Razer introduces its Cynosa gaming keyboards. These are more budget-oriented keyboards without mechanical switches, they feature soft cushioned "gaming-grade" keys and offer individually customizable 16.8 million color backlit keys. Razer designed the keyboard to be spill-resistant and offers fully programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording.
The Cynosa Chroma is available via the Razer store for $59.99 (69.99EUR). The company also offers the Cynosa Chroma Pro for $79.99 (89.99EUR), the difference between the two versions is that the Pro edition has Razer Chroma Underglow with 24 customization zones.
Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced two new additions to the Razer Cynosa Chroma line, a feature-packed but value-priced family of gaming keyboards complete with the personalization and immersion factors that gamers need.
Each Cynosa Chroma keyboard sports soft-cushioned keys for a comfortable and responsive touch experience and a spill-resistant design for durability. It also features individually-backlit RGB keys for a colorfully immersive gaming experience driven by Razer Chroma™ technology.
For those who want a step up in aesthetics, the Cynosa Chroma Pro keyboard features 24 customizable lighting zones underneath the base of the keyboard. This “underglow” lighting effect is the first for a Razer keyboard and provides an added dimension of visual feedback and game integration.
“Razer Chroma is a crucial technology for creating the most immersive gaming experience possible,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “With the Razer Cynosa and Cynosa Pro keyboards, more gamers will have access to this experience. Cynosa is the most full-featured entry-level keyboard for gamers today.”
Unlike other value keyboards, each key on the Cynosa Chroma and Cynosa Chroma Pro is customizable and individually backlit with 16.8 million color options. Officially integrated lighting profiles that change dynamically during gameplay can be activated upon installation for “Overwatch™,” “Quake Champions™,” “Diablo™” and other popular games.
The Razer Cynosa Chroma and Cynosa Chroma Pro are the first Razer keyboards interfacing with Razer Synapse 3 (Beta) software. Synapse allows users to choose lighting and performance parameters, including their own macros and key binds, and it can be accessed from any computer. The newest version of the cloud-based configurator allows more customization than ever before, with new lighting effects, settings and more.
