I think it has to do with USB input or P2 input and ghosting/anti-ghosting, so yeah usually gaming keyboards can do it correct. I'm going to test it with mechanical (for gaming) keyboard when i get home later (it's around $130)

The problem is that the matrix of a keyboard can only handle a max of key presses.
It's they way they are built, and most keyboards have the same problem.

*Cooooooooough
"On some keyboards, if both shift keys are held down simultaneously only some letters can be typed. For example, on the Dell keyboard Model RT7D20 only 16 letters can be typed. This phenomenon is known as "masking" and is a fundamental limitation of the way the keyboard electronics are designed."
