Hardware giants Razer have launched the Blackwidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2 gaming keyboard for competitive gaming.
The keyboard is the first to introduce Razer’s new Instant Trigger Technology (ITT), which claims to enable the industry’s fastest response rate for a gaming keyboard. This means that upon actuation of a single key, Razer’s ITT cancels any delay between key actuations to provide rapid response from the keyboard to the system. The Razer BlackWidow TE Chroma V2 features a choice of Razer’s mechanical Green, Orange and Yellow switches. Yellow switches are silent and rapid, with no tactile bump or click which offers a 1.2mm actuation point making it 40% faster than standard mechanical key switches.
Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, and CEO gave an overview of the keyboard:
“Gamers rely on their gear to react and respond as fast as they do no matter the situation, from landing a headshot to combining ultimate abilities as a team. Timing is critical. The BlackWidow TE Chroma V2’s Instant Trigger Technology works hand-in-hand with our Yellow switches, setting the bar for the industry’s fastest response rating on a keyboard with the ultimate combination of hardware and software.”
The Blackwidow TE Chroma V2 has a tenkeyless layout and a magnetic wrist rest that is detachable allowing for easier portable play. Each key is individually backlit allowing for customizable lighting with a range of 16.8 million colours and the effect and colour schemes can be synched across devices.
The BlackWidow Chroma TE V2 is available for order now from RazerStore.com and will cost £134.99/$139.99.
