After teasing the world with hints that something big was coming, Razer today took the veil off its latest Blade Pro notebook. What's so special about it? Well, Razer promises that it will feel like a "desktop in your laptop", something that goes beyond simple performance metrics. The new Razer Blade Pro is in fact a powerhouse, sporting NVIDIA's top-end GPU under its hood: GeForce GTX 1080. That will allow this laptop to handle today's hottest games at up to 1440p with great detail and framerates, and 4K with good detail and framerates. That's some serious performance for a mere notebook, especially... Read more...
It seems like only yesterday that Disney snatched up Lucasfilm for just over $4 billion, and now, we have yet another George Lucas-created enterprise finding a place under a different wing: THX. THX was founded 33 years ago in an attempt to deliver the best possible sound quality for the upcoming George Lucas film, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. It remained under Lucasfilm's umbrella until 2002, at which point it was picked up by another legendary audio company: Creative. Fast-forward to today, and the brand has changed hands again, to peripheral giant Razer. One of Razer's latest audio products,... Read more...
If you've never heard of Razer's DeathAdder gaming mouse, then chances are good that you're not a PC gamer. Since the launch of its original model ten years ago, the DeathAdder became the de facto gaming mouse, one that few seemed to have complaints. That's to be expected given its great comfort, great control, and of course, great aesthetics. Continuing the DeathAdder legacy is the brand-new DeathAdder Elite, a mouse that features Razer's own 5G optical sensor to speed movement up to 16,000 DPI at 450-inches-per-second. Razer says that both metrics set a new standard for the industry, and if you... Read more...
Two big names in gaming are coming together for one kickass, Intel-powered gaming rig. Those two companies are Razer and Maingear, and the product of their collaboration is the Maingear R1 Razer Edition gaming desktop. Given the partnership between the two companies, you can see some of the signature design characteristics of each in the R1 Razer Edition. Razer lends its green lighting and minimalistic black exterior design. Maingear’s always exceptional build quality and Origami Wiring is clearly on display. The overall look is very clean, and we’re sure that Slimer would be right at home inside... Read more...
Are you a mechanical keyboard purist that demands the lightning-fast, unmistakable response of true switch actuation? Do your digits sometimes feel the fatigue of battle after protracted gaming beat-downs? Or do you prefer the cushy, forgiving feel of a membrane key switch but wish they had just a be more tactile feedback and key travel to help keep your bearings and pace? Razer may have just launched what could offer the best of both worlds with its new Razer Ornata and Ornata Chroma keyboards. PC gaming systems and peripherals company Razer has announced the Razer Ornata line of gaming keyboards...

Now that Intel has officially pushed Kaby Lake out the door, we can expect to see plenty of announcements from its hardware partners on new products. That is exactly the case with regards to Razer, which has announced a refresh to its 12.5-inch Blade Stealth notebook. Razer has made a notable brain transplant, swapping out the previous Skylake-based processor for a new 2.7GHz Intel Core i7-7500U. Razer also amped up the memory and storage subsystems of the Blade Stealth, so you can now spec the machine with up to 16GB of LPDDR3-1866MHz memory and up to a 1TB PCIe SSD. As for the display, base systems... Read more...
Razer has gone and built itself a new mechanical key switch, but you won't find it implemented in any gaming keyboards for the PC, at least not right off the bat. Instead, Razer's new "Ultra-Low-Profile Mechancial Switch" will initially be outfitted into a keyboard case for Apple's iPad Pro tablet. Who would've guessed, right? "We’re commonly thought of as a company that makes phenomenal products for gamers, but to design the very best products, we’ve had to innovate from the ground up – even from each individual component such as mechanical switches," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO....

The ultrabook market shows no signs of cooling off any time soon. We've recently explored different flavors from all the top vendors including HP's Spectre x360 15t, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga, ASUS's Zenbook UX-305CA and our reigning Editor's Choice in Dell's XPS 13. There's a lot to love about these premium thin and light machines. And though each offers its own careful balance of tradeoffs, it's tough to have it all in such a slim package. Most ultrabooks these days offer the likes of Intel's U Series processors or even Intel Core M chips when they really want to push boundaries and sack an onboard... Read more...
Shopping for a laptop often entails a series of compromises. For example, do you want blazing fast graphics and a burly CPU, or would you prefer a system that's thin and light with exceptional battery life? Rather than choose between those options, Razer says you can have it all by pairing its external graphics enclosure called Core with its newly refreshed Blade laptop. If that sounds enticing, you can place a pre-order for the Razer Core today, which will ship out in April. The $499 accessory is the world's first plug-and-play Thunderbolt 3 external graphics box. Razer first teased the Core earlier... Read more...
Choosing a laptop usually involves a series of compromises, one of those being power versus portability. On one hand, Ultrabooks offer the convenience of thin and light designs that make toting them around easy, but if you want powerful graphics and gaming performance, a chunky desktop replacement is in order. Or is it? Razer is challenging that notion with its new Blade Stealth laptop and external "Core" graphics accessory. Let's start with the Blade Stealth. This latest model measures a scant 0.52 inches at the waistline and checks in at a mere 2.75 pounds. It's CNC milled out of aircraft grade... Read more...
Lenovo is the biggest PC OEM in the world, and we were reminded of that fact yesterday when the company released a whole gaggle of Think-branded notebooks, convertibles, tablets, and all-in-one devices. But the Chinese company isn’t finished; tonight it’s time for Round 2, which means we’re seeing a heavy dose of consumer-centric product announcements. First up is the new Yoga 900S, which is the world’s thinnest ultraportable convertible, measuring in at just 12.8mm thick and weighing in at 2.2 pounds. Lenovo is able to achieve this thinness (while maintaining chassis durability... Read more...
Although Lenovo already has a lineup of high-powered gaming desktop and notebook computers, it’s not exactly the first brand that we think of when it comes to satisfying our PC gaming fix. Lenovo, however, is looking to change that with a new partnership with well-known gaming enthusiast company Razer. The somewhat odd pairing will see both Lenovo and Razer co-brand and co-market Lenovo’s Y Series gaming rigs as Lenovo Razer Edition products. The first product birthed from this fresh marriage is the Lenovo Razer Edition Gaming Desktop, and from a performance standpoint, there doesn’t appear to... Read more...
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...
