Razer a dominant player in the PC peripherals market is looking to make their mark when it comes to monitors with their all-new Razer Raptor gaming monitor. Its a 27-inch display featuring an IPS panel with a resolution of 2560x1440. It comes with support for FreeSync and has a refresh rate of 144 Hz. Response times are listed as 7 ms typical and 4 ms with Overdrive. The contrast ratio is 1000:1 and the screen has a max brightness of 420 nits. It also offers 95% of the P3-D65 color gamut, and yes it has support for HDR. Connectivity consists of 1x HDMI 2.0, 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x USB Type-C with power delivery and 2x USB 3.0.

The design features a wide stand that offers excellent stability while also providing channels for cable routing giving the system a clean and unique appearance especially with those bright green cables. As expected of Razer the Raptor monitor also supports Chrome-powered lights in the base which will sync with the rest of Razer's Chrome gear including, mice, keyboards and even laptops and speakers. In regards to availability, no date has been set just yet; however, Razer said it would be made available later this year with an MSRP of $699.99.


Razer also showed off their updated Blade laptops which now feature NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 20-series laptop GPUs. Buyers will have a choice between the RTX 2060 6 GB, RTX 2070 Max-Q 8GB, and the RTX 2080 Max-Q 8 GB. To go with the graphics card upgrade, they also added a Windows Hello-compatible IR camera for facial recognition login. When it comes to displays, users have a choice between a 4K touchscreen or a 144 Hz 1080p offering. Meanwhile, they are testing two other options including a 1080p 240 Hz screen and a 4K OLED touchscreen. Availability of the new models equipped with RTX graphics is expected on January 29th with pricing between $2299 and $2999. Razer will still offer their base model with a GeForce GTX 1060 for $1599.

Wait, a monitor where you can actually access the connectors without disassembling your entire desk setup? That is certainly worth more of a premium than any amount of RGB LEDs.

True, another gimmick by "Razor" that bleeds 50% more of your wallet, motivated by the led at the monitor base, ROFL.
Don't forget the premium plastic cable holder!

Frankly, I'd prefer if they just included a bunch of velcro cable ties. But the full 90-degree screen tilt to access the connectors (from the front! without rotating the monitor!) still looks very handy.
