TUF Gaming K7


Battlefield domination beckons with the light-speed actuation of TUF Gaming K7's Optical-Mech switches. Choose linear or tactile to match your play style, and exploit the compact design to stay in command. K7 is water and dust resistant, topped with aircraft-grade aluminum, comes with a detachable wrist rest, and has per-key Aura Sync illumination – for a fast and fun way to light up your gaming world.

TUF Optical-Mech Switches

Each TUF Optical-Mech switch casts a beam of infrared light. Pressing a key links the beam for near-instant actuation. This unique design eliminates the 5ms debounce delay intrinsic to traditional metal contacts, slashing total actuation time to just 0.2ms – so it's quicker than the blink of an eye!



  • Tactile feedback with an audible click

    50 g actuation force

    3.55mm travel distance

    1.5mm actuation point

  • Linear response without audible click

    47 g actuation force

    3mm travel distance

    1.5mm actuation point


Debouncing Comparison

Traditional mechanical switches actuate through physical contact, resulting in a release-and-return lag known as a debounce delay. Optical-Mech switches make no contact, eliminating the debounce delay – so you're able to game at the speed of light.

Actuation Comparison


Traditional linear switches must reach to a ‘reset' position after actuation, in readiness to register the next keypress. As Optical-Mech switches actuate by light, the reset and activation points are essentially identical, saving potentially vital fractions of a second with each keypress.

Mechanical Switches

Tactile switches require a little extra force to reach the tactile and operating positions, and have the same brief return-to-reset-position delay as linear switches. With Optical-Mech switches, these two positions are reached at the same time and with less overall travel.

IP56 Water & Dust Resistance

TUF Gaming K7 delivers industry-leading IP56 water and dust resistance, while our Optical-Mech switches are rated for up to 100-million clicks – or twice the lifespan of traditional mechanical switches. A top plate machined from aircraft-grade aluminum provides stylish exterior strength, and we've even nano-coated the PCB to prevent internal metal parts oxidizing.


Compact Design

TUF Gaming K7's compact, frameless form lets you reach every key easily, so you'll game without distraction. This floating-keycaps design  also makes for swift cleaning, with clear all-round access to brush or blow away dust and crumbs.

Magnetic & Ergonomic Wrist Rest

TUF Gaming K7 comes with an ergonomic wrist rest crafted from thick memory foam and finished with leatherette, for cool comfort that molds naturally to your posture. Strong magnets keep this cushioned pad in place during play, and also enable it to be rapidly detached when you need to change your angle of attack or stow your keyboard in a bag.

Aura Sync

Powered by Aura Sync, the entire color spectrum and a range of dynamic lighting effects are at your command to create a keyboard that's uniquely yours – with an individually-controllable LED under every key. TUF Gaming K7's RGB illumination is also easily synced with the extensive Aura ecosystem for gaming environment that really shines.
