You had to know it was coming. With every company and sub-company gravitating to the cloud, Razer's joining 'em. The company has just announced he all-new Razer Synapse 2.0, the world’s first application for storing your personalized peripheral settings in the cloud, making your settings for gaming available anytime, anywhere. In 2006, Razer invented Synapse, the world’s first onboard memory feature for gaming peripherals, which allowed the user to store gaming macros, key binds, and profiles directly to their Razer devices, and enabled gamers to bring their personalized settings with them on the go. Onboard memory for gaming devices, pioneered by Razer, has quickly become an industry standard for gaming peripherals all over the world.


With Razer Synapse 2.0, all of your Razer peripheral settings for any next generation Razer gaming device will be automatically stored in a cloud server which is accessible from any computer. You will be able to take your mouse to a LAN center and instantly sync your custom settings simply by logging into Razer Synapse 2.0. You can even access your custom settings while using Razer peripherals provided by a tournament host, enabling you to spend less time setting up controls and more time gaming. Razer Synapse 2.0 also automatically downloads drivers, game add-ons, and firmware updates as they become available, ensuring your Razer devices are always updated.


Razer Synapse 2.0 will be launched for all next generation Razer devices and the software is currently in an internal beta stage. The next stage of closed beta will be rolled out initially to selected users of the multi-award winning Razer Naga, where up to 500 Razer Naga users can get a first glimpse of Razer Synapse 2.0 by signing up at http://www.razerzone.com/synapse2.

Good for some, but not for me. I've always been against the Cloud concept & always will be.

Why is that? Security concerns?

Sounds pretty cool but couldn't the same functionality by typing the numbers into a text file and then copying that file into a USB drive...

I don't like the cloud concept either, but it will mean you'll be able to get into gaming just that little bit faster.
