Razer announces Ornata keyboard with world's first mecha-membrane keyboard

04 September 2016

Razer has announced a new keyboard that introduces a new kind of switch that Razer calls mecha-membrane, a combination of mechanical and membrane key-switches.

According to Razer, this switch combines the best of both worlds; you get the soft, cushioned feel of a membrane keyboard with the crisp tactile feedback of a mechanical switch. Razer is also using mid-height keycaps for faster typing experience.

Other than that the Ornata, which is what the keyboard is called, also includes an ergonomic wrist rest, optional Razer Chroma RGB backlighting, 10-key rollover with anti-ghosting for 10 keys, and a dedicated gaming mode.

The Ornate Chroma is priced at $99.99 and the Ornate at $79.99.
