Hi Jiang,

The keypress end-to-end latency metric we have is calculated from when the
keypress is registered in hardware to when a character is drawn on the
scereen. This involves several parties including the GPU and browser
processes which are all running in the same trust domain and benefit from
parallelism through hyperthreading.
