We’ve already seen benchmarks from AMD’s higher-end Ryzen offerings, but it looks like we have even more. These new results include the 6-core, 12-thread R5 1600X and the four core 1300 as well.

Cherry is a name by now you are probably very familiar with. They are the makers of the mechanical key switches that are in many of the best gaming keyboards out there. If you didn’t know they also make their own keyboards. The MX Board 6.0 actually still remains their flagship gaming keyboard even though it has been out for a couple years now. Their mechanical switches are known for their amazing quality, so we are really excited to see what a 100% Cherry-made keyboard can do. Let’s take a look at the MX Board 6.0 and see what it is all about!
