Razer has been on a real tear lately, releasing new and updated gaming and productivity peripherals. Today, the company has unveiled wireless versions of three of its popular gaming peripherals: the BlackShark V2 Pro, DeathAdder V2 Pro, and BlackWidow V3 Pro. Combined, they allow gamers to free up wires on their desktop without sacrificing speed and accuracy that is often associated with wired peripherals.
“Every time we launch a new product, a lot of fans ask for a wireless version. By bringing the industry-leading Razer HyperSpeed Wireless technology to three of our most popular gaming peripherals, we are answering the community’s call for a completely cable-free setup – with no compromise on gameplay performance.”Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit
As a result of fans asking for wireless version, the company is bringing its HyperSpeed Wireless technology to these three devices. The technology uses optimized data protocols and an Adaptive Frequency Technology to increase transmission speeds and stability. Together, they deliver the lowest wireless latency of just 195μs, which is 25% faster than other wireless technologies.
