The Razer Huntsman keyboard uses a new breed of optomechanical key switches. These have an ultra-low 1.5mm actuation point for up to 30% speed increase over full mechanical key switches.
The hybrid design uses the familiar Razer Green switch to provide the clicky bump favoured by gamers. it adds an infrared light switch instead of a mechanical one. The result is a 45g actuation at 1.5mm (full throw is still 4mm) giving a light and clicky feel.
The Razer Huntsman Elite features a programmable digital dial for quick access to functions. It has personalize settings with hybrid onboard memory and cloud storage. An ergonomic leatherette wrist rest completes the premium Elite model. An underglow emanates around all sides of the keyboard and the wrist rest.
Gamers can choose from 16.8 million colours and a variety of lighting effects. Customised settings can be created using the Razer Synapse 3 software platform and shared with millions of other Razer software users via the Razer Chroma Workshop.
In-game Razer Chroma lighting profiles also integrate into popular game titles, including “Fortnite,” “Overwatch,” “Warframe” and more. These profiles can display tutorials, dynamic effects that react to gameplay and more.
