The new Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 mechanical gaming keyboard line gets new switch option, magnetic wrist rest, and cosmetic updates.

The new switch’s feel and properties are meant for FPS and MOBA players who press certain keys thousands of times over the course of a match session. The Razer Yellow switch is also rated to 80 million keystrokes ensuring durability and longevity. The Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 now includes a magnetic wrist rest which optionally attaches to the bottom of keyboard and helps keep gamers comfortable during marathon gaming sessions.
