After presenting his virtual reality headset, Razer continues to want to establish himself a little more directly in the world of video games. The accessorist specializing in peripherals dedicated to players lifts the veil on the Forge TV, a micro console that already benefits from some dedicated accessories.
The machine is powered by a Qualcomm snapdragon 805 SoC with four cores clocked at 2.5 GHz associated with an Adreno 420 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. There is 16 GB of storage memory, all in a square case 10.5 cm side by 1.7 cm thick. The Forge TV has several connectors: Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Ethernet, USB 3.0 and HDMI 1.4. Its advertised price is ? 99.99 or ? 149.99 with a Serval controller.
Everything operates from Android TV, the Google OS specially designed to operate on large screens. All games in the Play Store are announced as compatible, but the console hides its game well.
Indeed, Razer also announced the development of Streaming PC Cortex, software integrated into the Forge TV that will allow it to stream DirectX 9 compatible games from a PC to the living room TV. The brand promises reduced latency, whether using its Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection.
Finally, Razer also presented the Turret which presents itself as a keyboard and mouse pack with a retractable worktop.
