Mechanical switches have always been superior for speed and accuracy and before 2010, they were only used for typing, because they were made precisely for that purpose. Razer then made the radical decision to use mechanical switches for a gaming keyboard and that birthed the world’s very first gaming mechanical keyboard, the Razer BlackWidow.
Four years later, Razer redefined the limits of gaming performance by creating mechanical switches that were designed specifically to meet the demands of gaming - the Razer™ Mechanical Switch was born.
HOW A MECHANICAL SWITCH WORKS
When you press a key, the stem travels downwards, depressing the spring till the switch is activated and your action is actuated. Upon release, the spring bounces back to its original position, thus resetting the key.
Rigorously tested by Esports athletes under the most demanding conditions, Razer Mechanical Switches are perfectly tuned to the specific needs of gamers. Featuring optimized actuation points and a durability that surpasses the competition, these impressive switches enable you to execute your commands faster than before, for even longer.
Razer controls the entire manufacturing process of each switch, even the blueprint. This, in addition to the years of research and development, have resulted in a switch that surpasses the competition in durability, and features the tightest tolerance levels. Having control over the production gives Razer the opportunity to constantly innovate with new technologies, so you enjoy nothing but the very best.
Designed with optimized actuation and reset points, this Razer Mechanical Switch provides you with best in class gaming performance. Each blazing fast actuation is signalled by a distinctive click and resets itself to fire again at almost half the distance of standard mechanical switches, so you enjoy speed like never before.
