog keyboard, you can tell how hard a key is being pressed. Cooler Master's MK850 is the latest product to boast this feature.

A couple of months ago, Cooler Master made an announcement about the upcoming MK851 analog keyboard. A few weeks later, there are finally more informations about this product. The MK850 features Cherry MX key switches capable of sensing the entire 4mm range of a key press. This is possible due to the Aimpad technology that Cooler Master is adopting on this keyboard. Traditional mechanical keyboards can't register a press at the actuation point.

Aimpad technology is quite common in other peripherals, such as aviation joysticks, steering wheels and game controllers. Furthermore they keyboard comes with RGB backlighting, five programmable macro keys, support for up to four profiles, two programmable scroll wheels and a detachable USB-C cable. If you're a fan of wrist rests, you'll happy to know that Cooler Master will add one inside the package.

While these new features looks fine and pretty good for hardcore gamers, there is still something that isn't completely clear. Cooler Master recommend to not disable the MK850's Aimpad technology because otherwise you have to calibrate every time the technology. If you're going to not calibrate your Aimpad, you will have ghost typing and misregistered input.

If you want try this analog keyboard, it's available on Amazon, Best Buy and Newegg for $199.99 (199.99 Euro).
