It's a self-proclaimed "gaming nerve centre.
Razer has announced Razer Cortex, a free app through which gamers can find game bargains, launch games while purportedly boosting computer performance, back up save games, and record in-game footage.
Razer Cortex: Deals is being touted as the cornerstone of the app, offering a price comparison engine to help gamers keep up-to-date with price drops across stores such as Amazon.com, GameStop, GOG, Green Man Gaming, Steam, and Origin, with "more to come." Players can also create wish lists, which allows them to receive notifications whenever a game on their list is discounted. Razer Cortex: Deals can also suggest other games users might enjoy based on their previous gaming activity.
Other features include a screen capture gallery, a save file backup function, and a "game booster" that claims to improve your gaming PC's performance.
A two-week-long early access event is being held from today up till Razer Cortex's launch on September 10. Anyone with a Razer ID can sign up for the chance to test server performance prior to launch.
Currently, Razer Cortex is only scanning for price deals within the US region; its reach will expand to other regions after launch.
Razer is primarily known for gaming accessories, such as its Kraken series of headsets; it recently launched its Razer Nabu smartband for $1.
