Go to solution Solved by Samfisher,

It determines how many keys can be pressed and recognised together.  Ever play a music rhythm game and wonder why some keyboards Spacebar, A, S and L don't work together?  This is why.  N-Key rollover (true N-key rollover) allows all keys to be pressed and recognized together.

So i just bought my first mechanical keyboard and the difference between this and a cheap membrane one is incredible.

I was exploring it's functions and came across the N-key rollover but i don't really understand how would this help.

It's not for typing that's for sure (especially not the x8 one) so i guess it must be for games but when turned it on i didn't really feel much of a difference.

QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.
