Razer Changes Mechanical Keyboard Landscape

Razer announced today their Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical Switch, a first in the world of mechanical keyboards. The switches boast of feeling like a full-size mechanical keyboard, despite their tiny form factor. The keys have a true actuation and reset point and require 70 grams of force to push down which is near a Cherry MX Black switch.

The exclusive switch will make it’s debut in Razer’s Mechanical Keyboard Case for the Apple® iPad Pro, showcasing just how small these keys really are.

Razer’s CEO Min-Liang Tan had this to say on the new switch:

We’re commonly thought of as a company that makes phenomenal products for gamers, but to design the very best products, we’ve had to innovate from the ground up – even from each individual component such as mechanical switches. We’re excited about the potential of our Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical Switch and look forward to exploring other applications in addition to the mechanical keyboard we’ve designed for the iPad Pro.

The iPad Pro case from Razer is available now in the Razer Store for $169.99.
