The technical data of a switch can be hard to understand. Our goal here is to demystify how these specs affect feel and sound. We hope this helps you discover whether or not a switch might be a good fit.
A switch's actuation force, or force required to trigger a keystroke, on the Gateron G Pro 3.0 White requires 38g of force. This is lighter than 93% of other switches' actuation force in our selection.
A switch's actuation force is based on the entire switch design.
Bottoming out, or pressing all the way down, on this Gateron G Pro 3.0 White switch requires 45g of force. With a lighter bottom-out than 98% of switches in our selection, the Gateron G Pro 3.0 White is considered lightweight.
A switch's bottom-out force is dependent solely on its spring weight.
What matters more: Actuation or Bottom-out Force?
If you prefer to bottom-out when you type, bottom-out force is the more relevant measurement. If you do not, then actuation force is more relevant.
The Gateron G Pro 3.0 White is factory lubed. This is done to reduce friction and improve the feel of the switch. Other effects include reduced noise and if a tactile switch, slightly decreased tactility. Choosing a factory lubed switch saves you time and energy from having to lube the switch yourself. Factories have drastically improved the lubing process over the years, meaning more and more factory-lubed switches are great to use out-of-the-box.
Top Housing: Polycarbonate
Polycarbonate is the Gateron G Pro 3.0 White's top housing material. The use of polycarbonate in housings creates a sharper, higher-pitched, and crisper sound profile. In part, this is because polycarbonate is a relatively stiffer plastic, which leads to a more clear and resonant sound profile. Aesthetically speaking, if a switch features a clear housing, it is more likely than not to be polycarbonate. Therefore, due to its translucency, polycarbonate is especially useful to have in the top housing of a switch if you plan to use RGB lighting.
Bottom Housing: Nylon
Nylon is the Gateron G Pro 3.0 White's bottom housing material. Nylon is a classic switch housing material. Typing on switches that use nylon elicits a deeper and fuller sound profile. In part, this is because nylon is a relatively softer plastic and absorbs more sound than harder plastics, thereby creating a duller and rounder sound.
A note on housings
The Gateron G Pro 3.0 White uses different materials in its top and bottom housings. As such, the qualities each housing material brings to the switch will be split between the bottom and the top of the switch.
When you press down on this switch you will feel the qualities of the bottom housing: the bottom housing has more of an impact on the bottom-out sound and feel. On the other hand, the top housing will have more of an impact on the sound when you let go of a key.
Mount type: Plate (3-pin)
The Gateron G Pro 3.0 White is a Plate (3-pin) mount switch. Plate mount, or 3-pin, switches offer the most flexibility across all keyboard options. They are compatible with all PCBs.
Stem construction: Standard
The cross-shaped stem construction is the most standard as well as the most classic, as it is derived from the original Cherry switches.
A clacky keyboard switch produces a sharp and snappy sound when pressed. The sound can be described as crisp, bright, and percussive.
Creamy keyboard switches offer a smooth and buttery typing experience. Frequently, this is due to having lubricant applied in the switch at the factory, but this could also be because of specific materials. When typing on a creamy switch, you can expect a silky sensation. It's like gliding your fingers across the keys with ease, as they effortlessly melt into each keystroke.
A subdued switch produces a dampened sound when pressed. It's not completely silent per se, yet it is also offers a more subtle sound signature when compared to most switches.
A silky switch refers to a switch that offers an exceptionally smooth typing experience. These switches enhance the overall smoothness of the typing feel and minimze resistance when pressing and releasing keys.
A mild mechanical keyboard switch offer a more gentle typing experience compared to switches with more pronounced characteristics. With these switches, the sound and feel will be approachable to most, as its qualities all stand in a safe, middle-ground zone.
A neutral switch has a moderate actuation force requirement and a moderate sound profile. This makes the switch suitable for most intents and purposes: whether or not you are a beginner or advanced, or if you are planning to use these at home or work.
A feathery switch is exceptionally light to press and requires little exertion from your fingers. This reduces finger fatigue, as the light actuation force reduces the strain on your fingers, making it comfortable for extended typing sessions such as for gaming, school, or work.
A subtle switch has a gentle resistance which is not feather but still maintains a light typing feel. Moreover, the sound signature will not be resonant, meaning it is suitable for shared spaces.
Easy-to-press keyboard switches offer gentle resistance during key presses, requiring minimal force to activate. The light actuation force makes typing effortless and comfortable, reducing finger fatigue during extended typing sessions. Overall, these switches enhance the typing experience by offering a responsive and low-impact typing feel.
