The K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE is the first keyboard to use all new Cherry MX Speed Silver mechanical key switches. These switches share the same linear 45g mechanism as the Cherry MX Red, but now have a shorter actuation distance of 1.2mm instead of 2.0mm. In addition, the distance to bottoming out the key press is shorter.
