Earlier today, the gaming equipment giant unveiled its latest flagship peripheral that boasts a reworked chasis, is filled to the brim with RGB goodness, and has many other bells and whistles that you could only anticipate from a Razer product. It’s the long-awaited sequel to the BlackWidow V2, simply called the BlackWidow V3.
Improved media switches, DoubleShot ABS keycaps, an even more ergonomic (however that is measured) wrist rest, brighter switches, and support for the latest version of the Razer Chroma RGB lighting are all part of the package here.
Regarding that durability claim, Razer’s promise is that its new mechanical switches can endure 80 million keystrokes, which is up to twice as much as the last model of the keyboard. Interestingly enough, it also focused on their audio feedback by offering a new type of a Yellow Mechanical Switch that uses a silicone sound dampener and hence offers the best of bost worlds – feedback and silence.
Well, more silent, tactile feedback, to be more specific.
Besides, the company is also launching the BlackWidow V3 Tenkeyless, a virtually identical product without a numpad and the wrist rest. Well, it’s not included in the package, which then rounds up to $100 in total, depending on the market. The “real” thing will retail at $140, starting from October 6th.
