Razer has 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.
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.
