Based on the post I read on the IDEA zero-latency implementation, it seems it only applies to the first keypress. Further, the testing tool used for these results is specifically designed to measure the optimization that the zero-latency mode uses. The tool does support rapid keypress testing, but I don't think it was used for this article. I think it was skewed to make the zero-latency mode look like the winner, but that's just a hunch. In either case, independent results with more real world conditions would answer some of these questions.Interesting. It is certainly an area we should investigate. The use case I would think users really care about is when they're in the midst of writing a bunch of code and are touch typing, watching what they're typing on the screen. First keypress isn't really a driving issue.
