LOS ANGELES (E3 2012) – Razer™, a high performance gaming hardware producer, today announced at the International Data Corporation’s (IDC) “Cloud and X-Platform Gaming” press conference that the company’s cloud-based service, Razer Synapse 2.0, in fewer than six months, has surpassed half a million1 user profile settings. Razer also announced that Razer Synapse 2.0 now supports the Razer DeathAdder gaming mouse, with other legacy products to follow, including the Razer BlackWidow mechanical gaming keyboard. With millions of Razer products in the hands of gamers today, Razer expects the number of user profile settings to continue to grow. 

Razer Synapse 2.0 is a unified configurator that allows synchronization of settings on Razer gaming peripherals and devices through one unique user ID. Designed to improve user experience, Razer Synapse 2.0 eliminates the need to repeatedly reconfigure user settings, profiles and other gaming content, and provides gamers with access to customized options such as macros and key-binds through a single platform. Favorite configurations can be saved via Razer Synapse 2.0, enabling users to replicate and port their user profiles between gaming devices over the cloud, allowing the gamer to move his personalized settings freely between LAN centers, tournament sites and his favorite gaming rigs.
