Razer has a new hardware on which gamers and fans could look up buying soon – a gaming monitor.
The Razer Raptor is a 27-inch WQHD edge-to-edge IPS panel with an only 2.3mm thick bezels and a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution. It has AMD’s FreeSync technology which promises to deliver 1ms of response time with Motion Blur reduction alongside its 144hz refresh rate.
Unfortunately, it does not support Nvidia’s G-Sync technology, yet.
Design-wise, the Raptor comes with a sleek, adjustable body that can be tilted backward by up to 90-degrees, as well as CNC-milled channels for Razer’s bundled flat cables which would help cable management and gives an aesthetic boost by up to at least a hundred percent.
The Raptor could have its brightness peak at around 420 nits (concept), as Razer claims. They also touted HDR support (although they haven’t specified which standard), as well as 95-percent DCI-P3 wide color gamut.
The monitor can be connected with your gaming desktop or smart TV using either the HDMI port, DisplayPort, USB Type-C, and two USB Type-A 3.1 ports. The USB Type-C port also includes power delivery to let you charge any of your lower wattage devices.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Razer product without Chroma. The base sports some Chroma-enabled LED strips that can be customized and controlled via Razer’s Synapse application.
According to Razer, what they’re showcasing at CES is an early-design-phase model (meaning that the final product may vary in design and specifications), though the company has plans to bring the Raptor into production later this year. The monitor will be available with a price tag of $699.99.
