Razer Announces Forge TV, The PC Game Streaming Android Box

Razer has had a pretty cool CES lineup this year. First they put out an open sourced VR heatset, called the OSVR, and now they have an Android-powered PC Game streaming device. Razer’s Forge TV is an Android powered box that allows you to stream virtually any PC Game at 1080P with minimal latency. In addition to PC Gaming, they’ve packed the device with some other cool features including access to the bulk of Android TV apps, Google Cast – which allows you to cast streams from your mobile device or computer to the device and control the playback – as well as a remote app with voice search, which is available on both iOS and Android.

The Forge TV is powered by pretty standard Android components: A quad-core Snapdragon 805 CPU clocked at 2.5Ghz, an Adreno 420 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage, WiFi AC, and Bluetooth 4.1. However, to distinguish itself from other PC Game streaming options, the Forge TV’s main feature,  called Cortex: Stream, allows you to stream any DirectX 9 or higher game at 1080P with minimal latency. Cortex: Stream is cross-hardware compatible with nVidia, AMD, and even your little integrated Intel graphics, which makes it significantly more appealing over the alternative nVidia streaming options.

The Razer Forge TV is set to be available Q1 of this year at a price-point of only $100 – $150 bundled with the Serval Controller.
