Gaming peripheral vendor Razer has released several new editions to its high performance range of keyboards, including a new mouse and new keyboards.

The Razer Ouroboros is an ambidextrous wireless gaming mouse, that has been designed to fit all types of gamer style. Named after the ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail, the Ouroboros has two interchangeable side panels, an adjustable back panel to change the length of the mouse, and an adjustable back tilt angle, which means it can fit easily to right and left-handed players, different hand sizes and also accommodate the three most common styles of gripping the mouse, the so-called claw, palm or hybrid styles.

The mouse has an enhanced sensor capable of up to 8200 dpi, and a dedicated, built-in dpi clutch trigger button ensures that players can achieve pinpoint precision when needed. The mouse has 4G Dual Sensor System, and gaming-grade, 1 ms wireless technology, and the option for wired connectivity if preferred.

“Designed for excellence and total ownage, the Razer Ouroboros was intended to be wielded by all serious gamers looking to win any FPS, RTS or RPG with custom-made dominance,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, president of Razer USA. “We are proud to introduce it as Razer’s first gaming mouse that features optimized, customizable, ambidextrous ergonomics that better fit the curvature of any and every hand size and personal grip style by delivering ultimate comfort, control, power and built-in intelligence to ascend to gaming immortality.”

In the keyboard range, Razer has updated its BlackWidow range, with an improved BlackWidow 2013 model and a new BlackWidow Tournament Edition.

The 2013 model features a mechanical keyboard for high grade responsiveness, with enhanced anti-ghosting to support up to 10 simultaneous key presses, with soft pronounced tap and distinctive tactile feedback, an anti-fingerprint matte black finish surface and backlight.

Razer has also introduced Razer Synapse 2.0 automatically synchronizes user profile settings to a cloud server, allowing for customization of the keyboard and other related Razer products with a single login.

The new addition to the range is the BlackWidow Tournament Edition which has been designed with a compact and light design, without a number pad, for portability or usage in smaller desktop spaces.

Along with the new models, Razer has also introduced Stealth models of the BlackWidow 2013, BlackWidow Ultimate and Black Widow Tournament, which feature brown mechanical switches for superior tactility and faster response that only requires an actuation force of 45 g and a reduced actuation of 2 mm.

“We are really excited to release this improved Razer BlackWidow series,” said Krakoff, president. “Gamers continue to get the most precise and superior mechanical key infrastructure ever designed in a keyboard, but the new and improved BlackWidow series comes with improved functionalities providing an unfair advantage you can literally feel.”

The Razer Ouroboros will be available in Q4 2012, and the BlackWidow models in August.
