Razer presents first keyboard mechanical switch

The famous gaming peripherals makes Razer has announced the release of the world’s first mechanical switch designed especially for gaming. The switch is called Razer Mechanical Switch, which is not the most original name we have seen but it will do.

The really new thing that the US company brings to the table is that the all new Razer Mechanical Switches have been designed from the ground up for gaming unlike traditional mechanical switches that have been created for typing. Razer’s new product boasts three things that have not been seen before – extremely high precision for the manufacturing technique, gold-plated contact points for extended lifespan of 60 million key strokes and optimized actuation distance that includes reduced distance between the actuation and reset points by almost half. There are two versions of the new switch – the Razer Green is tactile and clicky, requiring a force of 50 g to actuate, while the Razer Orange is tactile and silent requiring a force of 45 g to actuate.

The new Razer switches will be available on all new Razer BlackWidow keyboards and are open to other manufacturers who wish to make high-end gaming keyboards.
