PC gaming hardware manufacturer Razer has made available it's latest piece of gaming peripherals with the release of its Tartarus keypad.

Successor to the company's Nostromo, the Razer Tartarus features an ergonomic physical profile and 25 programmable keys.  That includes an eight-way directional thumb pad which allows gamers to move with more precision.  It also acts as modifier keys, multiplying the keyset count by eight, providing 128 different command options.

Furthermore, the Tartarus provides users with unlimited macro lengths and unlimited game profiles complete with instantaneous switching between eight key maps.  The device also features full anti-ghosting with backlit keys. 

"The Razer Tartarus places an infinite amount of control into a single hand-literally-affording immense flexibility, power and an ultimately free other hand, which is a deadly competitive advantage," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director.  "For serious gamers, this keypad can make the difference between victory and defeat." 

The new Razer gaming device is enabled to be configured with Razer Synapse 2.0, the proprietary software that functions as the brain of the keypad. Razer Synapse 2.0 allows users of Razer products to save custom profiles and sync them via the cloud.
