Razer unveils the Razer Huntsman Mini 60% optical gaming keyboard! The ultra-compact form factor keyboard is the newest addition to the Huntsman family lineup, known for its industry-leading optical switches that outperform traditional mechanical switches in both speed and response times. The Razer Huntsman Mini will be available in Black and Mercury White finishes as well as in both the clicky purple, and newly improved linear red optical switch variations.
With a growing demand from gamers – including professional Fortnite gamers such as Ceice and Cloakzy – for compact, high-performance gaming keyboards, the Huntsman Mini is about 60% the size of a full-sized keyboard, while still retaining all the essential keys for gaming. Functions normally assigned to dedicated keys on a full-sized keyboard are still present as secondary functions, printed onto the side of the keycaps. Even more functions or macros can be assigned to any key via Razer Hypershift within Razer Synapse 3. This minimalist design clears the clutter from the desk and allows for more gaming room with large mouse swipes or for a larger sleeping area for that furry friend.
Razer has listened to feedback from the community in order to develop the Huntsman Mini.
“We have many years of experience in creating and innovating keyboards and switches designed for gamers. That is complemented through the support and feedback from our community. The Huntsman Mini packs the latest and greatest in keyboard technology in an ultra-compact 60% form factor.”
Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit.
Less than a year since the linear switches released on the Huntsman Tournament Edition, an improved Razer Linear Optical Switch appears for the first time on the Huntsman Mini, featuring sound dampeners that significantly reduce noise for quieter acoustics without sacrificing any speed or smoothness.
Doubleshot PBT keycaps, introduced with the Huntsman Tournament Edition last September, are more durable than regular ABS keycaps on standard keyboards and resist the oily shine from extended use. Razer has also made the investment to produce quality PBT Keycaps in regional layouts later in the year, including Japanese, Nordic, UK, German, French, Russian, and Spanish.
The Huntsman Mini also has a standard bottom row compatible with most standard keycap sets for customization fans with a standard USB-C connection port interchangeable with a user’s favourite coloured cable.
Despite its size, the keyboard can still pack a punch in games, with the best-performing optical switches that instantly actuate at the speed of light, outperforming and outlasting traditional mechanical switches found on most other gaming keyboards. Razer Chroma RGB lighting effects are customizable thorugh Razer Synapse 3, or extra onboard preset lighting profiles even without external software.
