Razer has launched a new mechanical keyboard dubbed Huntsman V2 Analog and priced at $250. The new keyboard bears semblance with the previous models but has as its biggest distinguishing feature, adjustable actuation switches. That is the amount of movement required to register a press can be adjusted, allowing for near-endless customization through Razer’s Synapse software.
The actuation keys can be programmed with analog inputs to emulate a controller’s joysticks for smoother, variable levels of movement and control. Users will be able to program the keyboard so that pressing a key down slightly will make you walk slowly in-game, while pressing it fully will have you running at a normal clip just as can be done in an analog stick. This function will override the original use cases for the keys but you can revert or switch profiles to use the keys for what it is originally intended for.
Further, Razer’s keyboard allows gamers to program two distinct functions that would usually require two buttons onto one key, with one firing off at one actuation distance and the other when you fully press the key. For instance, you could equip a grenade with a soft press of a key, then throw it by pushing the key all the way down.
The Huntsman V2 Analog keys have a default 3.6mm travel, but you can adjust the distance to a much shorter 1.5mm or anywhere between those values. This won’t change the keys feel when you push them, but a shorter actuation will let you type a little softer without worrying that your keys won’t register a press.
In terms of the build, Razer’s Huntsman V2 Analog has an aluminum frame, a set of dedicated buttons to control media, and a dial for adjusting volume. The keycaps are Doubleshot PBT keycaps, which are said to wear better with age than standard keycaps. There is also a soft wrist rest that contains RGB lights and can be attached magnetically to the keyboard. It is no surprise that the keyboard also comes with Chroma RGB lights all around it.
The Huntsman V2 Analog is now available exclusively at Razer.com through February 9th, when it’ll launch at more retailers.
