Razer has pulled the curtain on a couple of new products as the Las Vegas Convention Center officially opened its doors to CES 2012 attendees. First up is the Razer Naga Hex, a new gaming mouse that's reminescent of the Razer Naga MMO, except it drops six of the twelve thumb buttons and re-arranges them into a hexagonal pattern. The company says it is targeting the RPG/MOBA gaming crowd with this product -- if you are wondering what MOBA means it stands for 'Multiplayer Online Battle Arena'.
Razer has used a mechanical keys for the thumb buttons to ensure they don’t require too much force to press and execute an action. According to the company, this allows for 250 clicks per minute and a lifecyle of up to 10 million click, which should have gamers' obsessive clicking covered in titles like the upcoming Diablo 3.
The Hex comes with three interchangeable thumb rests of different heights so that users can find the most comfortable grip for themselves. Razer's latest gaming mouse, now available for preorder at $80, will ship at the end of January as one of the first devices supporting Razer Synapse 2.0 -- also launching today.
As previously reported, the revamped Synapse 2.0 service will let Razer device owners store macros, key binds, profiles and other settings into the cloud. The idea is to give users full access to all of their peripheral hardware settings anytime, anywhere. Synapse 2.0 makes the process effortless and saves you time by automatically rebinding all of your custom input settings via a simple login and sync process.
Fresh out of beta, the Razer Synapse 2.0 software is now available for everyone to download. Besides both Hex and MMO Naga gaming mice models, the service is also supported on the new Blade gaming laptop and Razer's Star Wars: The Old Republic gaming peripherals.
