Tesoro teases new IR key switches for Computex

Computex 2016 - Tesoro teases a brand new mechanical keyboard powered by IR key switches for "extreme durability and breakneck response times."




Although Tesoro has recently unveiled the Gram Spectrum RGB mechanical keyboards outfitted with Kailh's custom 3.5mm travel distance Agile switches, the company plans to push the bar with new IR key switches. The optical-based infrared key switches should be a big jump in speed over the low-profile Agile switches, offering faster response by "eliminating metal bounce."


Here's what Tesoro said in their official press release: "The new switches use infrared technology to register keystrokes eliminating metal bounce and oxidation meaning extreme durability and breakneck response times. The new switches will reportedly offer advanced anti-particle and spill-resistant abilities and allow users to customize key switches on the keyboard."


Official details are scarce, and we'll be sure to bring you all the latest details on Tesoro's new IR mechanical keyboards once they're revealed at Taipei.
