Razer, one of the more premium names when it comes to the world of gaming hardware, is now back with the Razer BlackWidow series. The Razer BlackWidow range will now come with a couple of improved models – in addition to a single new edition. Touted to be the “world’s best mechanical keyboard series”, this first update would usher in the Razer BlackWidow 2013 that delivers heightened anti-ghosting and Razer Synapse 2.0 cloud technology. Its enhanced anti-ghosting capability is said to be able to support up to 10 simultaneous key presses in game mode – and not only that, additional improvements such as an anti-fingerprint matte black finish surface are also in place.
There is also increased efficiency and performance thrown into the mix, with Razer Synapse 2.0 being able to automatically synchronizing user profile settings to a cloud server, paving the way for customization of the keyboard as well as additional related Razer products using but a single login.
Apart from that, the spanking new BlackWidow Tournament Edition which is in tow will be a tenkeyless mechanical keyboard that comes in a simple, elegant form factor, making it ideal for portability, not to mention mgiving you an advantage at tournaments. Without its numpad, the Razer BlackWidow Tournament layout will be lighter than usual, and is highly compact so that gamers with limited desk space will be able to get their gaming done no matter how restrictive a space is.
The BlackWidow 2013, BlackWidow Ultimate and Black Widow Tournament will also come in standard and Stealth versions, with the Stealth models boasting of brown mechanical switches which are said to deliver superior tactility and a faster response time. Expect it to retail for $139.99 a pop – and if you happen to live in Europe, it will cost €139.99 across the pond as it arrives in the markets later this August. [Press Release]
