Razer has just launched details of their new Razer BlackWidow mechanical gaming keyboard with an extended lifespan of over 50 million keystrokes.
It is also equipped with five additional macro keys with on-the-fly recording and allows you to instantly swap between up to 10 profiles without going into complex driver menus, to keep you in the game at all times.
Mechanical keyboards are great for gaming as they provide that all important accurate feedback while playing using a different technology to register key presses than standard keyboards.
Rather than using the common membrane and scissor-switch style key designs, each key uses its own mechanical switch underneath the cap to actuate the stroke. Mechanical keys require less vertical travel distance to register a press, and therefore add speed and accuracy.
The new Razer BlackWidow Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is available to pre-order for $79.99
