Razer Reveals Blackwidow Chroma Keyboard V2; Includes Yellow Switch Option, Wrist Rest Pads and More

Razer is known for their quality PC gaming products, in fact I am using one of their mouses right now. The company recently announced another addition to their gaming keyboard lineup, the Blackwidow Chroma Keyboard V2.

This keyboard contains brand new features that previous ones didn’t include. The Blackwidow Chroma Keyboard V2 will feature a new Razer Yellow switch, allowing players to enjoy a “linear and silent design and reduced travel distance” with keys being “pressed faster than ever before.”

The new Yellow switch is designed with FPS and MOBA games in mind, due to the high number of keys being pressed over the course of a playing session. Below you will find a list of all the keyboard’s features:

  • Razer™ Mechanical Switches with 50 g actuation force (Green)
  • Razer™ Mechanical Switches with 45 g actuation force (Orange / Yellow)
  • 80 million keystroke life span
  • Razer Chroma™ customizable backlighting with 16.8 million color options
  • Ergonomic magnetic wrist rest
  • Razer Synapse enabled
  • 10 key roll-over anti-ghosting
  • Fully programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording
  • Gaming mode option
  • USB pass-through
  • 3.5 mm 4-pole audio pass through jack
  • 1000 Hz Ultrapolling
  • Braided fiber cable

The Blackwidow Chroma Keyboard V2 is priced at $169.99/€199.99, and here is multiple pictures to help you appreciate how good it looks.
