gaming keyboard

A computer keyboard designed for gamers. Although there are a variety of controllers with dials and levers for video games, keyboards are also widely used. The keys on a gaming keyboard require less depression, resulting in faster action compared with regular keyboards. Gaming keyboards may also have an extra set of keys that are user configured for macros (commonly used key sequences). See video game controller, WASD keys and macro.
