Cherry MX Ultra-Low Profile and Alienware m15 R4 Mechanical keys for flat Gaming laptops
With MX Ultra Low Profile Cherry has developed mechanical key switches, which can also be found in shallow Gaming laptops easily. The first mobile computer for gamers with cherry’s MX ULP, the slim Alienware m15 R4 with Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080 is.
Gaming laptops with mechanical keyboards, usually with the MX switches, Cherry, gave it time and again. As compared to conventional Notebook Keyboards, mechanical switches, are characterized by a longer service life and, above all, by a more precise Actuation, which is of particular importance for gamers. This includes Features like Anti-Ghosting and N-Key Rollover and protect against false inputs come. However, these mobile computers were either quite thick, or the Keyboard had to be at the front of the housing is moved to the right to bulky mechanical switches for each of the keys. The Touchpad then had to back either next to or even on the keypad. With the extremely shallow MX-Ultra-Low-Profile Switches, your height is 3.5 mm, can also be fitted flat Gaming laptops with mechanical Keyboards, without the traditional Position of the Keyboard and Touchpad to give up.
Completely new switch Design
The developers at Cherry in the upper Palatinate, Auerbach, where the switches are also produced, had to ride for the MX Ultra Low Profile (ULP) new paths to the Switches so flat build. You have deleted from the Design to the usual housing with a plunger and the cross of recording and, instead, a two-piece key cap developed recording made of stainless steel, which is biased via a spring. This design is intended to allow a very precise release. The switch is around 70 percent flatter than the lowest Cherry MX Low Profile with a conventional design. Other components specifically designed for the switch-developed Gold-Crosspoint contact System, two translucent high-temperature Polymer components and the metal frame. This is achieved according to Cherry, a tactile switching characteristics with a Total travel of 1.8 mm. For the Actuation force of 45 Zentinewton is required, which increases the tactile point on 65 Zentinewton. The acoustic Feedback in the Form of the typical Cherry-Click is also available.
The MX ULP is the first mechanical SMD-key switches from Cherry, which is soldered directly on the PCB. For the single color or colorful button illumination competent SMD LED sits directly under the switch, and to allow a uniform illumination of the key caps.
Premiere in the Alienware m15 R4
Their first appearance in the super flat Cherry switches have a 15.6-inch Gaming Notebook Alienware m15 R4 Dell, where it is available as an optional Extra can be configured. The 2 cm flat and 2.5 kg in weight device is equipped with Intel Core processors 10. Generation to the i9 10980HK with 8 Cores and an Nvidia Geforce RTX graphics card equipped. Here, the choice is up to the RTX 3080. For the cooling, Dell uses a Vapor-Chamber-System. The memory can be up to 32 GB in size, and the mass storage consist of up to three M. 2 SSDs, two of them in RAID-0 configuration.
When you Display Full HD IPS stand-Panels up to 300 Hz, or a UHD OLED Panel for the election. The entry-level model with a Core i7-10870H, RTX 3060 and 144 Hz Full HD Display comes with the Cherry Keyboard on 2.299 Euro (EIA), the Top configuration fails with 4.799 Euro (SRP) to beech. For the RGB-lit Cherry Keyboard, the surcharge is EUR 100, gives Dell a lifespan of up to 15 million keystrokes per key.
