When it comes to gaming peripherals, those who are serious about their gaming sessions would rarely compromise. After all, there is something about having the right tools to get the job done, and a mechanical gaming keyboard is more often than not an integral component in the arsenal of a serious gamer, accompanied by a high performance gaming mouse to boot. SteelSeries is not one to shy away from rolling out high performance gaming peripherals, and their latest reveal would be the ten-keyless variant of its APEX M750 mechanical gaming keyboard. Aptly known as the Apex M750 TKL, this particular model features high build quality as well as esports performance level of the original M750, albeit arriving in a compact and transportable 10-keyless design.

For starters, the Apex M750 TKL will make use of SteelSeries’ proprietary QX2 mechanical switches in order to deliver unparalleled performance while gaming. It will also feature a sleek and durable 5000 Series aluminum metal-alloy frame complete with a black matte finish, accompanied by ultra-bright, individual RGB LEDs, and will play nice with SteelSeries Engine apps such as Discord Chat Integration, ImageSync, Audio Visualizer, PrismSync and GameSense to deliver important in-game notifications for gamers to enjoy the ultimate combination when it comes to beauty, performance and customization.

Razer Core V2 makes for an instant gaming laptop http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171024/razer-core-v2-instant-gaming-laptop/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171024/razer-core-v2-instant-gaming-laptop/#comments Tue, 24 Oct 2017 12:00:17 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268629 razer-core-v2When 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.

MSI Vortex G25 is a small form factor gaming beast http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171017/msi-vortex-g25-small-form-factor-gaming-beast/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171017/msi-vortex-g25-small-form-factor-gaming-beast/#comments Tue, 17 Oct 2017 12:00:42 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268455 vortex-g25When 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. The case itself might look really, really pretty, but if it does not have any high performance parts within, it would amount to nothing, either. MSI knows this, which is why they have come up with the Vortex G25 gaming desktop that will not only be able to deliver the level of performance that hardcore gamers crave, it will also look good without taking up too much space on your desk.

The Vortex G25 is not a conventional gaming desktop, courtesy of its small form factor setup. Taking it apart, it will be powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, with the ability to handle up to a GTX 1070 graphics card, all within a 2.5-liter chassis. Now that is really compact, no matter which angle you are looking from. Apart from that, the Vortex G25 gaming desktop will also boast of MSI’s Cooler Boost Titan technology that will feature dual blade fans that work in tandem with eight heatpipes. This setup will be able to ensure proper cooling of the CPU and GPU, which in turn provides a 30% performance gain compared to the previous generation of processors.

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. MSI’s very own Nahimic VR software will be able to optimize performance and virtual surround sound so that the whole virtual reality experience is even more immersive.

Expect the MSI Vortex G25 to retail for $1,999 and $1,499 for the Vortex G25-022US and the Vortex G25-023US, respectively.

Razer Atheris is a mouse for notebook users http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20170823/razer-atheris-mouse-notebook-users/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20170823/razer-atheris-mouse-notebook-users/#comments Wed, 23 Aug 2017 13:00:09 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=267082 razer-atherisMention Razer, and you would most probably have gaming-centric hardware and peripherals sweep across your mind. After all, Razer is a household name when it comes to delivering quality gaming peripherals for the hardcore gamer, but the company has taken a sideways look at road warriors and pitied them. Hence, the birth of the Razer Atheris, a wireless notebook mouse that lays claim to having the longest lasting battery life in its class, while delivering lag-free wireless gaming-grade performance.

Sounds too good to be true? Well, it isn’t. After all, Razer’s expertise in the gaming department has spilled over to the corporate side of things, and the result is the Razer Atheris. Specially designed for mobile work as well as play as it outlasts any competition, the Razer Atheris is capable of delivering up to 350 hours of non-stop use on just a couple of of AA batteries. This would be more than enough juice to last even the most boring of all boardroom meetings, and is also perfectly at home to meet the needs of intense gaming sessions on the go in order to alleviate stress at the workplace.

The Razer Atheris is special since it boasts of Razer’s proprietary wireless Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT), delivering industry-leading transmission that makes for the most reliable, stable connection. AFT is enabled whenever it connects via a compact USB dongle, and this USB dongle is easily stashed away in the mouse. Whenever there is no USB connection, fret not, just switch over to Bluetooth LE connectivity and you’re good to go. The Razer Atheris, with its 7200 DPI optical sensor, delivers blazing accuracy across multiple high-resolution monitors, while offering an unfair advantage during work or play. It will retail for $49.99 in the US, and €59.99 across the pond. Being an ambidextrous mouse certainly helps its case to be appealing to the masses.
