Razer Mechanical Switches Coming Soon to Third-Party Keyboard Makers

Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced that its multi-award winning Razer Mechanical Switches will be coming to third-party keyboard makers later this year. Created from the ground up for gaming, Razer Mechanical Switches are renowned for their speed and accuracy. They are designed to last 60 percent longer than standard mechanical switches and are today trusted by millions of gamers and esports athletes worldwide. Previously available exclusively on the best-selling Razer BlackWidow series of keyboards, the switches will make their debut later this year on keyboards manufactured by select partners. More partners are expected to join the program by the end of the year.

"Many keyboards on the market today claim to be made for gamers, but all of them use switches design for anything but gaming," said Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. "Our switches, on the other hand, are designed specifically for gaming. We're pumped that more partners are validating the advantage they offer and look forward to extending these benefits to even more gamers."
All three varieties of the Razer Mechanical Switches will be offered to third-party keyboard makers:
  • Razer Green Switch: features a tactile bump and distinctive click sound along with optimized actuation and reset points for best in class gaming and typing performance.
  • Razer Orange Switch: features a tactile bump and feedback without the audible click. Offers the same optimized performance with less actuation force as a Razer Green Switch, while maintaining a quiet gaming experience.
  • Razer Yellow Switch: features an ultra-fast actuation of only 1.2mm and quiet performance for rapid-fire keypresses and lightning-paced gaming.
  • DIY and homebrew keyboard enthusiasts can also look forward to standalone sales of Razer Mechanical Switches later this year.

Wow, what a shill piece. how much did Razer pay you to talk so highly about their switches? In mx style switch market, Razer are near the bottom of the heap. each time they revise their switches, they choose and even lower quality and cheaper manufacturer than the last. Razer switches are an absolute joke, not to even mention how poorly designed and constructed their hardware is, or how bloated and broken their Synapse software is.

My Razer keyboard has their green switches. I've found no issue with the keyboard over the time I've had it, I quite like it and the feel of the keystrokes.

While I agree about Razer, your comment's aimed at the wrong person ;)

That's why we use these press release topics to shit all over them. At least I do, most of the time. For some perspective.
