Use our keyboard latency testing tool to precisely determine the condition your keyboard is in right now if you wish to test the keyboard’s rate of response.
The amount of time before data transfer really starts is known as latency. In the context of the keyboard, latency is the amount of time it requires for a keystroke to register from pressing a key to the device reflecting the updates on the monitor.
For instance, if you press any key on the keyboard, the duration it took for the information to reach the computer after the key was pressed and the switch was activated, and the moment the computer received the indication from the keyboard, it began executing the action that the key had triggered.
Most regular users rarely bring up keyboard latency. However, keyboard latency becomes a significant issue in multiplayer games.
