The Cynosa Chroma and Cynosa Chroma Pro come with soft-cushioned gaming-grade keys that feature 1,000 Hz ultrapolling rates. Light and commands can be programmed for each of the 104 keys through the Razer Synapse software. The Pro version is the first Razer keyboard to include 24 underglow programmable zones.

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.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
