    Razer, the leading lifestyle brand for gamers, announced today its all-new 27-inch gaming monitor concept, the Razer Raptor. The desktop screen will be 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 realized. We have decided to tackle this space on our own and are very excited to expand our presence to include desktop displays.”

    E-Sports Ready Display
    The Razer Raptor will deliver ultra-wide viewing angles with its custom-calibrated WQHD (2560×1440) 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 display satisfies the most demanding esports and performance enthusiasts insisting on pixel-perfect visual outputs with high refresh rates and low response times for competition at the highest levels.

    The Razer Raptor will display vibrant colors, with its 95 percent DCI-P3 wide color gamut and support for HDR content, providing deep blacks for truly immersive viewing experiences. Color profiles will be programmed into the monitor to address gamer and prosumer demands for optimized gaming, movie and productivity settings.

    Precision Crafted Design
    Razer’s precision-crafted, matte-black design features a forged aluminum base. Its backplate 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 customized through the Razer Synapse 3 application to synchronize 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.

    Extended Connectivity
    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.

    The Razer Raptor aims to increase the productivity of users with picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture input capabilities allowing for multiple inputs to be simultaneously displayed. The USB-C port also includes power delivery to allow for lower wattage devices to be charged while connected to the monitor.

    The new Razer Raptor gaming monitor will be priced at $699.99 MSRP and is scheduled to be available later this year from Razer.com in the U.S. and Canada.
