Razer presents value-oriented Cynosa Chroma RGB gaming keyboards
Razer is expanding the RGB gaming keyboard lineup with two affordable models: the Cynosa Chroma and the Cynosa Chroma Pro, which is the first Razer model to include underglow lighting with 24 customizable zones. These are not mechanical keyboards, but Razer did integrate special soft-cushioned gaming-grade keys that are superior to regular rubber dome ones. All 104 keys are programmable through the proprietary Razer Synapse software, and users can record macro setups on-the-fly.
The backlight effects can also be programmed for each key, choosing from 16.8 million colors. Users can either choose preloaded color effects, or program unique patterns that change dynamically depending on the played game. Exclusive to the Razer Cynosa Pro model are the 24 programmable underglow zones that light up the desk on the left, right and front of the keyboard. To compensate for the lack of mechanical keys, Razer also upped the polling rate to 1,000 Hz. Both models feature the 10 key roll-over anti-ghosting technology and are spill-resistant.
The Cynosa Chroma is available for US$59.99, while the Pro version costs US$79.99. The two models can be ordered straight from Razer’s official site.
