The Razer also includes a 5G laser sensor that provides 16,000 DPI, 210 inches-per-second (IPS) tracking and 50 G acceleration. The Lancehead is the first Razer device... Read more...

It may too good to be true, but you can now earn digital currency while playing certain game titles. That's thanks to Razer, and its new program to reward avid gamers with 'zSILVER'. Supported titles include Overwatch, Dota 2, and League of Legends. zSILVER ties into Razer's payment system zVault, which lets gamers deposit funds into a virtual account to spend it across multiple titles. That particular currency is called zGOLD, so you can probably begin to sense the theme here. To put it simply: zGOLD requires real money for digital goods, while zSILVER requires digital currency for real goods. Earning zSILVER is simple, as long as you're willing to install Razer's Cortex software. This software... Read more...

Razer prides itself on dedicating its resources to the hardcore gaming community, so the company is upping the ante a bit today with an upgrade to its popular BlackWidow Chroma mechanical gaming keyboard. Called the BlackWidow Chroma V2, it brings a few new features that will surely impress even the most critical gaming enthusiasts. The keyboard, which is targeting gamers in the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) and First Person Shooter (FPS) genres, is the logical progression of the original BlackWidow, which was released in 2010 and its many offspring. For starters, the BlackWidow Chroma V2 now includes a magnetic wrist rest, which is ergonomically beneficial during extending gaming sessions.... Read more...
Razer stole the spotlight at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) by unveiling a prototype laptop with three integrated displays—a center panel and two that fold out on both sides—only to have two of them stolen right from under its nose at the conclusion of the convention. The pinched "Project Valerie" laptops have since shown up an online auction site in China with an asking price of 150,000 Yuan (nearly $22,000 in U.S. currency) each.It was not initially clear what exactly had been stolen from Razer. When the theft first occurred, Razer CEO Min-Lian Tan posted a message on Facebook saying that two of the company's prototypes had been stolen from its booth. He hinted that "industrial espionage"...

  Razer had a lot to celebrate this year at CES. Last week, the company announced two prototype hardware projects that drew a lot of attention from regular show attendees and the press. The first was Project Ariana, which is a 4K projection system that delivers whole-room immersion with the help of Chroma lighting. The second was Project Valerie, which is a gaming laptop that features three 17.3-inch 4K displays. Unfortunately, it looks as though two of Razer’s prototypes were stolen right from under its nose. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan took to Facebook to explain that the prototypes were stolen straight from its CES booth. “We have filed the necessary reports and are currently working... Read more...
Razer CES 2017 announcements just keep rolling in. The company recently revealed that Razer Chroma, its flagship lighting technology, will now be available to third parties. Razer Chroma news, however, does not just stop there. Razer also announced that it is working on “Project Ariana”, the world’s first video projection system intended for gaming. Razer suggested that companies such as Lenovo, NZXT, Antec, Lian Li, Wicked Lasers, and Nanoleaf are eager to get their hands on Chroma. Third-party access to the 16.8 million-color palette will be granted through the Razer Chroma Module, a single hardware and software API. Razer Chroma is already on five million devices and has been integrated into... Read more...
In the words of Toby Keith, “one more is never enough”. Razer just introduced “Project Valerie”, the first portable laptop with three built-in monitors. Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan, remarked, “Multi-monitor desktop set-ups are becoming more necessary for professionals, creators, and gamers. For the first time, we’ve engineered a solution that users can take with them. Project Valerie promises all of the functionality of three screens and none of the hassle.”  Many customers will probably come for the three screens, but stay for their quality. Each 17.3-inch 4K IGZO monitor boasts NVIDIA G-SYNC, which helps produce smooth framerates. The displays are also equipped with 180 degree... Read more...
‘Tis the season to stomp on your enemies with the help of new gaming hardware, so we jumped at the chance to fire up a couple of Lenovo’s top gaming machines, a burly 17-inch gaming laptop and a gaming desktop PC designed in conjunction with Razer. Just a small side note: we're actually giving away these machines in the days ahead to a couple of lucky individuals participating in our Lenovo HOT Holiday Giveaway. We thought it might be interesting to preview these to beasts before we gave them away, though.  Regardless, the maker of the ThinkPad line has been fighting its way into the gaming market with the Y900 series, and as bold and powerful as these systems are, they have Lenovo’s...

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 considering the fact that it's much faster than what most enthusiast gamers even have in their... 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, Kraken Pro V2 headset While Razer offers products at a variety of price ranges - including modest... 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 don't believe it, it has another stat: the DeathAdder Elite hit the "highest measured resolution... 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 this weekend and with it the company has also unveiled a new type of key switch technology...

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.

As for the display, base systems are equipped with a QHD (2560 x 1440) panel, while you can also opt for a 4K UHD (3840 x 2160)... 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. "We’re excited about the potential of our Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical Switch and look forward to... Read more...
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 cooling fan altogether. These packages also usually lack a dedicated graphics chip so high end... 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 this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, where it immediately captured... Read more...
