Razer Advances Technology with New Huntsman Elite Opto-Mechanical Keyboard

Razer showed off a new keyboard recently at E3 and now has unveiled it to the public. The keyboard, known as the Huntsman Elite, will use Razer’s Opto-Mechanical Switch that features the introduction of infrared lighting. We got to play with the prototype and there is literally no keyboard on the market quite like it. The satisfaction from the superb click of the switches and the instantaneous response thanks to the infrared light will make this the top keyboard on the market. The light signal will instantly actuate the switch command from each press. Razer even had a 3D-printed model of the switch with the light to show off. Keys will be interchangeable and the keyboard will have RGB options. It is a wired keyboard, but the comfort and precision it provides is unmatched. The Huntsman Elite also features a multi-funtion digital dial that is customizable through Razer’s Synapse 3 software.

As for the build quality, the Huntsman Elite features a solid aluminum matte top plate that increased the sturdiness of the chassis. It will also feature 10-key rollover for up to ten simultaneous keypresses and anti-ghosting. A magnetic leatherette wrist rest is optional and also features Razer Chroma enabled lighting for 24 customization zones. Users can also rebind buttons and save all profile configurations with hybrid on-board memory that ties into a cloud. The Huntsman Elite retails for $199.99 and is available now on the RazerStore.
