The Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma Keyboard is the latest addition to the colorful family of gaming peripherals manufacturer Razer.

Compared to its big brother, the Razer BlackWidow Chroma, the Tournament Edition focuses more on portability. It comes without the num-pad in a “sleek, compact form factor” and has a detachable USB cable.

Both factors guarantee that players who love to take part in LAN events or have shortage of space on their tables, will have no problems getting this keyboard in place.

Being in the Chroma family, the Tournament Edition will also feature the same 16.8 million customizable color options. “Users can define their own key zones, customize lighting effects, and add multiple effects layers on each zone for a personalized lighting display using Razer Synapse,” the company explained.

Additionally, the new edition will also feature the same green mechanical switches, which are similar to Cherry MX Blues with “optimized actuation” and a “distinct tactile feel” that is said to help players with having better reaction times.
