Razer outs the BlackWidow X gaming keyboards

The US maker of high-end gaming peripherals Razer has announced the release of the new BlackWidow X gaming keyboard, which will now serve as a simpler version of the BlackWidow gaming keyboard. Even then the new BlackWidow X keeps the most important features of the BlackWidow.

To keep costs down the BlackWidow X comes with a simpler chassis, though. The keyboard is not as protected as the BlackWidow and in addition to this only certain versions of the BlackWidow X come with Razer Synapse technology. The BlackWidow X keyboards also feature Razer switches that should be good for up to 80 million presses.

“The Razer BlackWidow X builds on our massive success with gaming keyboards and broadens the choice of keyboard design for gamers,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “By removing the protective top cover and exposing the inner metal top chassis of the current BlackWidow, I’m pleased that we’re able to establish a new low price point for a premium, metal-chassis, mechanical keyboard with the new BlackWidow X.”

There are three models in the line as of now – the Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition X Chroma, the Razer BlackWidow X Ultimate and the Razer BlackWidow X Tournament Edition. The first model comes with Razer mechanical switches with 50g actuation force, a 80 million keystroke lifespan, Chroma customizable backlighting with 16.8 million color options, individually backlit keys, a compact layout, a military-grade metal top construction, support for Razer Synapse, 10-key roll-over anti-ghosting, fully programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording, cable management routing, gaming mode options, 1000 Hz ultrapolling and a braided fiber cable.

The Razer BlackWidow X Ultimate sports Razer mechanical switches with 50g actuation force, a 80 million keystroke lifespan, individually backlit keys with dynamic lighting effects, a military-grade metal top construction, support for Razer Synapse, 10-key roll-over anti-ghosting, fully programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording, cable management routing, gaming mode options, 1000 Hz ultrapolling and a braided fiber cable.

The last model in the line, which happens to be the Razer BlackWidow X Tournament Edition, features Razer mechanical switches with 50g actuation force, a 80 million keystroke lifespan, a compact layout, a military-grade metal top construction, support for Razer Synapse, 10-key roll-over anti-ghosting, fully programmable keys with on-the-fly recording, cable management routing, gaming mode options, USB pass-through, 1000 Hz ultrapolling and a braided fiber cable.

The Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition X Chroma will be available in April 2016 for USD 129.99/EUR 149.99, while the Razer BlackWidow X Ultimate and the Razer BlackWidow X Tournament Edition are available now for USD 99.99/EUR 119.99 and USD 69.99/EUR 79.99, respectively.
