Razer's Synapse 2.0: Store Peripheral Settings in the Cloud

You probably know Razer as a peripheral company that's been on the gaming scene, producing keyboards and mice for years. However, this month, Razer is launching software, as opposed to hardware. Razer last week debuted Synapse 2.0, a software that allows users to keep a better handle on the various different custom settings they have set up for their peripherals.

Currently in beta (and set for full release at the end of this year), Synapse 2.0 means you can store your settings for your Razer equipment in the cloud and access those settings from anyway. This means if you're going to a tournament or a LAN party, you don't have to spend time fiddling with keyboard settings -- you can just sync with Synapse 2.0 and be on your way. Check the video below for more on Synapse 2.0:

Synapse 2.0 will be compatible with the Razer Naga and next-generation Razer products.

    I don't see the point. This would mean you have to disconnect the mouse and keyboard and bring it to another computer. Then you would have to download and install the drivers. I would think most people bring their computers with the settings to the LAN party.

    Well its probably something they created without much effort, so in that sense I guess it makes sense.
