Various gaming keyboards have become quite popular and have been filling news posts more than ever. Now Razer has decided to kick things up an notch with its new Deathstalker Ultimate keyboard with LCD trackpad and its Switchblade UI, the same one found on Razer's Blade gaming notebook.
Razer went an extra mile to claim the world's smartest gaming keyboard thanks to integrated LCD trackpad and 10 dynamic display keys placed above the LCD trackpad. As it was the case with Razer's Blade gaming notebook, the LCD panel on the new Deathstalker Ultimate keyboard can operate in two modes, as a display that shows "critical in-game information" or run external applications like Youtube, social sites, web sites, or as a highly sensitive multi-touch trackpad with built-in gestures, according to Razer.
Spec wise, the new Deathstalker has a 4.05-inch touch screen that doubles as a trackpad with gesture support, 10 dynamic display keys with 80Hz response time placed above the screen, chiclet style keys, tri-color backlit keys, 1000Hz ultrapolling, fully programmable keys with on the fly macro recording, anti-ghosting capability for up to 10 simultaneous key presses, braided fiber cable and fixed wrist rest.
The new Deathstalker Ultimate looks like a great little toy and an impressive gaming keyboard but with a US $249.99 / EU €249.99 price tag it is simply an overpriced rather than an impressive little toy. The new Deathstalker Ultimate is scheduled to ship in September.
