4 Types of Game Keyboard - Maybe many of you ask what is the difference between a technician's keyboard and a regular keyboard, and why the price is quite expensive compared to a regular keyboard? In this article, I will review what is the difference between a regular keyboard and some of the components on a mechanical keyboard. Gamers, there are various gaming keyboards from various brands on the market. From around that, surely what we often encounter is a gaming keyboard with the same size as Full Keys and Ten Key Less or TKL.

It is not surprising because the two types of keyboards have been able to provide all the facilities for all writing needs, starting from writing assignments to playing games. For all the exact roles of computerized tasks, the full keys keyboard remains a special option


4 Types of Game Keyboard

But apparently, apart from the two modes or types of gaming keyboards, there are still several types of keyboards that are classified based on shape. The difference is definitely in the number of buttons and size. Here are the 4 types of gaming keyboards:


Keyboards 40%

This is the smallest written equal size keyboard on the market today. There are indeed some manufacturers that make the same size keyboard smaller again, but it is not classified as a writing keyboard.

This 40% keyboard is only left with all letter keys by adding a few sympathetic keys, such as Backspace, Control, Enter, and others.


Keyboards 60%

This keyboard is slightly larger than the 40% keyboard. By prioritizing a concise design, this keyboard eliminates the top row of roles (including the Escape key), arrow keys, and several other keys.

The 60% layout is especially popular with mechanical keyboard enthusiasts who need a shorter gaming keyboard, but still has a full range of function keys. This 60% keyboard has 61 keys for American standard (ANSI) or 62 keys for international standard (ISO).


Keyboards 75%

The larger the return of the 60% keyboard, there is a 75% keyboard. The keyboard is actually a simplification of the TKL keyboard. The reduction in the size of the TKL was carried out by eliminating several buttons such as the arrow keys, the up and down buttons, to the PS/PB/PL buttons.


TKL Keyboard

We often encounter this type of gaming keyboard, such as the Rexus Legionnaire MX5.1 mechanical keyboard or the Rexus Battlefire K9TKL. Mentioned Ten Key Less because this keyboard removes all numeric keys that collect ten. This term then became more often used on the keyboard in this number of 87 keys.

Actually, it's not appropriate to mention Ten Key Less because the number of keys that are reduced is 17 keys, but because it refers to the number of numeric keys that are omitted, that's why this keyboard is called TKL.


Full Keys Keyboard

As mentioned earlier, this keyboard is a keyboard with the most complete keys among all other keyboards. The Rexus gaming keyboard range is dominated by these full-size keyboards, such as the Rexus Legionnaire MX10, Legionnaire MX3.1, Legionnaire MX3.2, K9D, K9 keyboards, and many others.

This keyboard has 104 keys that are used for all writing roles, this keyboard can be used for all types of games that exist today. The size is too wide to make some keyboard manufacturers start to circumcise the buttons in it to mini keyboards like the one above.


Two Standard Keyboard

Although there are several types or types based on size, standard keyboards are still based on two special standards, namely the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Standards Organization (ISO). ISO is applied in several countries in the UK and Europe.

The difference is probably too significant. On an ISO standard keyboard, there is a unique two-line Enter key and a smaller left Shift key.

So the difference is not in some of the letters. Because so far there is regarding the layout of the QWERTY letters which are seen as part of ANSI. In fact, QWERTY is the standard key layout for most English keyboards. Some use the standard AZERTY (France) or QWERTZ (Germany).
