Razer Mechanical Switches for Gaming Keyboards - Clicky & Silent Keys
Razer™ Mechanical Switches:
Worlds first Mechanical Switch
designed for Gaming

Regardless of your choice of game, every gamer savors the sweet satisfaction of winning. But the path to victory is more than just number crunching or bulletproof strategies, it is scrutinizing how you can optimize every advantage you have.

It is this very approach which resulted in Razer making the radical decision to use mechanical switches for gaming keyboards – giving birth to the world’s first gaming mechanical keyboard in 2010, the Razer BlackWidow.

Since then, there’s no mistaking that the mechanical keyboard has become one of the most popular weapons in the arsenal of gamers worldwide.

Almost four years later, the daring, out-of-the-box approach that has brought you the Razer BlackWidow, is now redefining the limits of gaming performance once again.

The Razer BlackWidow Ultimate was first launched in 2010. Now equipped with the all new Razer™ Mechanical Switches, it continues to raise the bar for mechanical gaming keyboards all over the world.

The Razer Green Switch gives you a distinct tactile bump and satisfying click with every keystroke.

Introducing the all-new Razer™ Mechanical Switches - designed from the ground up specifically for gaming, to give you performance that is even closer to perfection.

The all-new Razer Mechanical Switches have an optimized set of actuation points that improve your gaming performance by giving you speed and responsiveness like never before. Requiring a force of only 50g to actuate, these new switches reset at almost half the distance of traditional mechanical switches, so you can double-tap effortlessly with blazing speed. While conventional mechanical switches are great for typing, the Razer Mechanical Switches are engineered to enhance both your gaming and typing experience.

Knowing the intense gaming sessions each keyboard goes through, Razer engineers completely overhauled the manufacturing process to bring a new ultra-precise standard to the production floor. The result is close to zero tolerance and an increase in durability of each switch to up to 60 million keystrokes as compared to 50 million on standard mechanical switches so you can count on perfectly executed commands, every time.

While the Razer designers and engineers designed the new Razer Mechanical Switch from ground up, we partnered with a third party manufacturer to mass produce the switch. However, to ensure that each switch meets the demanding specifications, our own quality assurance experts are based on the production floor to ensure each switch meticulously follows the design blueprint and specifications defined by Razer.

Made to withstand rigorous physical demands, Razer Mechanical Switches have been tested by professional eSports athletes, ensuring excellent performance that you can depend on.

Having used the BlackWidow as my default keyboard for all these years, and watching it evolve is truly amazing. Razer takes what is already the best and makes it even better. The new switches feel great and give me total control of each keystroke. This is unlike anything that I have experienced before.”

The Razer Mechanical Switch comes in two types – The Razer Green Switch that is tactile and clicky, requiring a force of 50g to actuate; and the Razer Orange Switch that is tactile yet silent, requiring a force of 45g to actuate.

We believe that in order to bring the unfair advantage to gamers worldwide, we need an open source environment by allowing other gaming peripheral makers to share this innovation with us. The Razer Mechanical Switch is available to anybody looking to manufacture the highest quality gaming-grade mechanical keyboards.

The all new Razer™ Mechanical Switches – the latest benchmark in the world of competitive gaming.

Razer Green Switch
Clicky keys with optimized tactile feel
  • Ultra durable – up to 60 million key strokes
  • Optimized actuation and reset points
  • Precision manufacturing process for tighter tolerance
 

The Razer Mechanical switch is designed to actuate at an optimal distance of 1.9mm into the keystroke, and reset itself to fire again at less than half the distance of standard mechanical switches. This allows for blazing fast actuations without having the need to bottom down into the keystroke each time.
