Razer Launches Miniaturized DeathAdder V2 Gaming Mouse

Razer has worked on a variant of its famous and well-respected DeathAdder V2 gaming mouse. The aptly-named DeathAdder V2 Mini essentially takes (almost) all features from the original DeathAdder V2 revision and just shrinks it down to a smaller footprint for people with smaller hands than the norm. Dimensions for the Mini version stand at 4.5" (L) (11.43 cm) x 2.2" (W) (5.58 cm) x 1.5" (H) (3.81 cm) compared to the original's 5" (L) (12.7 cm) x 2.43" (W) (6.17 cm) x 1.68" (H) (4.26 cm) for the original DeathAdder V2. The Mini thus underwent a diet of sorts, coming in 20 grams lighter than its predecessor at just 62 grams.

Razer Announces Tartarus Pro Keypad with Analog Optical Switches

Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the Razer Tartarus Pro. The newest member of Razer's renowned Tartarus keypad family is the first keypad fitted with analog optical switches designed to provide gamers with superior control in games. The Tartarus Pro is equipped with Razer Analog Optical Switches, enabling the keypad to measure how deep each key is pressed. This allows the Tartarus Pro to emulate analog input similar to controller thumbsticks. Additionally, gamers can adjust the actuation point between 1.5 mm for a faster keystroke, or up to 3.6 mm for a deeper, and more deliberate press.

At the heart of the Razer Analog Optical Switches, an infrared light beam passes through switch stem, while a sensor measures the depth of the switch based on how much light passes through. As such, the switches can register scaling levels of input in the same keystroke. This lets advanced users take advantage of dual-function keys to bind two functions to each key - one that triggers on a partial keystroke, and another on a full keystroke. With dual-function keys, the Razer Tartarus Pro can help ease complex key presses and level up the gaming experience by adapting to the user's playstyle and requirement.
