What is a gaming keyboard? What specific requirements does a keyboard have before it’s considered in the “gaming” category? There is only one thing. Yeah, a lot of people will tell you different things like, a specific number of anti-ghosting key suppression (roll over), or the fact that it features mechanical key switches, or that the keys themselves light up, but none of these things are correct. Marketing is the only thing that defines a device as a gaming keyboard. Marketing and marketing alone is the only requirement for a regular keyboard to make the jump from standard desktop keyboard to a “gaming” one. In steps the Rosewill RK-8100.
