Co-development with Team World Elite

team. Known globally as one of the greatest Warcraft III players, Sky’s feedback
was invaluable in the creation of the Razer Aurantia for gamers in China.

“The Razer Aurantia gaming keyboard feels much better than traditional
keyboards; the keys are more flexible, key travel is better, and the keyboard is
highly suited to my requirements. The Razer Salmosa and Razer Aurantia bundle is
awesome for my needs and I’ve been training with them for the past couple of
months in preparation for my next tournament,” said XiaoFeng “Sky” Li.

Quote from Razer’s president
“After obtaining feedback from Chinese pro-gamers, we’ve created the Razer
Aurantia expressly for gamers in China. The Razer Aurantia is a light-weight
gaming keyboard, making it ultra-portable for gamers to bring their game
anywhere, and storing individual keyboard configurations for up to 10 games,”
said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president of Razer. He continued, “We’re
bundling the Razer Aurantia and the Razer Salmosa as they are what we judge
optimal companions, and we’d like gamers to try both out as a product suite.”
