Razer recently released a new licensed and team peripheral along with Razer’s longtime eSports partner and premier North American organization – the Counter Logic Gaming Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Mechanical gaming keyboard. The said CLG Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth features Razer’s orange silent mechanical switches with 45g of actuation force and the usual feature you see on a BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard. Check out the rest of its features, specifications, price and availability below.
Counter Logic Gaming Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition Features
The Counter Logic Gaming BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth gaming keyboard continues to give CLG players and fans a customized gaming setup. Late last year, Razer unveiled a limited edition CLG version of its best-selling DeathAdder mouse in the team’s iconic black and white colors. The new keyboard is wrapped in a familiar finish. The team’s logo is imprinted onto a unique two-tone black and white body and the keys are illuminated in CLG’s white coloring.
According to Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO: “CLG is one of the driving forces behind the explosive growth of professional gaming in North America and the world,” “The new CLG BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth keyboard features the only unobtrusive mechanical switch that was specifically designed for gaming.”
While traditional mechanical switches were originally designed for typing, the all-new Razer Mechanical Switches have been designed and engineered from the ground up for gaming. After extensive research, Razer’s multi-award winning engineers identified the optimal actuation distance for a gaming switch to a fraction of a millimeter and reduced the distance between the actuation and reset point by almost half to allow for faster, more precise gaming commands when compared to standard mechanical switches. Furthermore, the all-new Razer Mechanical Switches are made using an ultra-precise manufacturing technique that, along with gold plated contact points, result in a projected lifespan of up to 60 million key strokes.
These switches were tested extensively by the world’s most demanding eSports athletes from Team Razer, including CLG pros, who validated the new Razer Mechanical Switch in some of the most intense professional gaming tournaments.
According to George “HotshotGG” Georgallidis, CLG co-founder and President: “We’re really happy to be working with Razer, a company that pioneered the gaming peripheral category, on our custom-branded gear for our players and fans,” “We’re proud to extend our ongoing partnership that will result in giving our players and fans the best gaming gear on the planet.”
Razer made history with eSports legends since the early days of eSports and has been integral to the growth and development of the competitive electronic gaming generally. The brand’s work has leading the way in partnerships, business development and product evaluation in the gaming industry.
