Following on from yesterday’s announcement by Razer that the company has developed a new Android gaming console called the Razer Forge TV. Which it has specifically designed to enable users to stream almost any PC game directly to their large screen TV or similar.
Razer has been showcasing their new Forge TV this week at the ongoing CES 2015 Consumer Electronics Show currently taking place in Las Vegas and below you can see a quick three minute hands-on video providing a closer look at the Android based games console created by Razer thanks to Brad Linder.
Razer is hoping to launch their new Forge TV games console later this year making it available worldwide for around $100. The Android console will provide a similar experience to that of the Nvidia Shield hardware, but rather than relying on specific processors and graphics cards to be able to stream games, the Razer Android console uses software rather than hardware providing support for a much wider range of PC games.
The Razer Forge TV is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor supported by 2GB of RAM together with 16GB of internal storage. Supports streaming for DirectX 9 games and higher, Google Play apps, local multiplay for up to four players, together with a variety of multimedia applications as well as Google Cast.
“Razer Forge TV was built to bring hard-core gaming and entertainment to the big screen. Forge TV opens the gateway for next-level Android gaming that is designed for the serious gamer. Intense Full HD graphics combined with the Razer Serval controller provide the detail and precision that is needed to dominate the living room.”
Other features of the new Razer Android games console include connectivity via Bluetooth 4.0, Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi as well as a handy USB 3.0 port. For more information on the new Razer Forge TV PC game streaming system and full specifications jump over to the Razer website for details.
