RAZER LAUNCHES THE WORLD’S FASTEST KEYBOARD – HUNTSMAN V2


The leading lifestyle brand for gamers around the world, Razer announced the Razer Huntsman V2 range, with a host of upgrades and enhancements to create the quickest, most advanced optical gaming keyboards in the world. The new features include Razer’s second generation Optical Switches, Razer 8k HyperPolling Technology, and Doubleshot PBT keycaps, along with improved acoustics, made in consideration of player and community feedback.

Since its launch in 2018, the Huntsman range of keyboards has grown in notoriety and popularity to become the best-selling gaming keyboard in the U.S., setting higher standards for innovative, fast, gaming-grade keyboards. The new Huntsman V2 range is ready to continue that legacy with a range of upgrades and optimzations focused on the cornerstones of a great gaming keyboard:  feel, performance, and acoustics.

 

 

2ndGeneration Optical Switches

The Huntsman V2 comes with Razer second Generation Linear Optical Switches, which have been optimized and tuned based on player and user feedback. Foremost in these optimizations is the addition of a silicon sound dampener, to minimize the ‘clack’ of the key bottoming out during use, which exponentially elevates the typing experience. The switches also feature more generous lubrication on the switches and stabilizers, for even smoother operation and further noise reduction.

The Razer second Generation Linear Optical Switches leverage an infra-red beam of light to activate the switch signal, which completely terminates debounce delay, the delay usually built into mechanical switch keyboards to ensure a contact signal is a true keypress. With no debounce delay, Razer second Generation Linear Optical Switches can leverage the Razer HyperPolling Technology, surpassing the 1000Hz polling rate of regular keyboards and ramping up to a blistering true polling rate of 8000Hz. These two high-speed, high-performance technologies coupled together give the Huntsman V2 near-zero latency for the fastest, most responsive gaming keyboard in the world.

 

 

Upgrades, Upgrades, Upgrades

Keeping in mind feedback from the community and esports athletes, the Huntsman V2 has also been upgraded in other areas. Doubleshot PBT keycaps, for increased durability and resistance to wear, come factory fitted on the Huntsman V2. The two-stage molding process used in crafting the keycaps results in fadeproof legends, even after hundreds of hours of use, with a textured finish for a secure fingertip grip and positive typing action.

To improve keyboard acoustics, multiple sound dampening features have been added through the body, to absorb pings and thunks as the keys bottom out during use. A rugged matte aluminum top plate keeps the keyboard rigid with little to no flex, even under the most intense key pounding, and a sculpted, ergonomic wrist rest fits perfectly to the front of the Huntsman V2 for improved support and pressure relief during lengthy sessions.

The Huntsman V2 is armed with a Multi-function Digital Dial and 4 dedicated, customizable media keys for further usability outside of gaming. Fully programmable through Razer Synapse 3, the Huntsman V2 sports 7 preset Razer Chroma lighting effects, with a selection of up to 16.8 million colors, for total personalization. The hybrid on-board memory can be used to save settings, macros and color schemes for access anywhere, anytime, even with no access to cloud storage.

 

 

The Huntsman V2 Tenkeyless

Also announced today is the Huntsman V2 Tenkeyless keyboard, the slimmer, lighter version of the Huntsman V2. Mirroring many of the features of the full-sized Huntsman V2, the Huntsman V2 Tenkeyless eschews the number pad, dial, and media keys in order to become portable, but retains the new features and upgrades seen in the Huntsman V2 such as the new Razer Linear Optical Switches Gen-2, Razer HyperPolling Technology for true 8000Hz polling, Doubleshot PBT keycaps, sound dampening optimizations and ergonomic wrist rest. The Huntsman V2 Tenkeyless also comes with a detachable USB-C cable for ease of transport for players on the go and is fully compatible with Razer Synapse 3 for up to 16.8 million color customization and on-board hybrid memory for macro and settings storage.
