Gaming peripheral specialist Razer announced new keyboards with mechanical keys which makes less noise when typing than normal mechanical keyboards.

Surprisingly Razer didn't call the new Razer BlackWidow Stealth Edition the word's first true gaming keyboard in line with the usual hyperbole from the US-based manufacturer.

Possiby because the new keyboards are 'stealth' upgrades of the firm's previous BlackWidow keyboards. The higher end Ultimate version features 'extreme anti-ghosting' which allows for up to six key presses at the same time

"Where the first Razer BlackWidow can be likened to a barbarian ploughing through enemies with ease, the Stealth Edition of this mechanical keyboard is the ninja who sneaks up on opponents unexpectedly to take them down in a quick blur," said Razer boss Robert Krakoff.

The Razer BlackWidow Stealth will go on sale for $79.99 or €79.99 while the Ultimate version USD $139.99 / €139.99.
