Hi! I was thinking of compiling a list of vintage keyboards with around 6kro+ in order for easy access for those that want to find it. I could not find such a list anywhere that i looked and i was wondering if any of you knew of models i could add to my document! thanks!

@fohat: What does "BBC" signify on that PCB? I suppose it is not the "British Broadcasting Corporation".

IBM Model Fs have hardware capable of NKRO. I can't recall offhand if the XT or AT controllers actually supported this.

Okay. Perfect, Ill add the omnikey and the F(with controller) I also was told the Pingmaster had NKRO as well?

iirc the board is capable of NKRO, but hasu's TMK converter has some limitations: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyb ... d/e6lhnes/

Also, an easy place to start is by searching the wiki w/index.php?search=nkro&title=Special%3 ... fulltext=1 for "nkro", "n-key rollover", "6kro" etc, although you have to sort out a lot of chaff.

I believe some Datacomp DFK-191/192's have NKRO (at least mine appears to although I still haven't got it working, pretty sure the controller is fried.)

Oh shit!
Looks like past me has accidentally misinformed some folks.
IIRC, this was fixed in an update to the converter.
Though the only real solution here would be to ask Hasu

lol I did not make the username connection.

I linked that post because it does reflect my experience with that board + converter. I ought to dig it out and verify but my pingmaster box is at the back of the keyboard pile right now.

I mean, it certainly could be the case. But I could have sworn that Hasu said elsewhere that he had fixed the low rollover with a later firmware revision. Curse my soggy noodle brain memory.
