With the ability to measure the exact amount of light that goes through the switch stem, Razer™ Analog Optical Switches can detect how far a key is pressed instead of being restricted to a traditional binary input.
RAZER™ ANALOG OPTICAL SWITCHES VS TRADITIONAL SWITCHES
A NEW DIMENSION OF CONTROL
Because of the unique way these switches actuate, it introduces a trio of game-changing advantages not possible on traditional gaming keyboards.
With an actuation range of 1.5 to 3.6 mm, Razer™ Analog Optical Switches can be adjusted via Razer Synapse to meet your preference—offering different kinds of benefits at every height.
At shorter actuation heights, the switches become lighter and more responsive, making them ideal for game genres where reaction and speed are critical.
At medium actuation heights, the switches are a well-rounded option for general gaming as they offer a good balance of speed and weight.
At full actuation height, the switches require deeper keystrokes which can feel more solid and satisfying, especially for typing.
Razer™ Analog Optical Switches work in a similar way, so you are no longer restricted to the basic 8-way WASD movement found on traditional keyboards, and can instead enjoy smooth 360-degree motion that’s crucial for genres such as FPS, racing, and flight sims.
Finer Movement Control
If you’ve ever used an analog thumbstick or joystick, you’ll know how intuitive and nuanced in-game movement feels with that type of control—the more the stick is pushed, the faster you go or steeper the turn, and vice versa.

STREAMLINE YOUR ACTIONS
Razer™ Analog Optical Switches can register two actions in one keypress, cutting down on the number of inputs you need to make so that your execution is cleaner and quicker.
Unlike macros which lock you into a fixed series of actions, dual-step actuation provides more flexibility as you can delay or choose not to carry out the next action, so you can be more reactive to what’s happening.
