If you're an old school gamer, then you probably remember Razer's original Diamondback mouse. Released in late 2004 at the World Cyber Games, it was one of Razer's earliest products, with only the Boomslang (multiple versions) and Viper predating it. If you were a fan of the Diamondback, you'll be happy to know that Razer is bringing it back. This isn't the same Diamondback from a decade ago. It's been updated for the modern gamer, which means colorful LED lighting, something that peripheral makers seem to think is a necessity these days. In this case, the cutomizable Chroma lighting loops around... Read more...
Gaming peripheral maker Razer is once again teaming up with NZXT to pimp out one of its computer cases. This time the recipient of Razer's "predatory design" makeover is the S340, a compact mid-tower chassis with 90 percent steel construction for durability and a budget-friendly price tag.This is the second product to come from the "Designed by Razer" licensing program, the other being the H440, a mid-tower enclosure also belonging to NZXT. Other case manufacturers are welcome to join Razer's licensing party, though only NZXT has done so up to this point.Through this collaboration, the S340 gains... Read more...
Razer today confirmed reports that it has acquired OUYA's software assets, including its content catalog and online retail platform. As part of the deal, OUYA's technical team and developer relations staff will join the software team at Razer and begin working on a long-term plan for its Android TV efforts, including Android-based consoles. The acquisition is a play for software and personnel only -- Razer did not buy OUYA's hardware or other related assets. However, the company does plan to publish Android TV content and Android-based TV console games under the OUYA brand as a separate interest.... Read more...
Just when you thought the whole Android micro-console craze might have run its course, here comes Razer ready to shake up the category with its Forge TV, winner of eight awards in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, including a pair of "Best of CES" awards. Needless to say, the hype is high for this pint-sized gadget, but should you pre-order one? You'll have to decide that for yourself, and while you mull it over, here's what you need to know. Forge TV is a NUC-sized device that measures 105mm by 105mm by 17mm (4.1 inches by 4.1 inches by 0.7 inches). Inside and around the diminutive... Read more...
Just a few years ago, 3D TVs were all the rage in the consumer technology space, and now it appears that the new focus is on virtual reality. VR headsets are coming out of the works like the Oculus Rift and the Samsung Gear VR, and now Leap Motion is looking to make the VR experience more immersive with its hand-tracking technology. While you have been able to attach a Leap Motion sensor to a VR headset in the past, it made for a clumsy and bulky experience — not to mention that you had to purchase two separate devices and a $20 mount. However, Leap Motion announced today that is has partnered... Read more...
It may look pretty much unchanged on the outside, but there are plenty of changes under the hood with the 4.47-pound, 14-inch Razer Blade gaming notebook. For starters, the amount of standard RAM has been doubled from 8GB to 16GB. In addition, the 2.6GHz Intel Core i7 4720HQ (3.6GHz with Turbo Boost) is a noticeable step up from the 2.2GHz Core i7 4702HQ that was in last year’s model. Unfortunately, fifth generation Intel Core processors aren’t in the cards this time around.  When it comes to graphics, Razer ditched the “old and tired” GeForce GTX 870M for the “new hotness”: a Maxwell-based...

When you're on the path to becoming a power user, you begin to notice certain things that the average person might not. One of those is the difference between typing on a sweet mechanical keyboard with luxurious key action versus pounding away on a run-of-the-mill squishy plank that relies on mushy membranes to register your keystrokes. The difference may seem subtle to the uninitiated, though even casual typists can recognize that there's something inherently superior about typing on a mechanical keyboard, even if they can't pinpoint what exactly it is. Of course, we know it's the mechanical... Read more...
Razer today announced that its Nabu smartband will begin its world tour in North America on December 2, at which time you'll be able to purchase the wearable device for $100 at Razer's online store and, shortly after, from select retailers. It will be available in two sizes -- small-medium and medium-large -- along with four color options that include green, white, orange, and black (kudos to Razer for refraining from making up fancy names for its color options, like "Toxic Green" for example). What exactly is the Nabu? Short and simple, it's a smartband with various capabilities (we caught our... Read more...
The co-founder of Razer didn't mince any words when posting a humble apology to the company's Facebook page for failing to deliver Razer Blade laptops to gamers in a timely manner. Point blank, Min-Liang Tan said that Razer's "been doing a terrible job anticipating and meeting demand" for its products, including the Blade announced in March of this year, which still hasn't arrived in the hands of many gamers who pre-ordered on the day of launch. "I wish I could claim t hat it's a one off situation and we'll do better the next time -- for the past couple of years, every time we launch a new product,... Read more...

You won't find larger fans of mechanical keyboards than right here, which is why we're pretty pumped each time we see a company push the envelope in the space. Razer's the latest to do so, introducing a the Mechanical Switch. It's a mechanical keyboard technology engineered first for gaming, while most of the mechanical boards on the market cater first to typists. As you'd expect, Razer invested a bit of time in researching the needs of gamers, identifying the "optimal actuation distance for a gaming switch to a fraction of a millimeter and reduced the distance between the actuation and reset point...

Razer has impressed at past CES events with innovative ideas such as Project Fiona (which became the Razer Edge), and the company is looking to conjure up that magic again with Project Christine, a unique, modular approach to constructing a gaming PC. Basically, the machine starts out with a spine of sorts onto which a number of modules can be attached. There are modules for CPUs, GPUs, storage, RAM, and everything else; all of the components sync via PCIe interfaces, so ostensibly all you need to do to upgrade a component is to pop in a new module. Want to upgrade from a single GPU to a tri-SLI... Read more...
As much as we'd all like to sit around and play video games all day long, there are certain external factors that pull us away from the PC from time-to-time. You know, niggling things like work, exercise, weddings, birthday parties, food shopping, graduation ceremonies, Little League games, and the list goes on. For those times when you have to step away from the keyboard but still want to be kept in the loop with your gaming buddies, Razer has a solution. Razer Comms, now available for Android devices, is the world's first VoIP solution to allow games to make VoIP calls and messages from in-game... Read more...
Hello Razer, have we met before? You may ask yourself the same question after spying the peripheral maker's new Kraken Forged Edition headphones. Razer's been known to put out some solid gaming accessories, no doubt about that, but the Kraken Forged Edition aims higher than Razer has perhaps ever aimed. Not only is this a premium (and premium priced) headset, Razer's touting it as the "best headphones" you can buy, point blank. "These are the best headphones on the market for both music and gaming, period," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. "We’ve made some... Read more...
