Razer announced a new gaming keyboard today, one that uses key switches that emulate the analog movement of a controller’s sticks and triggers. The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog gaming keyboard was designed to work like a controller in that sense, and Razer told GameSpot that any game that uses analog movement or functions will be compatible with the Huntsman V2 Analog’s key switches. The Huntsman V2 Analog is going for $250 through Razer right now, though we expect it to come to other retailers in the near future.
In addition to analog key switches, the Huntsman V2 Analog boasts Razer’s Chroma RGB lighting, borderless magnetic wrist rest, and a braided cable with USB-C connection. For those who don’t have a USB-C-equipped PC, it also comes with a USB-A adapter. Other features include programmable keys, macro recording, USB 3.0 passthrough, and much more.
