Razer Raptor Is the Company’s First Gaming Monitor – 27″ WQHD@144Hz, HDR and FreeSync Support
The Razer Raptor is the company’s first gaming monitor. Announced a few hours ago at CES 2019, it’s a 27-inch IPS display with WQHD (1440p) resolution, up to 144Hz refresh rate, support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and AMD FreeSync.
Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said:
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.
Being a Razer product, the Razer Raptor features built-in Chroma-powered LED strips that illuminate the base of the display and can be tweaked via Razer Synapse to synchronize with other Razer Chroma hardware, in case you’ve got any.
It’s also designed for easy cable management in mind, allowing users to hide the cables effortlessly for a tidied up desk. The Razer Raptor is planned to be available later this year in the United States and Canada via Razer.com and will be priced $699.99.
