Headsets can really add to your gaming experience, however, many are notoriously uncomfortable and headache-inducing. Razer just introduced the Kraken X, an inexpensive and comfortable wired gaming headset aimed at gamers. According to lvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Peripherals at Razer the Kraken X is “...ultra-light and incredibly comfortable, so you can game for hours with it”. The Kraken X gaming headset only weighs 0.55 pounds (250 grams) and is one of the lightest gaming headsets currently on the market. It includes an adjustable headband, memory foam and cooling gel ear cushions. Razer also claims that the headset is “glasses-friendly”. Anyone who wears prescription... Read more...
I used to think that a toaster would be the final frontier for RGB lighting, but apparently Razer has that covered, or at least it is planning to. So what else does that leave? I'm not sure, maybe washing machines and dryers are on the radar. In the meantime, companies are coming up with new ways of leveraging RGB lights, with Vivaldi baking in support for Razer's Chroma lighting into the latest version of its web browser. In case you've never heard of it, Vivaldi is a cross-platform browser developed by a company founded by Opera Software co-founder Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner and Tatsuki Tomita. The idea was to re-introduce a bunch of features that had been axed during Opera's transition to... Read more...
When you hear the name Razer, the first thing that usually pops into mind are the company's gaming laptops or maybe its PC peripherals. Further down on that list might be the company's relatively new ventures like the Razer Phone. But kitchen appliances? That's definitely not something that would even come close to entering our minds, but Razer is doing just that with active development of a... toaster. Sure, the idea of a Razer Toaster goes all the way back to 2013, but it was more of a prank request by a fan of the company. Razer even got in on the "joke" with an April Fool's Day prank video back in 2016 (you can see the embed further down in the article).... Read more...
Razer has unveiled its latest gaming laptop, which is an update to the Razer Blade Pro 17. The machine packs a big 17.3-inch display into a chassis that Razer says is 25% smaller than other 17-inch gaming notebooks in its class. Despite the smaller chassis, the machine will stay cool under demanding workloads thanks to the Razer vapor chamber cooling system and multi-fan design. The CPU inside the Blade Pro 17 is a a new 9th gen Intel Core i7-9750H with a base clock of 2.6GHz and boost clock up to 4.5GHz. That CPU has six cores and supports HyperThreading; graphics are handled by the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, GeForce RTX 2070 with Max-Q, or GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q. Razer ships the notebook...

For people that like to carry a thin-and-light notebook around with them, but might on occasion need some extra graphics horsepower either for games or professional work, external GPU enclosures are a blessing. Rather than be limited by a meager Intel IGP, for example, you can toss in a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti into an enclosure to instantly boost your GPU capabilities. Razer announced today that is launching the new Core X Chroma external GPU enclosure. At first glance, the most noticeable change over the standard Core X is the addition of Razer Chroma RGB lighting in the lower front of the enclosure and internally. In addition, the 650-watt power supply has given way to an uprated 700-watt... Read more...
Are you tired of using a Xbox One controller with FPS games? Razer just released its Turret gaming keyboard and mouse that was first announced back in 2018 for the Xbox One. The keyboard and mouse combination boast several features, including Razer Chroma, 5G advanced optical sensors, and a 2.4 GHz wireless connection.

The original Razer Phone was one of the first entries into the growing gaming smartphone realm, and the company followed up with the Razer Phone 2 this past October. When the Razer Phone 2 launched, it had a flagship-worthy price tag of $799. Today, however, Microsoft is offering the smartphone with a healthy discount. The Microsoft Store has the Razer Phone 2 priced at $499, which is a nice $300 discount off the usual MSRP. That price gets you a stout smartphone with respectable specs (for a 2018 device). First of all, the Razer Phone 2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, which is paired with 8GB of RAM. Internal storage is a bit on the skimpy side at just 64GB,... Read more...
Android users typically wait in anticipation for their device to get the update to the latest flavor of Android; often times, that waiting can extend for months. Android 9.0 Pie was officially announced last August, first landing for the Google Pixel devices. Razer has now finally announced that the Android 9 Pie update is rolling out for the Razer Phone 2 that was announced in October. The update is rolling out first to users of the unlocked smartphone model. Razer expects the update to hit carrier models in mid-March. As for what users can expect from the update, it brings 4K video recording at 60 fps, gesture navigation, and more. A list of the main new features can be seen below. Adaptive... Read more...
Razer is rolling out a new limited edition gaming laptop and complementing accessories for those that don't mind being tickled pink. Witness the new Razer Blade Stealth Quartz Pink, which is based on the company's standard Blade Stealth gaming laptop (which was given a hardware refresh back in early December). The only major change is that the entire laptop is decked out in pink, which isn't exactly our style, but is sure to appeal to more than a few gamers out there. Since the choice of color is the only standout feature, you'll still get an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8565U (Whiskey Lake) processor with 16GB DDR3-2133 RAM, 256GB PCIe SSD, 13.3-inch Full HD display, an NVIDIA MX150...

Razer has announced a new gaming monitor at CES 2019 called the Razer Raptor. This is a concept design that Razer says it is an early-design-phase model, but it promises that production units will be available later this year. The Raptor promises ultra-wide viewing angles with custom-calibrated WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. The display uses an IPS edge-to-edge panel with 2.3mm thick bezels. Razer says that the monitor will support AMD Radeon FreeSync adaptive sync technology with 1 ms MotionBlur reduction feature and a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz. The monitor covers 95% DCI-P3 color gamut and supports HDR content. Programmable color profiles address game and prosumer demands for optimized gaming,... Read more...
Razer today officially launched its new Razer Turret, which is a wireless mouse and keyboard combo specifically designed for the Xbox One platform. Microsoft first announced official mouse and keyboard support for its gaming consoles back in September, and Razer was listed as one of its early partners. Razer has a long and esteemed gaming pedigree, and it that extends to the Razer Turret, which uses 2.4GHz wireless tech to provide a stable connection to both the mouse and the keyboard with a single USB dongle that plugs into your Xbox One.  There's also a dedicated Xbox key that will invoke the home menu. The Razer Turret uses a combination of Xbox Dynamic Lighting and Razer... Read more...
Cryptocurrency has been a hot topic in 2018, and Google claims that “What is bitcoin?” was one of its top questions this year. A lot of people (and companies) jumped on the cryptocurrency train, including Razer. The company is now offering users store credit in exchange for cryptocurrency mining. But is this program too good to be true? Many argue that the Razer SoftMiner rewards program is misleading and exploitative. How does this rather confusing program work? Users are asked to download SoftMiner, a blockchain-based app that has been integrated into Razer’s software. The software is supposed to run silently in the background and draw upon a user’s idle GPU resources.... Read more...
Razer's Blade Stealth ultraportable is getting a big upgrade, and we must say that it's looking pretty good. The notebook has gotten a chassis redesign with smaller bezels to the left and right of the 13.3-inch Micro Edge display. Those bezels now measure 4.9mm thin, although you will still find a larger bezel at the top of the display (which is also home to an IR camera that supports Windows Hello) and an absolutely massive bezel below the display. With that being said, customers can opt for a Full HD matte display (100% sRGB color space) or a 4K panel (also 100% sRGB). When it comes to graphics power, this is the first time that Razer is giving the Blade Stealth the power of discrete graphics.... Read more...
