An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard of Keychron Q5 Max 96% Layout QMK/VIA Wireless Custom Mechanical Keyboard

An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard

A powerful ARM Cortex-M4 chip (MCU) equipped with 256K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is 1000 Hz right out of the box on 2.4 GHz and wired modes (90 Hz on Bluetooth mode), which makes the latency hardly noticeable even in competitive games.

Double-Gasket Design

The Double Gasket Design is a new innovative structure in the industry. In addition to the gaskets on the plates, we added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases to significantly reduce the acoustic resonance between the metals and reduce the noise of the impacted metals.

Experience the next level of key sounds and comfort with our gasket mount design together with a flexible PC (Polycarbonate) plate. This design combination allows the keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and improves the overall typing sound.

Suitable for All Devices

Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Q5 Max comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You can now save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system.

Great!

Shocked by the heft of this thing. It feels like I could use it to defend my home from zombies and then compose an email right after. The only issue was I needed a wrist rest for comfort. The keyboard is a bit too high without one. But the looks, and feel, top marks.
