With Synapse 2.0, Razer is shifting away from using on-board memory to store customized peripheral settings in favor of cloud support. The application will see a widespread release later this year, but for now, a closed beta is taking place.
Being able to move your gaming peripherals to multiple computers and not having to tinker with settings sounds nice, though it obviously won't be a relevant feature for everyone. For those seeking speed and ease of use, Synapse 2.0 also "automatically downloads drivers, game add-ons, and firmware updates."
Did anyone else go to the site and make the clouds scroll back and forth really quickly?
