Razer has announced today its all-new 27 inch gaming monitor concept, the Razer Raptor. The desktop screen was unveiled at CES 2019 as an early-design-phase model, with production units slated for release later this year.
Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan says, “Razer has worked alongside partners in the past to bring the Razer experience to monitors, but the full potential was never fully realised. We have decided to tackle this space on our own and are very excited to expand our presence to include desktop displays.”
ESPORTS READY DISPLAY
The Razer Raptor will deliver ultra-wide viewing angles with its custom-calibrated WQHD (2560x1440) IPS edge-to-edge panel with thin 2.3 mm bezels. The monitor will feature AMD Radeon™ FreeSync™ adaptive sync technology with fast response times featuring 1 ms Motion Blur reduction and a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz, ensuring fluid frames while gaming.
The Razer Raptor will display vibrant colours, with its 95 percent DCI-P3 wide colour gamut and support for HDR content, providing deep blacks for truly immersive viewing experiences. Colour profiles will be programmed into the monitor to address gamer and prosumer demands for optimised gaming, movie and productivity settings.
PRECISION CRAFTED DESIGN
Razer’s precision-crafted, matte-black design features a forged aluminium base. Its back-plate is finished with a blend of fabric and metal to add a touch of elegance. Razer Chroma-powered LED strips illuminate the monitor’s base, which can be customised through the Razer Synapse 3 application to synchronise with other Razer Chroma-enabled hardware.
Designed with easy cable management in mind, the height adjustable monitor is also capable of tilting backwards up to 90 degrees for easy I/O ports access. Built-in CNC milled channels line the back of the monitor base to allow users to easily hide the five unique Razer green performance cables included with the display, creating a clean battle station setup.
The Razer Raptor will offer a variety of input ports for connectivity for various devices. This includes 1 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, 1 x USB-C which includes power delivery, and 2 x USB-A 3.1 ports.
