We partnered with experts in switch technology to create the perfect switch for the M800. The result is the incredible QS1 switch. With a smooth linear action and 25% faster actuation than the traditional mechanical switch, the QS1 is built for pure speed (see comparison). QS1 switches have a 3mm throw depth, a 1.5mm actuation and only require a 45cN actuation force. All of the design choices in the QS1 switch specifications were made with two goals in mind: React faster and spend less wasted effort as you destroy your competition!
The keyboard is built at a low angle and with an optimally designed linear key layout that cuts down on finger travel distance. This allows for seamless, quick transitions between keys and across the keyboard for less fatigue on your fingers no matter how furiously they fly.
GUARANTEED PERFORMANCE WITH DUAL PROCESSORS
Your 600 APM would go to waste if the brains of the keyboard couldn’t keep up. That’s why we added an additional CPU inside the M800 that is dedicated only to processing key presses. No lag, no excuses. And when the gaming gets hectic, N-key rollover allows up to 256 key presses at once with zero issues.
We built in some incredible pre-configured lighting options, like Breathe, Wave and Trigger that highlight the keyboard’s vibrant and crisp illumination. Further personalize Apex M800 by creating, programing and sharing your own illumination designs.
USTOM PROFILES FOR ALL SCENARIOS
We broke the mold with the M800, ditching the typical limits on customized profiles. Configure and save as many variations in your keyboard’s lighting and programming as you want and instantly remap them with the touch of a button
Fire up a game and SteelSeries Engine recognizes that, instantly changing settings for you. When you change over to a different game your fine-tuned settings will switch right along with you.
