Razer Huntsman

Razer claims that its Huntsman keyboard is the fastest in the world, and with optical switches, it may have a claim to that crown. By blending traditional mechanical switches with optical contacts, the Huntsman shaves precious milliseconds off of even fast mechanical keyboards with more typical gaming switches, making it perfectly suited for competitive gamers looking to get an edge. It also enjoys excellent RGB lighting, easily replaceable keycaps, and a strong, quality build.

Roccat Vulkan

The Roccat Vulcan 121 Aimo is a gaming keyboard that stands out from the crowd. Its Titan switches employ enhanced mechanical technology for a sturdier and more accurate gaming experience, but also broader illumination. The clear housings and shallow keycaps give you an even spread in and around each key for nuanced Aimo lighting effects. Media controls are clearly defined and usable with just one hand — no function key required — and each Vulkan comes complete with an attractive and comfortable wrist rest that’s entirely detachable for when it’s not needed.

Better yet, this keyboard is 25% off this Prime Day at just $120.

Asus TUF K7 Optical-Mechanical — $97, was $121

Asus TUF K7

Another optical-mechanical board vying for the fastest gaming keyboard around, the Asus TUF K7 is a supremely comfortable and sturdy keyboard with great lighting support. It also enjoys IP56 resistance to dust and water, making sure that even if you spill your drink on it, or don’t give it the regular cleaning it deserves, it’ll still continue to serve you well. Long after you’ve forgotten that you bought it at a great discount during Prime Day 2020.

Available now with a price tag of just $97, this is the cheapest this keyboard has been for some time. Snap it up while you can, as Prime Day ends in just a few short hours.

Asus just embarrassed everyone with its new gaming keyboard
The Asus ROG Strix Scope II 96 on a pink background.

I didn't expect much out of the Asus ROG Strix Scope II 96. The company impressed me earlier this year with the ROG Azoth, but the Strix Scope II 96 looked like a regression; a cheaper gaming keyboard designed for the mainstream, devoid of the enthusiast flair the company displayed with the Azoth. I'm happy I was wrong.

The Strix Scope II 96 can't rival building your own keyboard, nor the many premium options from brands like Keychron, but it raises the bar for what you should expect out of a mechanical gaming keyboard that costs $180. Not only does it come with modern features like hot-swappable switches and three connection modes, but it also sounds and feels great right out of the box. And that's coming from someone that winces at the sound of most mechanical gaming keyboards.

The Razer Edge floats in a digital computer backdrop.

Razer is getting into the gaming handheld market with a new portable device, dubbed the Razer Edge. Able to stream cloud games and play mobile games natively, the company calls it the "world's first dedicated 5G gaming device." It boasts an impressive screen and comes with an updated version of the Razer Kishi V2 controller.

Like the recently released Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld, the Razer Edge takes a stab at the growing cloud gaming market with a standalone portable device. Razer plans to release two separate versions of the handheld: a $400 Wi-Fi version set to launch in January and a first-of-its-kind 5G edition. The latter will be available exclusively through Verizon and does not have a price or release date yet.
