Razer Unveils iPad Pro Mechanical Keyboard Case

RzrMKcaseiPadPro_02 copy

IRVINE, Calif. – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the Razer Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical Switch, a first in the world of keyboard mechanical switches. The switches will be initially outfitted into the Razer Mechanical Keyboard Case for the Apple® iPad Pro.

Each Razer Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical switch features a true actuation and reset point. Presses are registered with 70 grams of force, mimicking the feel of full-size mechanical keyboards in a form factor that’s slim enough to accompany a mobile device.

Razer invested in its own exclusive keyboard switch production lines earlier this year to raise the bar on keyboard and keypad durability and performance. The investment into switch research and design by Razer led to new keyboard technology that made the extraordinarily thin design of the Razer Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical Switch possible. This also helped standard Razer Mechanical Switches set the benchmark for durability with an industry-best 80 million keystroke lifespan.

“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 exploring other applications in addition to the mechanical keyboard we’ve designed for the iPad Pro.”

The Razer Mechanical Keyboard Case for the Apple iPad Pro is equipped with Bluetooth technology for simple connecting and a metal kickstand. The case is available now at RazerStore.com. For more information, visit http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-keyboards-keypads/razer-mechanical-keyboard-ipad-pro

Razer Announces Sponsorship of Denial eSports

denial-esports

IRVINE, Calif. – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers and a pioneering supporter of competitive gaming, today announced its title sponsorship of North America-based Denial eSports. The eSports organization is known for teams competing in “Call of “Duty®,” “Halo™,” “League of Legends™,” and “Smite™.”

Among other considerations, the Razer and Denial deal provides the eSports team with gaming mice, keyboards, headsets, mouse mats and Razer’s professional-grade Wildcat Xbox One controller. Razer’s broadcasting product lineup, including the Stargazer webcam, Seiren Pro microphone, Ripsaw capture card and the Razer Cortex: Gamecaster streaming platform will also be used by Denial, providing a complete gamer ecosystem—hardware and software included.

“We’ve been using Razer products before we even started our journey to become professional gamers,” said “Smite” Jungler, Suharab “Masked” Askarzada. “To be officially a part of Team Razer is an incredibly exciting day for us personally, as well as professionally.”

Denial eSports is the latest big name to join Team Razer’s professional ranks. Since the team’s founding in 2014, Denial has won world championships for “Call of Duty” and “Gears of War.” The team also finished second in the world in “Smite.” Denial eSports was named “Halo” UGC and “Call of Duty” UMG champions.

“Denial is one of the most accomplished teams in North America,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We’re thrilled that they are now officially a part of Team Razer.”

Razer was the first company to sponsor a professional gamer in 2000 when it sponsored Jonathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel with the Razer Boomslang, the world’s first gaming mouse that helped shape the multi-billion-dollar gaming peripherals industry. Today, Razer sponsors more than 20 teams and upward of 200 competitive players in 20-plus countries worldwide.

Razer Unveils Razer Naga Hex V2

razer-nagahexv2-heroimage-mask

LOS ANGELES (E3 2016) – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced its latest gaming mouse, the Razer Naga Hex V2.

Designed for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games, the Razer Naga Hex V2 buffs it to an OP level, with a 7 button mechanical thumb wheel optimized for MOBA gaming and pre-configured MOBA profiles for maximum in-game efficiency.

“This gaming mouse will help MOBA gamers achieve a better balance between keyboard and mouse commands, allowing you to react better to different situations,” says Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, mid-laner for Team SKT’s professional “League of Legends” team. “The placement of those extra buttons gives you accuracy without the worry of mis-clicking.”

The world’s most advanced mouse technology powers the Razer Naga Hex V2. A 5G, true 16,000 DPI laser sensor ensures that movements across any display setup register precisely, whether it is a multi-monitor battle station or a 4k screen.

“The MOBA scene has become the most watched genre of eSports in the world, making games like League of Legends and Dota 2 more popular in terms of audience than many professional sports leagues,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We made the first mouse that was ever designed for these players and we’re happy to have improved upon an already great design.”

The Razer Naga Hex V2 follows Razer’s initial foray into mice designed specifically for MOBA players. Inventors of the original gaming mouse in 1998, Razer’s interest in advancing gaming has led to the company making mice specifically designed for MMO, mobile, ambidextrous and even left-handed gameplay.

Razer’s latest mouse will also exploit Powered by Razer Chroma™ technology, which unlocks customizable lighting features that can be synced across devices. Gamers can pick and choose from 16.8 million colors and a variety of effects. Custom settings can be created on the Razer Synapse software platform and shared with millions of other Razer software users via the Razer Chroma Workshop. In-game Razer Chroma lighting profiles are also integrated into popular game titles, including “Overwatch”, “Call of Duty®: Black Ops III”, “Blade and Soul” and more. These profiles can display tutorials, in-game actions and more.

overwatch-razer-gallery-1

IRVINE, Calif. – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the availability of PC peripherals for Overwatch™, the highly anticipated team-based shooter by Blizzard Entertainment, developer and publisher of some of the industry’s most epic games. The suite of customized hardware is led by the Razer ManO’War Tournament Edition (TE) analog wired gaming headset – Razer’s most powerful and feature-packed gaming headset to-date – and is rounded-out with a BlackWidow Chroma keyboard, DeathAdder Chroma mouse and Goliathus Extended mouse mat.

Gamers can look forward to uncompromised audio performance and an array of dynamic Razer Chroma™ lighting effects with the Overwatch-themed mouse and keyboard from Razer, which will change based on in-game actions, including displaying a hero’s signature color, abilities and cooldowns, all displayed in real time.

The Overwatch Razer ManO’War TE gaming headset is designed for performance and comfort over hours of play. It includes a fully retractable MEMS mic with inline volume and mute controls, making verbal communication easy to adjust and crystal clear in the heat of battle. The fully retractable microphone boom pulls out from the left ear cup as needed and its flexible design allows it to be adjusted to a player’s needs on the fly.

The headset has extra-large, 50 mm, gaming-grade drivers that are custom-tuned to ensure team chat and audio cues, like McCree’s Deadeye or Lucio’s Sound Barrier, are heard the way they were intended. A closed ear cup design with plush circumaural padding blocks-out ambient noise. The ear cups on the Overwatch Razer ManO’War TE are also rotatable and have ample, plush ear cushions.

The 3.5 mm connection and included splitter adapter extension cable make the Overwatch Razer ManO’War TE ideal for compatibility with a multitude of platforms.

“We’re proud to give Overwatch players an even more immersive experience with incredible audio and ideal hardware with custom-designed themes and in-game Chroma lighting effects,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Overwatch is among the most dynamic and visually impressive games I’ve experienced in years, and the peripherals we’ve designed with Blizzard add a whole new dimension to the fun.”

The new line of Razer BlackWidow Chroma Overwatch gaming keyboards will also feature the multi-award winning Razer™ Mechanical Switch™, recently updated with an optimized set of actuation and reset points and increased durability of up to 80-million key strokes.

Razer began the search for a suitable retail location for a RazerStore near its global headquarters across from Moscone Center following the successful launch of RazerStores abroad, which included one location that attracted a line of more than 2,000 fans that camped overnight for the opening day. The street-level space at Westfield San Francisco Centre proved the perfect solution for convenience, technological resources, amenities and the space needed for Razer to meet its game-loving guests.

“San Francisco is a unique global epicenter of creativity, technology and entertainment, and it’s our home town, so creating a phenomenal environment for gamers here was a very special endeavor,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We are happy to say that the SF RazerStore foots the bill in every way, and we are excited to open our doors to our fans in the Bay Area.”

Similar to other RazerStores, the newest location is focused on giving gamers a real hands-on, immersive gaming experience by showing them the possibilities that come with the right technology and providing them with a place where they can engage with each other.

To further celebrate the inauguration of RazerStore San Francisco, opening weekend will include exciting events and opportunities for gamers to get their hands on premium Razer products, such as T-Shirts, L33t packs, and for the lucky contest winners, Razer mice, keyboards, headsets and more.

The Westfield San Francisco Centre is located in San Francisco at 865 Market St., San Francisco CA 94103.

Razer opened its first store in Asia in May of this year at Syntrend Creative Park in Taipei. It followed-up with RazerStore locations in Manila and Bangkok.

Razer Announces Razer Turret Hybrid Mouse and Keyboard

Rzr_Turret_ProductPhoto_TiltedV2

IRVINE, Calif. – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the much-anticipated release of the Razer Turret, a mouse and integrated keyboard and mouse surface that together deliver the power of desktop-grade gaming peripherals into the laps of gamers. The combo was originally unveiled as a prototype in early 2015.

Designed with a focus on enabling a PC gaming experience from the couch, the Razer Turret consists of a gaming grade chiclet keyboard with full anti-ghosting and a highly precise gaming mouse with a 3500 DPI sensor. The integrated magnetic mouse mat ensures the mouse will not slip even during intense gaming sessions.

“The Razer Turret brings the immense world of PC gaming to a previously impossible frontier—the living room—where only consoles have traditionally roamed until now,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “Finally, we have a perfect solution for gamers to enjoy the unrivaled precision of a mouse and keyboard combination from the comfort of the couch with the durability and reliability that PC gamers demand.”

The Razer Turret comes with dual wireless connectivity, enabling users to play lag-free when connected to a console via Bluetooth LE or to a PC via the bundled wireless 2.4 GHz adaptor. The performance of the Razer Turret rivals desktop-grade gaming hardware, providing a tactical weapon that can be unleashed on opponents from a casual environment.

The Razer Turret’s ergonomic and ultra-slim form factor is made specifically to fit on a user’s lap. A foldable hinge ensures that the lapboard is unobtrusive and dock-able, leaving it a normal part of the living room environment when not in use.

Made to withstand even the most action-packed gaming marathons, the Razer Turret has built-in high-capacity lithium polymer batteries, so a player’s kill streaks will not be interrupted by untimely battery warnings. By supporting up to four months of usage on the keyboard (an estimated 40 hours of nonstop play on the mouse), Razer Turret owners won’t have to charge their gaming weapons after every use.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:

Keyboard

  • Anti-ghosting capability for up to 10 simultaneous key presses
  • Chiclet styled keycaps

  • Battery life of up to 4 months – The life expectancy of this battery depends upon its usage

Razer Announces ManO’War Wireless Gaming Headset

manowar-gallery-v1-3

IRVINE, Calif. – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the release of its new wireless gaming headset for PC, the Razer ManO’War. This latest addition to Razer’s audio line offers high-fidelity, gaming-grade audio engineered with multiple wireless antennas, frequency channel scanning for locating the clearest channel and an advanced coding algorithm to ensure a high-performance, lag-free, 2.4 GHz wireless experience.

An ultra-compact wireless USB adapter provides plug-and-play connectivity from up to 39 feet. Alternately, users may opt to use the Razer ManO’War’s optional extension dock for an even greater 46-foot range.

Immersive 7.1 channel virtual surround sound in the Razer ManO’War is supported by the Razer Surround software engine. Paired with the RazerManO’War’s custom tuned 50 mm Neodymium magnet drivers, Razer Surround makes virtual soundscapes come alive with 360-degree fidelity. The positional audio calibration feature helps to personalize the hearing experience to ensure players have the auditory cues they need get the jump on opponents, visible or otherwise. Closed-style, upgraded leatherette cushions cover a wearer’s entire ear, enhancing noise isolation and comfort.

Concealed in the left ear cup of the Razer ManO’War is a unidirectional digital microphone boom that easily pulls-out when needed and can be adjusted to whatever position is desired. The microphone surpasses the capabilities of traditional analog microphones by way of an optimized algorithm for more natural sounding and crystal clear voice reproduction. Gamers may adjust mic and volume levels and mute via Quick Action Controls on the Razer ManO’War’s ear cups. A mute LED indicator on the boom illuminates when mic mute is active.

Razer ensured the headset was prepared for long stretches of uninterrupted, unfettered enjoyment. Whether streaming, watching a movie or in a gaming marathon, it is able to give an impressive 14 hours of continuous wireless use on a single charge.

Finally, Razer Chroma™ lighting features built into the Razer ManO’War Chroma allow gamers to explore a practically limitless number of possible lighting profiles. With 16.8 million colors to choose from, custom color schemes can be programmed for the headset using Razer Synapse, or users may select from an array of preloaded lighting options. For gamers playing titles with in-game Chroma integration, the Razer ManO’War becomes an instrument for even deeper levels of immersive gameplay.

“The Razer ManO’War combines the perfect balance of wireless performance, comfort and durability in a gaming-grade headset,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “The freedom to play without wires, uninterrupted, with the comfort, sound quality and incredible battery life of this headset is more than exciting for gamers—it’s critical.”
