Gaming company Razer announced the ability to use its Razer Game Booster to save game data and setting directly into the cloud-based Dropbox service.
Razer will include support for other cloud storage services when the feature is enabled for the full release. The Game Booster is able to maximize system performance, offering up more frames per second, when unnecessary processes are disabled to enhance game performance.
"We continually work to enhance the gaming experience for our community," said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO, in in a press statement. "There are few things that take the fun out of gaming more than lost game progress or disappearing settings. It is our hope to rid the world of such frustrations and help make sure that losing game info never happens again."
Razer continually pushes its product boundaries beyond just gaming peripherals, and offering a simple yet effective service like this could make a difference. Many gamers tweak game settings specifically for their own current PC setup, and trying to restore preferences after a game is reinstalled, for example, can be a daunting task.
