    Corsair just dropped their new 60% gaming keyboard, the K65 Mini RGB. While it boasts a 8,000Hz polling rate that sounds cool, but with Cherry switches inside what does it matter? Let's check it all out in this review!

I have the Apex Pro TKL, If you're going to have a 0.2mm Actuation for fastest theoretical input, I feel 8khz polling would compliment it. But to switch to a 8khz board, with higher actuation mechanical switches, seems dumb, the c not being centered seems annoying as well. If any company (steelseries, corsair, etc) would release a 60% or 65% With 0.2 Actuation Optical Switches with 8Khz polling, I'd buy it. On 1080/360 2k240 or even my 4k144 I can subtly notice the 8Khz from 400 (especially) to 3600 dpi the higher the hertz, the more tangible. From my viper 8khz for a polling refrence For Keyboard, I could see it being more noticeable on say, Street Fighter, Mortal Combat, Fighter Z, TItles which would entirely be keyboard input orientated, I can see this being viable with high hertz monitors. (Anyone's opinion on a 60Hertz monitor not noticing the difference should be invalidated.) Not because elitest, but from a technical POV: If your monitors hardware can't actually support/show the difference, (Due to input latency, and refresh rate, why should that invalidate the tech from being worthwhile with you unable to see it, because of unsupported hardware?) Both my 360, and 240 monitors are true 1ms latency response times, with 8khz on a mouse sending input info 8 times a ms, it's there, more noticeable at lower DPIs feeling smoother, and with the keyboard while I play mainly FPS, I also do love side scroll fighters in high res, high refresh, and some people who play tournaments with supported hardware, (I.e pro gamers, professional consumers etc) would love this technology! Thanks for the informative review RandomFrankp, you went over the niche design flaws/annoyances, and hit on a good scope of the tech for normies, and pro consumers to have a basis of the product, keep on keepin' on, subscribed!

Sorry, but you spouted out a bunch of unsubstantiated stuff about latency. You have to actually test this stuff, and it's kind of complicated to do so. Optical switches aren't magically faster if the internal matrix scan rate is slow. There can be a delay added anyway to prevent retriggering from key chatter at the actuation point. From what I've seen, the Corsairs have very low latency, even with Cherry MX switches (which go through regular revision and improvement, guys, this 'it's 2020' stuff is ridic.) RTINGS even claims the K65 has a .1ms latency (what?) completely blowing everything else out of the water, but I haven't had time to comb through their methodology. It's gotta be diminishing returns anyway when you're down at the low single digits anyway. Also, if you think the reason manufacturers 'make their own' non-optical mechanical switches is because they are better and not because they're white-labeled & less-expensive clones of the established brands-- well, enjoy that worldview. I'm not gonna kill Santa.

Disagree on the 8k polling rate doesnt matter :/ Love your channel tho :) I was looking for a higher polling rate keyboard to reduce latency and quicker space bar smash to do a bunny hop in COD. Its easier to bunnyhop on controller because you change directions with a joystick and have a paddle on the back to spam jump. But, on a keyboard i loose momentum of the jump if the click isn't timed right. Hopefully, i explained that well. But after all the time I have put into this game, i can tell that my RK71 isnt keeping up. Getting myself razer viper 8k and a new 8k keyboard for my birthday 😀 Agree that corsair should have used faster switches 🙄

Okay.... After the Video I´m thinking: That's really dump to put 8k pollingrate into an keyboard, which isn't that great when it comes to innovation (and yes I know you cant innovate the entire game to a new direction). Even to not use the OPX switches is like a shame for corsair, and I really like this brand, this keyboard makes me thinking about selling my K70 MK.2 LP, which I do not owe a day actually. 😧

Only reason I bought it is because Corsair has a really good rgb software and they have white components with rgb lights which is the aesthetic I'm going for. I really wish that rgb was a just one and done thing, like one software for every company but sadly no. I want a rgb ecosystem where everything connects and you can only really do that with Corsair

Glad Corsair took that idea I had for that "Corsair logo keycap as Esc key" When they asked for ideas I said that and it appears they did it, now all they need to do is refresh the K100, put that with it, and put brown switches or literally any high actuation switch and I'm sold

As a 60% keyboard, I'm happy 60% keyboards are now getting more populated in the market. The K65 seems to be a good buy-and-use kind of scenario, or even for the slightly enthusiastic that will put foam in the case and lube the switches+stabs. For me though, I would really like to see brands like Corsair, Razer, etc, to come in and bring us an aluminium case and/or backplate, some brass would be absolutely brilliant too.

You can tell randomfrank is a raging casual by the fact he glances over the benefits of 8000hz in gaming. This isnt designed as an enthsiasts board, corsair boards are the fastest out there in terms of latency and this should be no exception

I think Cherry MX red is not bad in terms of quality. chinese switches that claims to have 80 million life cycle does not make sense. I have seen lots of razer or other maker with their own switch fails with in a year or so. Even though I love kailh box jades and navy some of gaming keyboards that uses kailh fail with in a year.

What's the point of those bulky-ass custom cables? I understand the utility of the coil of you move your keyboard a lot. But what purpose does the "aviator" connector have? If you wanna swap keyboards you can just unplug the connector directly on the board. That "aviator" shit just looks bulky and pointless. And possibly another failure point. Is there an upside I'm missing??
