Razer Announces New Gaming Peripherals for Pi Day

Today, Razer has announced three new peripherals for Pi Day. March 14 is the numerical date of 3.14, which the actual number is infinite. Players can celebrate the mathematical holiday with a new keyboard, mouse and headset. The new Razer Blackwidow is implementing a good bit of technology from its Blackwidow Elite keyboard. The keyboard will include Razer’s Green Mechanical switches along with RGB integration with Chroma. Players can expect the tactile bump and distinct clicking sound when gaming or typing. This keyboard is designed for gaming and will also feature Razer’s dual wall design which minimizes key wobble and improves accuracy. Each key is rated for 80 million keystrokes. Lastly, the Razer Blackwidow will include hybrid on-board memory and cloud storage of up to five profiles. It retails for $119.99.

The newest headset is known as just the Razer Kraken. It builds upon the Razer Kraken V2 by implementing technology used in the Razer Kraken Pro headset. The new Kraken will feature large 50mm drivers to help deliver crisp sound. The retractable microphone has been improved to block out background noise. The biggest addition is the comfort features. The ear cups feature gel-cooling cushions and the headband is also thicker for more support. There is also a built-in eyewear channel for additional comfort and moisture-wicking fabric on the contact surface for long play sessions. The third generation Kraken will be available in green, Quartz Pink and black with blue accents for the console version. This retails for $79.99.

Finally, the Razer Basilisk Essential still focuses on the right-handed ergonomic design. The Basilisk Essential has a total of seven configurable buttons utilizing Razer’s Mechanical Mouse Switches, with a durability of up to 20 million clicks. The thumb-operated Multi-Function Paddle makes its return and can be used as a DPI Clutch to help slow down heavily intense moments in gaming. The Basilisk Essential also includes Chroma RGB integration as the gaming mouse retails for $49.99. All three peripherals are available on Razer’s website today.
