Hot on the heels of the announcement of the Hunstman Mini, leading gaming tech brand Razer has unveiled another new keyboard. The Razer Cynosa V2, as the name suggests, is an updated version of the popular Cynosa Chroma, a membrane gaming keyboard which retails for around £50.

Announcing the keyboard to the press, Razer stated: "Unlike most other entry-level gaming keyboards that feature limited zone lighting, the Cynosa V2 features advanced per key lighting powered by Razer Chroma RGB. It also syncs with an ever-growing library of Chroma-integrated lighting effects for popular games."

The new Cynosa V2 keyboard is built on much the same tech as the original model. It features quite cushioned keystrokes, a durable spill-resistant design, cable routing options and fully programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording capability.

The main selling point of the Razer Cynosa V2 is the per-key RGB lighting powered by Razer Chroma. Program it via Razer Synapse and choose from a range of immersive lighting effects. Plus, there are over 150 games with Chroma-integrated lighting effects, including Fortnite and Apex Legends.
