Razer Forge TV with Android TV
It has been known since the summer of 2014 that Razor will be launching an Android TV game console and today the device is on display. The Razer Forge TV has a Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 2GB of RAM, an HDMI 1.4 output, has WiFi and bluetooth and USB 3.0 under the hood. The internal memory is stuck at 16GB. In principle, the Razor Forge TV works the same as Google’s Nexus Player , but it has one unique selling point that the Nexus Player does not.
The Razer Forge TV is able to stream games from your PC. And unlike the Nvidia Shield gaming tablet, it doesn’t matter if you have hardware from Nvidia or AMD. You play those games with a special bluetooth controller or the so-called lapboard called the Turret: a combination of keyboard and mouse that you can hold on your lap. The mouse does not fall off the board due to a magnet. When you attach your smartphone to the controller with a clip, you can also play that way in a familiar way.
The Forge TV streams games from your Steam, Battle.net, Uplay and Origin libraries, and can display almost any game in 1080 on the screen in your living room, without any delays. When the Razer Forge TV will come to Europe has not yet been announced. In North America, the console costs $ 100 and the controller $ 80, but when you buy that hardware in one package, it will cost you $ 150. The Turret will cost $ 130, but will bring the PC gaming experience into your living room.
