Razer has just released the BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed keyboard, a 65% format gaming keyboard in a wireless format.

Designed for gamers who want a minimalist keyboard that also reduces clutter on the desktop, the V3 edition of the Mini features full-height keys and arrow navigation keysets as well. The new aluminium-construction Black Widow features Razer’s own switch technologies – silent linear yellow or clicky tactile green. They’re rated for 80 million keystrokes and capped with doubleshot ABS keycaps for fade-resistant legends.

It owes its speedy wireless capabilities (1,000Hz ultrapolling) to a new HyperSpeed Multi-Device Dongle, which works with other compatible Razer HyperSpeed mice and connects both to your PC via a single dongle. Alternatively, you can connect the keyboard via Bluetooth, and that allows you to switch between (up to) three paired devices.

Charging is done via USB-C and allows you to use the keyboard at the same time. Each charge is rated for up to 200 hours of use.

And as a piece of Razer gear, it has all the requisite Razer features: Razer Chroma RGB lighting for each key, Hybrid On-Board Memory and Cloud Storage for up to five profiles, Synapse 3 configuration tool, programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording and a gaming mode option.

The BlackWidow V3 Mini HyperSpeed is available from $279.90 at select retailers and etailers and $309.90 at .
