Cherry presents Cherry MX Silent keyboard switches

The company Cherry, which makes high-quality switches for various high-end keyboards, has extended its MX family of keyboard switches with the addition of a new silent switch that comes with patented noise reduction. The new switch is called Cherry MX Silent and comes with nearly silent operation.

The new silent switches come with integrated 2-component tapplets, which reduce audible clicks to the acoustic minimum at the top and bottom ends. In addition the new switches are optimized for use with high-quality SMD LEDs and come with the worldwide unique Gold-Crosspoint technology, which guarantees lasting consistent and lossless input of over 50 million keystrokes.

The new switches will be available in two versions – MX Red and MX Black. They differ in the force required – the Red switches require 45 grams, while the Black ones need 60 grams. In both cases the bounce time is 1 ms.

The first keyboard to use the new switches will come from Corsair – the US company will debut it at Gamescom 2015, which runs until August 9 this year.
