Android TV devices have left a lot to be desired so far. Back at CES Razer showed off a device that should finally do justice to Android TV. The Razer Forge TV is a beast of a set-top box, and you can pre-order it right now from Amazon. Razer is typically known for their gaming products, which is precisely what makes this device so great.
Razer calls the Forge TV a “micro-console. It glows with an intriguing green light as it sits below your TV. What sets this device apart from other Android TV devices are the specs. It’s packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and 2GB of RAM. Those beefy specs translate to a very smooth user interface experience, as well as ample power to run apps and intensive Android games. Other specs include WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, an ethernet port, 16GB of internal storage, HDMI port on the back supports up to 1080p sets, and a USB port.
The gamepad, called Serval, isn’t the most revolutionary thing we’ve ever seen, but you’ll be able to play games in a natural, comfortable way. The ability to attach up to 4 controllers at a time will make it quite the nice inexpensive gaming console for a family that doesn’t want to spend money on an Xbox One or PS4. Head on over to Amazon to pre-order the box and controller combo for $149.
