Ye that is just marketing at hand. Thats for the keyboard itself but thats just a tiny little part in the whole input chain. Internet connection, computer, monitor, your own reaction time, how fast your finger is moving, your own hand movement speed and accuracy. That lower input lag wont change anything. That being said my ocd have me searching for love input lag keyboard eventually lol.

What I find interesting about the low input lag stuff is: I've seen testing somewhere about normal USB mechanical keyboards that shows that the lag is changing a lot between your key presses. For example, sometimes the signal of you doing a key press shows up after 8 ms, but then sometimes it needs 16ms to send the signal. With the special low input lag keyboard, I'd hope that the best and worst lag times are closer in comparison to a normal keyboard.

I'm guessing lag if it's constant would be totally fine for your muscle memory. If it would be always 12 ms for example, your brain would learn to take those 12 ms into account while training itself on how to time finger movements. But if it's sometimes faster and sometimes slower latency, this could maybe sabotage muscle memory? With the special keyboard, the low latency itself perhaps helps less than the fact that it makes the slowest and fastest signal more similar.
