With unique mechanical keys
In the wake of Gamescom in Cologne, Razer has decided it is time to launch its latest gaming peripherals, the BlackWidow and BlackWidow Ultimate wired keyboards that feature a unique tactile mechanical key architecture. Both the BlackWidow and BlackWidow Ultimate will be available as of September and, in addition to mechanical keys, will offer all the features that you would expect from a Razer branded keyboard.
The new tactile mechanical keys should offer greater precision and accuracy thanks to the key actuation points and should provide a greater response and tactile feedback similar to a mouse click, something that we haven't seen from a keyboard yet. In addition to the unique mechanical keys, the BlackWidow series will feature fully programmable keys with macro recording, five additional gaming keys, a 1ms response time and a gaming mode feature.
The BlackWidow Ultimate will include audio jacks, an extra USB port and a backlight illumination system with five levels of lightning. Both keyboards should be available as of next month with a price tag set at US $79.99/€79.99 for the BlackWidow and US $129.99/€129.99 for the BlackWidow Ultimate.
