Razer case keeps your iPhone cool during intense gaming sessions

Razer case keeps your iPhone cool during intense gaming sessions Razer is jumping into the crowded world of iPhone cases, but with (what else?) a decidedly gaming-oriented twist. The company's newly introduced Arctech and Arctech Slim rely on a custom-developed Thermaprene material and perforations to transfer heat away from 2018 and newer iPhones (including the iPhone 11 line) as well as the Razer Phone 2, theoretically preserving your handset's performance and battery life while you're in a frenzied game session. The jury's still out on that, but Razer's tests showed the phone staying within recommended temperature limits for two hours where an unspecified rival case saw the phone run hot within 20 minutes.

Razer brings the next-generation upgrades to its Basilisk mice that it recently introduced with the Viper Ultimate: its improved HyperSpeed wireless technology and optical switches. Like the Viper, the Basilisk Ultimate has the new Focus Plus 20,000 dpi sensor (650 ips, 50G) and works with a combo dongle/charging dock.

The far less expensive Basilisk X HyperSpeed supports the a 2.4MHz wireless dongle connection, but can connect via Bluetooth as well. However, the X loses the resistance dial on the bottom used to control the mouse wheel and the sensitivity clutch switch that's one of the hallmarks of the Basilisk.

However, the charging pad is small, so unlike some wirelessly charging mouse pads, you won’t be able to use your mouse as it charges. HyperX says you should get 50 hours of mousing out of a single charge, but there’s no mention of how long it takes the wireless charging pad to fully recharge the PulseFire Dart.

Razer has announced two new wireless gaming mice , the Razer Basilisk Ultimate and the Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed. Despite the names, both mice have Razer ’s HyperSpeed tech in them, its wireless tech that it claims it has 25% faster click latency than other brands.

The new sensor sends data more concurrent with polling rate, so that the system can more accurately track the cursor coordinates, dubbed "Motion Sync." The HyperSpeed Wireless technology has better-optimized Adaptive Frequency Technology to sustain a faster connection and to significantly cut the lag in communication between the mouse and the computer. And it claims the same 100-hour (without lighting) battery life.

Optical switches respond more quickly than mechanical ones and are less subject to registering unwanted clicks, and (theoretically) experience less wear and tear than mechanical ones. They do feel a little less stiff than those on Razer's other mice, without sacrificing the satisfying (or loud, depending upon your point of view) click.

The result should align what you’re hearing with what is on the screen. Razer claims that its earbuds utilize a customized version of Bluetooth 5.0 to allow this feature to work and to preserve audio quality and battery life in the low-latency mode. To turn it on, just tap three times on the earbud.

Like the Viper Ultimate, the Basilisk Ultimate has the smoother polytetrafluoroethylene feet that I liked on the Viper. It supports all the same fine-tuning as well, such as the New Smart Tracking technology, which lets the mouse recognize different surfaces and apply presets -- or let you manually specify -- liftoff and landing distances.

Both are available now. The Basilisk Ultimate is $170 with the dock or $150 by itself. (The dock is $50 if you don't get the bundle.) The Basilisk X HyperSpeed is $60.

Razer's latest wireless mice promise low-lag gaming from $60 .
Razer is expanding its Basilisk mouse family with a pair of models that aim to make low-latency wireless mice both more accessible and more powerful. The most interesting model may be the affordable option, the six-button Basilisk X HyperSpeed (above). It packs a 16,000DPI sensor, Bluetooth support and its namesake low-lag HyperSpeed wireless (when you use a 2.4GHz USB dongle) for a reasonable $60. You may save money on batteries, too, as one AA cell will deliver about 12 days of use on 2.4GHz, or 19 days on Bluetooth.The Basilisk Ultimate (below), meanwhile, is the spare-no-expense option.
