New Razer Gaming Keyboard Revealed


May 4, 2013
PC gaming company Razer has announced the latest addition to its Chroma series of gaming keyboards, the Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma Keyboard.

Available now from the company's website for $140, the Tournament Edition Chroma Keyboard has 16.8 million customizable color options, a detachable USB cable, and all the keys you'd expect, of course. This is all packed into a "sleek, compact form factor," Razer writes.

"Users can define their own key zones, customize lighting effects, and add multiple effects layers on each zone for a personalized lighting display using Razer Synapse," the company explains.

Head to the keyboard's website to tinker with the color options to see what it has to offer.

The Tournament Edition Chroma keyboard also comes with mechanical switches that have "optimized actuation" and a "distinct tactile feel" that should help players have better reaction times in gaming sessions. Finally, the keyboard has been rated to withstand up to 60 million keystrokes, Razer said.
