Meet the Razer Huntsman - an all new type of mechanical keyboard

Razer have announced an all new mechanical keyboard, the Huntsman and it sports an all new type of mechanical keys, the Opto-Mechanical keys, which are faster by about 30%

The Razer Opto-Mechanical Switch offers faster performance without compromising tactility. It has the same actuate and reset points for rapid fire keypresses as found in a linear switch, and provides a similar tactile feel found in the best-selling Razer Green switches with a lighter actuation force of 45g. The lifespan of a Razer Opto-Mechanical Switch is rated up to 100 million keystrokes, doubling that of traditional mechanical switches. 

With the use of optical actuation technology and a metal key stabilizer bar fitted around each switch, there are fewer moving parts and no physical contact during actuation. This reduces switch degradation, making the Razer Huntsman a more consistent and durable keyboard that gamers may rely on for years.

“We have amassed years of experience developing and manufacturing our very own Razer™ Mechanical Switches designed specifically for gamers,” says Razer CEO and Co-Founder Min-Liang Tan. “This focused expertise has now expanded upon our brand’s legacy with the new Razer Opto-Mechanical Switch that delivers an all-new level of performance that is optimized for top-tier esports competition.”

There is no word on a release yet, but Razer usually only announce a few months ahead of a products release, so perhaps late 2018 or early 2019.

The keyboard is available now, as it turns out and is priced at $249.95 for the base model or $339.95 for the Elite model
