Razer has announced a new model of its popular Huntsman gaming keyboard. The Razer Huntsman Mini is the latest addition to the brand's extensive range of PC gaming accessories.
Keyboards in the Razer Huntsman family are known for what Razer describes as "industry-leading optical switches that outperform traditional mechanical switches in both speed and response times". The new model is an ultra-compact version with much of the same tech in a much smaller frame.

Razer Huntsman Mini specs
Developed in response to increasing demands from players, the Razer Huntsman Mini is said to be 60% smaller than its big brother. But that compactness doesn't come at the price of performance.
The Mini features a choice of two optical switches. Get the purple clicky version for the full mechanical effect, or the red linear version for the instantaneous feel. Both are industry-leading, using light to maximise response time. They're durable up to 100 million clicks, so they'll serve you well for many years to come.
Removed to make the keyboard as compact as possible are the function row, home cluster and numpad. Razer assures gamers that no functionality is lost though, stating: "Functions normally assigned to dedicated keys on a full-sized keyboard are still present as secondary functions, printed onto the side of the keycaps. Even more functions or macros can be assigned to any key via Razer Hypershift within Razer Synapse 3."
Razer Huntsman Mini features
Available in black and "mercury" (white) variants, the Huntsman Mini is equipped with Razer Chroma RGB lighting, so you can customise your experience and game the way you want. There are over 150 titles with Chroma integration, or you can use one of the five pre-installed lighting effects by using the function shortcuts.
The keyboard also features on-board memory to store up to five key binding profiles. The keys are all fully programmable, with on-the-fly macro recording functionality. Never let anything slow you down.
Razer Huntsman Mini price
According to Razer's official press release for the new keyboard, the clicky switch version of the Huntsman Mini will debut at £119.19 / $119.99 / €129.99 MSRP. The linear switch will be slightly more - $129.99 in the US and €139.99 in Europe. No word yet on if this one is coming to the UK.
Razer Huntsman Mini release date
The clicky switch version of the Huntsman Mini is available to purchase on the Razer website now. The linear switch model will follow in August 2020.
