Best Gaming Keyboards in 2024

A good gaming setup isn't complete without a good gaming keyboard, and if you are planning to get one for yourself this year, you have come to the right page. In this listicle, we have listed some excellent gaming keyboards you can get in 2024 to add to your gaming setup and enjoy your favourite games to their fullest.

Sitting in 2024, you can find all kinds of gaming keyboards on the market, ranging from keyboards with LED screens to compact ones like 60% boards. However, when it comes to choosing the perfect gaming keyboard, it all comes down to, what enthusiasts would say, your preference!

Things to consider before buying a gaming keyboard!

Now, most high-end and mid-range gaming keyboards are mechanical keyboards, which means they come with mechanical key switches and stabilizers. So, as mentioned before, there are a few things that you should think about before getting a gaming keyboard. These include layout, switches, and connectivity. 

The layout of the keyboard refers to the size of the board and how it has been configured. A full-size gaming keyboard comes with 104 keys and includes the arrow-cluster area and the NumPad. These boards are naturally larger and take up more space on a desk. Coming down from full-size keyboards, there are 80% keyboards or Tenkeyless keyboards, 75% keyboards, and 60% keyboards. These keyboards come with a lesser number of keys and are naturally smaller than full-size gaming keyboards.

Then, comes the mechanical switches! There are a ton of options available when it comes to mechanical switches. However, most gaming keyboards come with linear switches with low actuations. While the linear nature of the switches delivers a smooth press, the low actuation allows lag-free input in games.

Lastly, connectivity is another important factor to consider for gaming keyboards. While most modern gaming keyboards come with wireless functionality, if you want low-latency inputs from your keyboard, you need a wired board. However, there are a few exceptions that we have mentioned on our list below.

1. ASUS ROG Azoth

Layout 75%
Connectivity Tri-mode - USB-C, Bluetooth, 2.4GHz RF w/ ROG SpeedNova
Switch ROG NX Switches (Pre-lubed)
Price $233

ASUS has really hit it out of the park with its ROG Azoth gaming keyboard, bringing enthusiast-level keyboard features to gamers in the industry. The ROG Azoth is a 75% gaming keyboard, which means it does not have the NumPad area and the area above the arrow cluster. This makes the Azoth a perfect gaming keyboard with all the essential keys and a relatively compact form factor.

One of the unique features of the ROG Azoth is its OLED screen which is located at the top right corner of the keyboard, along with a three-way knob and a side button. The OLED screen can show the keyboard status, setting indicators, multimedia info, custom animations, and system parameters. The keyboard also has per-key RGB with various pre-set animations.

Another high-end feature of the Azoth is that it is one of the very few gaming keyboards that is gasket-mounted to provide the most comfortable typing and gaming experience. It is backed by internal silicone gaskets and also comes with sound-dampening foams inside. Even with all these materials inside, the keyboard can deliver fast wireless connections with low-latencies, thanks to the ROG SpeedNova wireless technology that uses a special 2.4GHz RF connection.

Additionally, the keyboard comes with ASUS NX switches (red, brown, and blue) which can be hot-swapped for any other compatible switches. In fact, the ROG Azoth comes with a lubing kit, including Krytox 205g0 and a lube station, in the box. Although it is a bit pricey, we think that it is one of the best gaming keyboards that you can get in 2024.

3. SteelSeries Apex Pro

Layout 80% or Tenkeyless (TKL)
Connectivity Wired
Switch OmniPoint 2.0 Adjustable HyperMagnetic Switches
Price $189

Now, if the 60% layout is not your gig for gaming keyboards and you want a larger keyboard with more keys, you might want to take a look at the SteelSeries Apex Pro TKL gaming keyboard. It is an 80% keyboard that comes with an OLED screen and a handy scroll wheel built into the board, much like on the ASUS ROG Azoth keyboard.

Furthermore, it uses hall-effect switches like the Wooting 60HE keyboard and can be configured to actuate at any pressing point using SteelSeries' software. The company calls the switches OmniPoint 2.0 Adjustable HyperMagnetic Switches (that is a mouthful!) and says that the switches have 20x quicker actuations and 11x faster response compared to regular mechanical switches.

2. Wooting 60HE

Layout 60% (Compact)
Connectivity Wired
Switch Analog switches with Hall-Effect Sensors w/ Rapid Trigger
Price $174

If you are a fan of speed and compact designs, we are sure you are going to love the Wooting 60HE. Although Wooting is not one of the major gaming brands out there, the company's 60HE gaming keyboard gained a lot of traction amongst gamers, primarily because of its rapid trigger switch design.

You see the Wooting 60HE uses special hall-effect, analog switches that can be configured to actuate and reset at any given point via Wooting's software. This essentially allows for more precise movements in online competitive games such as Valorant and Fortnite. Furthermore, the compact 60% design of the Wooting 60HE and the unique wrist strap at the side make it look super cool and different from regular gaming keyboards.

One of the disadvantages of the Wooting 60HE is that the keyboard remains in pre-order. What this means is that while you can order it from Wooting's official website via the provided link below, the keyboard might take a few weeks or months to reach your place.

4. ASUS ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless

Layout 1800 or 96-keys
Connectivity Tri-mode - USB-C, Bluetooth, 2.4GHz RF w/ ROG SpeedNova
Switch ROG NX Snow
Price $159

Another great option from ASUS is the ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless gaming keyboard. As mentioned in its long name, the Strix Scope II 96 Wireless is a 96-key, wireless gaming keyboard that comes with hot-swappable and pre-lubed NX switches and the ASUS ROG SpeedNova wireless technology, much like its elder sibling, the ROG Azoth. However, unlike the Azoth, this one comes with a toned-down NumPad and a multi-functional scroll wheel.
