The Razer Huntsman, which has since become one of the best-selling gaming consoles in the United States, is now a descendant. According to the manufacturer, the V2 upgrade offers features like second-generation Razer optical switches, 8K HyperPolling technology, and dual PBT keycaps. In addition, another silicone layer inside the keyboard should have a positive effect on background noise and thus reduce the volume of keystrokes. There is also talk of a nice layover.
Improved switches, robust keycaps, and elite style classics
Razer offers the Huntsman V2 with improved optical, clickable (purple) and linear (red) switches. For the latter, the manufacturer promises a “gentle, no-fuss version.” With a sampling rate of up to 8000Hz (HyperPolling), the whole thing should also be done with particularly low latency. The so-called DoubleShot casting process is used for the keycaps of the new gaming keyboard.
As is common with its predecessor, the Huntsman Elite, Razer also supplies the Huntsman V2 with a magnetic faux leather palm rest and additional media control buttons. As before, the gaming keyboard has a matte aluminum housing, Razer Chroma RGB lighting, and hybrid memory built in for a total of five gamer profiles. As an alternative to the full-size version with a numeric keypad, a “Tenkeyless” version without a number pad is available. Prices start at €199.99 and €169.99 at the Razer Store and at retailers like Amazon.
