Razer has released the Razer Tartarus, a membrane gaming keypad created with ergonomic comfort and customization options in mind, according to Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder. It's compatible with PCs and Macs running Mac OS X 10.6 and higher.
The successor to the Razer Nostromo, the Razer features 25 programmable keys including an eight-way directional thumb pad. The thumb pad is designed to allow gamers to move with more precision, while also acting as modifier keys, multiplying the keyset count by eight, providing 128 different command options.
With unlimited macro lengths and unlimited game profiles, the Razer Tartarus also provides users instantaneous switching between eight key maps, according ot Nostromo. The Razer Tartarus features full anti-ghosting, with backlit keys that give users total control in dark conditions.
The Razer Tartarus is enabled to be configured with Razer Synapse 2.0, the proprietary software that functions as the brain of the keypad. Razer Synapse 2.0 allows users of Razer products to save custom profiles and sync them from anywhere in the world through the cloud system to be accessed from any computer anytime, anywhere.
The Razer Tartarus costs US$79.99. For more info go to www.razerzone.com/tartarus .
