When the name MSI is mentioned, most of the time people would think of gaming notebooks as well as high-powered desktops that are able to churn out consistently high frame rates at excellent graphical quality. However, who would have thought that the Taiwan-based company would actually branch out to offer a little bit of something on the side? I am referring to the Mystic Knight gaming backpack, being an extremely versatile tech pack complete with more than enough storage space to stash a laptop of your choice, its accompanying gaming gear as well as other essential items that you bring about on your daily commute and workflow.
SteelSeries is no stranger when it comes to gaming peripherals, and their latest foray does not lie so much in high tech hardware but something that often goes unappreciated or unnoticed: the humble mousepad. No matter how sensitive a particular gaming mouse’s sensor is, it’s performance can be helped through the proper mousepad. SteelSeries has just the thing in mind by expanding its iconic QcK mousepad range that comprises of the new QcK Edge, QcK Prism Cloth, and QcK Hard.
Razer is no stranger when it comes to gaming peripherals that supposedly increases the efficiency of how you game, providing you with the very best hardware possible so that you can no longer place the blame on your mouse, keyboard, headphones or even mouse mat when you lose. At a very high level, even the thinnest margins count, and Razer has launched what it deems to be the fastest gaming grade Wi-Fi router in the market for various gaming platforms such as the PC, console and mobile in the form of the Razer Sila.
Are you a gaming enthusiast? If you have answered in the affirmative, then you would most probably have a particular gaming hardware brand that you are partial to. For those who are diehard SteelSeries fans, here is a new gaming mouse that might just pique your interest if you feel that your gaming sessions have reached a plateau, limited by the hardware that you use. The industry-changing Rival 650 wireless gaming mouse will certainly bring about a breath of fresh air as you indulge in your favorite gaming genre, as it boasts of lightning-fast Quantum Wireless 2.4GHz wireless connection and fast charging capability.
Razer might be far more famous for the sheer number of gaming peripherals that they come up with including mice, gaming mousemats, speakers, keyboards and even notebooks, but here is something that would turn heads wherever you go: the Razer Phone 2. Just like everything else that Razer rolls off from their production line, the Razer Phone 2 intends to be the very definition of flagship performance and true mobile gaming. After all, it was Razer who pioneered the segment of gaming smartphones with its predecessor, the Razer Phone, last year, and the sequel looks set to blow the competition away (if there are any worthy handsets in the first place).
Gamers take their hardware very seriously, and would do their level best in order to eke out the maximum amount of performance all the time in order to gain a competitive edge over their opponents. MSI, a name that has long delivered quality gaming notebooks in the past, continues to forge ahead into the future with a gaming PC that will certainly look different from what most of us have been used to. The all new Trident X compact desktop might seem like a souped-up workstation meant more for bean counting and word processing, but it is actually armed with the latest MSI GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards as well as Intel’s 9th generation Core K series processors.
Razer products have always maintained that degree of high performance capability no matter the situation, and this has enabled generations of gamers enjoy great precision and accuracy regardless of the game genre they indulge in. While visuals play a very important role in a game, so too does audio, and the announcement of the Razer Nari Ultimate wireless gaming headset that boasts of advanced haptics will seek to deliver a deeper immersive experience when it comes not only to gaming, but also for movies and music as well.
Remember how Counter-Strike used to be all the rage those years ago when the Half-Life mod grew to be a global phenomenon? Well, it is still a very popular game today, although there are other attractive alternatives around. SteelSeries has worked with Valve to churn out a limited-edition line of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) branded peripherals, where this new mouse and mousepad will boast of a design that is based on CS:GO’s most legendary gun skin, the M4A4 Howl.
When it comes to gaming, visuals play a very important role, but so does audio. Over the years, game developers have paid an equal amount of attention to audio details, and high quality headphones that help convey the in-game environment to gamers do their bit to help, too. Creative Labs has once again broken new barriers in gaming audio with the Sound BlasterX G6, touted to be the best gaming audio upgrade for consoles such as the Sony PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox and of course, the PC.
When it comes to gaming peripherals, there are very few names out there that stand out like Razer. Razer has been in the business for so many years, churning out one hit after another, so much so that their gaming hardware have proven to excel time and again. If you do not want to make any excuses that pinpoint the blame solely on your hardware upon conceding victory to your opponent while gaming, then pick a piece of Razer gaming hardware. For those who love the feel of an arcade stick when playing a beat ‘em up or shoot ‘em up as opposed to relying on a gamepad, the next evolution in arcade sticks is here: the Razer Panthera Evo arcade stick.
