    New Switch: Cherry MX Silver (Exclusive to Corsair Keyboards)

    Link to original post - https://www.geek.com/news/cherrys-new...oards-1652983/

    "Most mechanical keyswitches are identified by the color of the stem. For example, the MX Reds that are so common on gaming boards. The new switch from Cherry has a silver stem with similar properties to an MX Red. They’re both linear (no click or tactile bump) and the actuation force is a very light 45g. The main difference is that MX Silver switches have an actuation point at just 1.2mm rather than 2mm like other Cherry switches. This makes it faster to trigger a key; 40% faster according to Cherry and Corsair."

    What do you guys think about this? Apparently both reds and silvers require at least 45g of force to actuate. But the only difference is the silvers are needed to be pushed down 1.2mm instead of 2mm (reds)



    My apologies if this a duplicate thread to one already created, but I didn't see one.

    Don't like any mechanical switches, just doesn't feel right with me. I'll stick with my rubber domes.

    I like the reds, I'll try the silvers in the future most likely.

    I don't think I'll feel a difference between this and cherry mx silent in GTA & BF (quieter red)
