Razer @ CES 2016

Three new products were released from Razer this year at CES; the Nabu watch, the Stargazer webcam, and the Core. The Core is an external graphics enclosure with plug and play support to help expand connectivity for the new Razer Blade Stealth, however the Core could be potentially used with any laptop that has a Thunderbolt (USB-C) connection. The core supports double wide graphics cards and has plug and play compatibility for graphics cards. The Core unit itself will also have an ethernet port along with 4 USB 3.0 ports and to follow Razer's current theme, it will also have Chroma lighting effects.


The Stargazer is Razer's one stop shop for webcamming and streaming and in the future should work seamlessly with The Razer Cortex Gamecaster software (still in beta). The Stargazer can do 720p @ 60 frames for HD video capture optimized for streaming while it also can do 1080p @ 30 frames for video conferencing. While having an automatic noise canceling dual array mic, it also has facial and gesture recognition. Another cool aspect about the webcam is that it can also clip out all the background images while only staying focused on its primary user. The only downside at the moment is that it is for Windows 10 only.

The Nabu Watch follows the path that the Nabu and Nabu X were on but brings it to another level with the integration into a full-on smart watch. The watch function itself will have about a year of battery life as it will run off of a replaceable coin cell battery all the while the secondary screen will run off a rechargeable battery that should last for about seven days. The secondary screen will be a 128 x 16 single color OLED screen and the watch should be shock resistant up to 5 meters while having a 5ATM water resistant rating.
