    The Steelseries Apex M800 features newly designed QS1 mechanical switches with 25% faster actuation compared to traditional switches. The low profile layout of the M800 allows for quick, seamless transition between keys and across the keyboard, minimizing fatigue.
    Last but not least, the M800 features an additional CPU dedicated to processing key presses, along with N-Key rollover you get lag free gaming and ultimate head mashing abilities knowing that all your keys will register, and register fast!

    Well, factually speaking, there's new switches, the keyboard is probably a first in terms of low profile while mechanical, and the fact that it has double the amount of processors as my computer has makes this a FAST keyboard.

    What makes it even more fast is the late night 5 man, when everyone is on their caffeine high, and then someone hits a magical KennyS flick. That's fast.

    OH! I FORGOT THE RACING STRIPES!

    The new Steelseries m800 has a 25% less travel distance than standard cherry mx key switches. This drastically improves performance and reaction times. and hey the cool colours don't disappoint

    It's all about the 1's and the 0's. They are the true speed!

    The Steelseries Apex M800 is the world's fastest keyboard because it has the specially designed QS1 switch, a low profile layout for shorter travel distances and dual processors to handle keypresses with no lag.

    It's also sold by Scorptec and Scorptec don't sell anything that isn't fast right? ;)

    This keyboard is the world's fastest because of it's patented fusion reactor core powered processor. The extra fingers you'll grow will make you a moba god.

    It's the fastest due to the super nerd who knows how to finger bash it the best.

    Fastest for what exactly?

    Fastest key mashing (typing, QT events in games, etc)
    APEX M800 uses the specially designed QS1 switch with a shorter actuation point that's 25% less than a cherry style mechanical switch. Having a centred LED makes for a nice aesthetic bonus as you can uniformly light up the keys rather than just the top part.
    Additional dedicated processor for key presses means no missed inputs, keyboard sends every keypress you make no matter how fast you type.
    Flatter keyboard layout reduces travel distance between keys so you can shave fractions of fractions of seconds between keypresses.

    Fastest gaming
    Macros, macros and more macros! Unlimited macros actually. Highly programmable macros means you can record loads of key presses and fire them off with a single finger stroke.
    Customisable LED patterns that can be set for each application and loaded automatically means you can see which are the relevant keys at a quick glance, no more mashing the wrong buttons that aren't even bound to a ingame action.

    What makes it fast? The customisable racing stripes?

    The custom QS1 switches that have a lower throw and actuation distance! The dedicated macro keys! The extensive Steelseries engine enabling further macro customisation and per-key lighting! The dual processors that enable NKRO and a simultaneous 256 key press! The lower profile design of the keyboard itself and the upright positioning of the keys! The phat spacebar!

    Because I need a keyboard with QS1 switches have a 3mm throw depth, a 1.5mm actuation and only require a 45cN actuation force. That makes it fast

    Well you've created the perfect switch called QS1 switch. QS1 switches have a 3mm throw depth, a 1.5mm actuation and only require a 45cN actuation force. The result a smooth linear action and 25% faster actuation than traditional mechanical switch.

    The low profile layout of the M800 allows for quick, seamless transition between keys and across the keyboard, minimizing fatigue.

    Because orange highlights.

    Oh, and this, because, it seems to be the correct answer. Though I prefer mine.
