Razer today announced Synapse 2.0, which brings cloud storage of your gaming peripheral's settings. Onboard memory to remember macros, profiles, and key binds has become standard fair in the gaming world thanks to Razer, but now it's moving "to the cloud." What's the advantage of this? Well, really it's only the fact that you can use your settings with someone else's mouse, provided you have access to the internet. All you need to do is simply log in and your settings will be there. Normally you would have to bring your own mouse if you wanted your own settings, or else change them before you start gaming. Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, who is the president of Razer USA, said:

Razer Synapse 2.0 is a testament to our drive to continually innovate for the benefit of the gamer and end-user. Razer Synapse 2.0 gives gamers a convenient, single cloud-based platform to access, maintain, and store settings for all of their Razer devices. On-board memory, with its limited storage for user profiles, becomes obsolete when Razer Synapse 2.0 offers essentially unlimited space for all of your hardware settings.

It's going to be coming out with Razer's next generation of gaming peripherals, but no specific date was given. You can read the press release here.
