Razer – Huntsman Tournament Edition Announced

Razer’s tournament keyboard with Linear Optical Switches offers instant responsiveness.

The Huntsman TE joins the Huntsman premium keyboard series featuring Razer’s ultra-fast light-activated Optical Switches. Pioneered by Razer the new Linear Optical Switches utilize light to instantly capture key actuations. An infra-red light beam is used to detect when a key is pressed, allowing for much greater precision and actuation speed versus traditional mechanical key switches.

Standardized size keys in bottom row of the Huntsman TE have been used for easy keycap customization. Razer Chroma is also in play, the highly popular RGB lighting system, allowing users to personalize their keyboard lighting effects. Also support for synchronizing lighting effects with over 500 devices that support Razer Chroma.
