Razer makes Arctosa, Lycosa Mirror keyboards official

Razer Arctosa and Lycosa

Razer today officially released a pair of keyboards aimed at its characteristic gaming crowd. The Arctosa is its first real budget gaming keyboard and is shaped similar to the Lycosa but sheds the backlighting, USB, and audio output jacks that lift the price of the earlier input hardware. It continues to use the short-travel keys and macro programming features and claims to wipe out the "ghosting" effect that hinders movement when using the WASD key layout in many first-person shooter titles. Razer ships the Arctosa in November for $50 with either silver or black lettering on its black keys.

The launch of the new keyboard has also given Razer the chance to launch the Lycosa Mirror. The special-edition keyboard keeps the backlighting and connectors of the reference version but drops the rubberized finish of the stock model for a glossy-black surface that earns the model its name. Choosing this model doesn't affect the $80 price and will be an option for gamers as of December.
