Razer Introduces Cloud-Based Storage for Gaming Peripherals

on October 20, 2011 3:30 PM

Ever been somewhere that was outside of your comfort zone and you were there for a LAN event or some sort of game tournament? Isn’t it annoying when before every game there is some down time, because everyone is working on getting their settings all figured out and calibrated? Razer is looking to change that with the Razer Synapse 2.0.

The original Synapse idea was introduced in 2006, and that allowed the ability to save specific settings (key binds, macros, etc.) onto the devices itself. Now, Synapse 2.0 is looking to take that a step further by allowing you to retrieve these settings from any place by using cloud-based technology.

“Razer Synapse 2.0 is a testament to our drive to continually innovate for the benefit of the gamer and end-user,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, President, Razer USA. “Razer Synapse 2.0 gives gamers a convenient, single cloud-based platform to access, maintain, and store settings for all of their Razer devices. On-board memory, with its limited storage for user profiles, becomes obsolete when Razer Synapse 2.0 offers essentially unlimited space for all of your hardware settings.”

So where ever you are and you’re caught off guard by a impromptu gaming tournament, you can simply log on to your Synapse 2.0 profile and be ready to go. I’m sure lots of people will find this very convenient, especially the super competitive.
