Day 2 Wrapup - Razer and AMD

Razer:

Razer is famous for their mouse, and they had the Razer Death Adder on hand.  This mouse looks great and is one of their first Right-Hand mice.  Previously their mice have been ambidextrous and the Death Adder breaks this trend and is the answer to Right-Handed gamers everywhere.

We continue on with the gaming devices and peripherals with a stop by the Razer Booth.  Razer has a bunch of new products on the bench that include keyboards, mice, and even a THX certified speaker system.  They had a THX representative on-site to demo the new Razer Mako speakers, and they were very impressive.  The two satellite speakers are down firing and have a very interesting design.  At first glance they appear pretty cheesy, but once they play some audio - whether movies, music or games - the speakers come alive.  The sound quality was incredible and because of the down-firing technique, the sound field was even at different heights.  Generally speaking when you set up a set of speakers, you want them head-level and pointed toward the listener.  These speakers are omni-directional and can be placed at any height.  Hearing is believing and I wish you could all hear.

On the other side of the consumer coin is the Razer Pro Solutions.  These products are geared toward the consumer who demands excellence while also demanding functionality, and good looks.  Razer's Pro Solutions include mice, keyboards, mousepads and more.

AMD:

We stopped by the AMD booth to talk about their LIVE program, and many of you may not realize that this is a free software initiative instead of being hardware dependent such as Intel's ViiV platform.  AMD will let you try out this software without forking over money for their processor and chipset.  This is a huge bonus as it can run on virtually any current PC on the market.  To achieve the best experience, AMD recommends a Dual Core CPU and a GB of ram, but that is to provide the best experience.  It is completely possible to run this software on a single core Intel laptop and achieve a very usable experience.  We have more information about AMD, but are leaving that for a later time when we can research their technology a bit more.
