Razer Gives BlackWidow Mechanical Keyboard a Counter Logic Gaming Facelift

A BlackWidow like you've never seen one before

Razer has once again teamed up with Counter Logic Gaming (CGL) to release a custom version of an existing Razer peripheral. You may recall that late last year, Razer launched a limited edition CLG version of its DeathAdder mouse in the team's iconic black and white colors. This time, Razer and CGL took the BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth keyboard and gave it a makeover to match.

The new Counter Logic Gaming BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth keyboard sports a similar finish with the team's logo imprinted onto a two-tone black and white body, while the keys are individually illuminated in CLG's white coloring. As before, the keyboard utilizes Razer mechanical switches that were built from the ground up for gaming.

According to Razer , its team of engineers identified the optimal actuation distance for a gaming switch to a fraction of a millimeter and reduced the distance between the actuation point and resent point by almost half to allow for faster, more precise gaming commands compared to standard mechanical switches.

There are five dedicated macro keys that are fully programmable with on-the-fly macro recording, a gaming mode option, 10-key roll-over anti-ghosting, USB pass-through, 1000Hz Ultrapolling, and support for Razer Synapse.

The new plank is available now for $150 MSRP.
