This is really dependent on the specific mechanical switches in use.
I just tested my MS Mobile KB 6000 (low profile membrane keys), my Logitech Elite (regular depth membrane) and my Kinesis Advantage (cherry brown switches) by putting stacks of coins on keys until the depressed.
The MS low profile and Kinesis mechanical keyboards took the same amount of force (to the nearest penny), while the standard membrane Logitech took more force. (I didn't have enough coins to make its keys depress.)
