CES 2012: Razer Rolls Out Synapse 2.0

It’d be hard to pick which company launched the best, brightest and most impressive products from this years CES. Regardless of that Razer are giving it their all with some awe-inspiring announcements fresh from today’s CES show floor. First we had the jaw-dropping ‘Project Fiona’ tablet, then the MOBA designed Naga Hex mouse; now we have news that Razer are rolling out Synapse 2.0 immediately.

Synapse 2.0 is a cloud based auto-updating driver management and peripheral customization service that’s been in closed beta until this point. Now Razer are rolling it out – with immediate effect – to gamers everywhere. This means that their latest range of products will have full functionality the minute you turn them on.

Razer Synapse 2.0 is now available for download to the public and currently supports the Star Wars: The Old Republic gaming peripherals by Razer, the Razer Blade gaming laptop, Razer Naga HEX action-RPG/MOBA gaming mouse, and
the award-winning Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse.  Razer Synapse 2.0 is designed as a unified driver, so settings for Razer products are conveniently accessible through one single program instead of through separate and multiple drivers. Razer will continue to add support for more of Razer’s legacy and upcoming products.

[quote]”I’m proud of what we’ve done with Razer Synapse 2.0 – its value added for gamers who use Razer products.  We’ve made it easier for them to have the custom settings for their Razer peripherals stored in a cloud so they spend less time setting up and more time doing what they should be doing, gaming,” said Robert ‘RazerGuy’ Krakoff, President, Razer USA.[/quote]

The new Razer Synapse 2.0 software is built on next-gen, cloud-based technology to give gamers full access to all their peripheral hardware settings, anytime, anywhere at tournaments, LAN centers, at home and at the office.  Gamers will be able to take their Razer Naga HEX and any other supported peripherals to a LAN center and instantly sync their personalized custom settings simply by logging into Razer Synapse 2.0. Pro-gamers will be able to access custom settings while using Razer peripherals provided by a tournament host; so they spend less time setting up controls and more time gaming. As a unified driver for all upcoming Razer products, Razer Synapse 2.0 also automatically downloads game add-ons, and firmware updates as they become available, ensuring Razer devices are always updated and in optimum condition for winning.
