IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the launch of the Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition (TE) Chroma V2, the gaming keyboard of choice for esports players.
The Razer BlackWidow TE Chroma V2 is the compact mechanical gaming keyboard built for competitive gamers looking for rapid reaction speeds.

Designed without a tactile bump or click, the Razer Yellow switches are silent and rapid to meet the demands of fast-paced first person shooter (FPS) and online multiplayer battle arena (MOBA) type games. With an unmatched response rate, Razer Yellow switches offer a 1.2mm actuation point, is 40 percent faster than standard mechanical key switches, and has been tested under the most intense gaming sessions to ensure a lifespan of up to 80 million keystrokes.
“Gamers rely on their gear to react and respond as fast as they do no matter the situation, from landing a headshot to combining ultimate abilities as a team,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, and CEO. “Timing is critical. The BlackWidow TE Chroma V2’s Instant Trigger Technology works hand-in-hand with our Yellow switches, setting the bar for the industry’s fastest response rating on a keyboard with the ultimate combination of hardware and software.”
