Another new product release from Razer today, in the form of a natural successor to the Razer Nostromo, dubbed the Razer Tartarus (Keeping in line with the Spider naming scheme), it is aimed as a cheaper alternative to the Razer Orbweaver Elite Mechanical USB Gaming Keypad.To keep the price down, it follows more in the footsteps of the Nostromo, by utilising simpler and cheaper rubber dome keys rather than having individual mechanical keys, as well as lacking in some of the more ergonomic features.
The Tartarus features 25 Programmable buttons, with 15 of them on the face of the device, as well as having an eight way directional thumbpad. To increase the possibilities with the Tartarus you can also switch between 8 different key maps instantaneously. Whilst having support for Razers own back end software Synapse 2.0, the Tartarus' programmable keys support unlimited length macro binds, with the Synapse software making sure that wherever you go you will also have your personal set up saved and ready to go.
