With the debut of Razer’s new linear yellow keyboard switches, one of the gaming-est keyboards going gets a lot gamier. It’s a board for playing, not so much for typing.
If you’re into keyboard switches, you’ll appreciate news that the latest version of Razer’s BlackWidow gaming keyboard adds a third option—the silent, low-travel Razer Yellow switch. Me, I’m just excited about the magnetic wrist rest.
Last week Razer debuted Project Valerie, a cutting-edge laptop concept that switches automatically between one and three displays. On Sunday, two prototype models were stolen from the Razer booth at CES 2017. The company is offering $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
It’s too bad Razer already used the name Switchblade for its CES 2011 micro laptop concept, as it’s would have been perfect for Project Valerie, a gaming laptop that expands from one to three displays with the press of a button.
On Christmas evening, after the rest of our extended family had fled to their respective homes, I hooked up my Oculus Rift to the new Razer Blade Pro, pushed aside the plants and cat food bowl on the keeping room table and introduced my 70-year-old mother to virtual reality. It went quite well.
Some prefer the reassuring clickety-clack of a noisy mechanical keyboard. Others crave the quiet spring of membrane keys. Razer’s Ornata keyboard combines the two into something called Mecha-Membrane, and it really is the best of both worlds.
Razer’s ultra-thin line of Blade gaming laptops has traditionally been about balancing power with portability. Housing a Geforce GTX 1080 without adding anything to its .88 inch thickness, next month’s new Razer Blade Pro aims to be the best of both worlds.
Coming in July from the Open Source Virtual Reality Consortium, the Hacker Development Kit 2 virtual reality headset matches the stats of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive for only $399.
Eschewing the unpopular and largely non-existent practice of releasing new versions of products that are worse than the previous ones, the latest version of Razer’s wafer-thin gaming laptop is better than the ones that came before it. Good call.
When my review unit of Razer’s newly-launched Ripsaw game capture box arrived I eagerly unboxed it, set it atop the AverMedia Live Gamer Extreme I’d been using since last summer, and swapped the cords from the old one into the exact same ports in the new one. Hmm.
Revealed a couple months back at CES 2016, Razer’s Core is a plug and play way to add an external graphics card to the company’s line of skinny notebooks. Now it has a $499 price tag, and April release date and both major GPU makers’ blessing.
Announced today using the same Fallout 4 screenshot they used while announcing the Razer Blade Stealth ultrabook earlier this year, the new 14-inch Razer Blade ultra-skinny gaming notebook is packing a lot more power than its predecessor at a slightly better price.
Razer’s third-generation Xbox controller, the Wildcat is positioned as an alternative to Microsoft’s Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller. It is indeed a different way to pay $150 to control Xbox One and PC games, just not necessarily a better one.
Gaming peripheral and system maker Razer shows up at CES 2016 this week its smallest, cheapest Razer Blade laptop yet. The Razer Blade Stealth is Ultrabook sized, but with the optional Razer Core it can deliver desktop-level performance.
Looking to further capture the hearts of the streaming community, Razer introduces the Stargazer, a webcam with motion and gesture tracking, 3D facial and object scanning, dynamic background removal and it’s pretty much a Kinect.
Razer’s been working on the whole “revolutionize gaming devices” thing for many years now, but lacked the reach of the big names in PC hardware. Teaming up with multi-national computer technology company Lenovo should do the trick.
I’ve got two Razer keyboards to choose from. One is silent and sleek with chicklet-style membrane keys. The other’s mechanical switches click loud and proud. Which is best? I need a little help there. Update: The poll results are in!
How epic can a trailer for a gaming mouse get? This epic.
