Cherry MX switches updated to last double as long

Posted on Friday, January 10 2020 @ 19:49:44 CET by

Cherry announces they've updated their popular Cherry MX switches. The new version has a much longer lifespan and also has a shorter bounce.

Thanks to Hyperglide the switches now last 100 million actuations, double as much as before, and thanks to Gold Crosspoint technology and new manufacturing processes they now have a bounce time of less than one millisecond.
100 million actuations thanks to Hyperglide
An increase in the gliding surface area on the front side of the stem (opposite the TLS surface) in conjunction with the eight guide rails on the inside of the upper part of the switch housing results in wobble-free operation and increased durability. This technical solution is called "Hyperglide" and doubles the number of guaranteed actuations: CHERRY MX RED, MX BLACK, MX BROWN and MX SPEED SILVER now allow more than 100 million keystrokes without loss of quality instead of the previous 50 million.

Optimized Gold Crosspoint Technology
CHERRY didn't just update the stem, but its Gold Crosspoint technology received an update as well. By modifying the bending radius of the contacts, the contact force has been optimised. Additionally, since November 1st, 2019, all MX switches are manufactured in the brand-new, ultra-modern production facility in Germany using advanced machines and refined manufacturing processes. This has resulted in a significantly shorter bounce time of less than one millisecond.
As the name hasn't changed, the only way to see if a Cherry MX-based keyboard has the new switches is to look at the specifications. If it has a lifespan of 100 million keystrokes and bounce time of under 1ms, the keyboard will be quipped with the new model..
