The impressive Optical mechanical switches aren't the only impressive addition to GIGABYTE's latest keyboard, the Aorus K9 is also splash proof with GIGABYTE claiming "Without exposed metal connectors, it is fully splash proof, even enabling use under water". The optical Flaretech switches also eliminate chatter, this achieved by the use of fully optical actuation, rather than electromechanical.
