Razer Forge

Is it just me or does this seem a more efficient solution than building a dedicated Media PC or Steam Machine for living Room gaming?

Re: Razer Forge

What happened to STEAMOS, lol
Well, if the keyboard/mouse combo is actually fully functional with no noticeable lag then I'd be interested.
I could finally retire the lounge gaming rig, which does nothing most of the time except host the odd game of SIMS now and then.

That would mean the SIMS would run on my much more powerful gaming rig, which would really please the gf.

But i seriously wonder about latency and lag. Have to wait and see.

This is the question.

If this tech works out for Razer it's gonna bend Gabe Newell out of shape a bit...it could be a Steam box killer...$150.00 including controller.

Re: Razer Forge

More on this streaming tech "Razer Cortex"....Zap, they are claiming ultra-low latency with proprietary tech...proof will be in the reviews, which I will be awaiting with interest.
