This keyboard that was created specially for gamers have been redesigned in order to be more resilient, boasting of an IP54 rating in order to keep it protected against any kind of accidental water spillage or harmful dust particles.

Of course, gaming can be a difficult task, especially when you spend hours in a marathon session. Hence, it makes perfect sense to have some drinks nearby, but during your frenetic session, you might accidentally knock over that glass containing soda or water all over the place. Normal keyboards would normally be consigned to the rubbish heap after such an accident, but not the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate as it will keep on going.

Expect to be awed by its individually backlit keys, where each green LED can be customized via Razer’s Synapse software. This would result in a wide range of dynamic lighting effects that will comprise of Wave, Ripple, Reactive, and Starlight, among others. Gamers will also gain the ability to create different kinds of lighting profiles courtesy of the advanced lighting effect configurator. In addition, this gaming keyboard is equipped with the Razer Green Switch that has a rated lifespan of up to 80 million keystrokes. In other words, you would most probably still be able to game with this keyboard many years down the road after several hardware upgrade cycles as though it was just unpacked from its box.

Razer Core V2 makes for an instant gaming laptop

When one talks about laptops, the general idea is this: laptops are not meant to function as a gaming machine, unless stated otherwise. The thing about gaming laptops is this, they tend to be rather bulky and are great power guzzlers due to the kind of powerful hardware packed underneath the hood. Razer decided that you can have the best of both worlds through the introduction of the Razer Core V2. The Razer Core V2 is able to transform highly mobile Thunderbolt 3 laptops into a portable, desktop-class gaming machine where all it requires would be a solitary Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connection in order to hook up your existing laptop to this graphics enclosure.

Chances are, after you have hooked up the Razer Core V2 to your laptop, the bottleneck would no longer be in the video card department. Rather, it would most probably be the processor, hard drive, or even lack of memory that causes gaming performance to drop. We say this because the Razer Core V2 boasts of the world’s first dual Thunderbolt 3 internal controller design which will sport separate lanes for graphics and connected devices, delivering fluid gameplay. This external graphics enclosure will be accompanied by a quartet of USB 3.0 ports as well as Gigabit Ethernet in order to hook up a wide range of different peripherals.

Made from a block of durable raw aluminum, the chassis is CNC precision milled in order to deliver a very compact form factor. It comes with its own 500W power supply in order to deliver a right amount of power when it comes to graphics and connected devices, while extra cooling fans have been built into the design to help dispense heat quickly in order to achieve an optimal level of performance. It can fit an expanded range of taller graphics cards, including support for the NVIDIA GeForce 10 series and AMD Radeon 500 series with XConnect technology. The Razer Core V2 will retail for $499 apiece and is currently available for purchase.

When it comes to gaming, one very important element that most people would take into consideration first would be the kind of hardware that the gaming PC packs underneath the hood.

One of the main reasons for developing the Vortex G25 is to have it function as a gateway for portable and convenient VR experiences. The front panel itself features a power jack which can help to power connected VR headsets, while there is also an HDMI port and a couple of USB 3.0 ports in terms of connectivity.
