In its effort to dominate the gaming market, Razer is adding the new 27-inch Raptor display to its line of products. With the Raptor, you can now purchase every piece of your gaming setup from Razer, from headphones to mouse and keyboard. This is Razer’s first step into the standalone display market.
At first look, the Raptor shines with its sleek design. With an all aluminium design, It’s very much reminiscent of other Razer products, but comes with neat features that are specifically geared for gamers, such as its easy to use cable management system, for which the cables will comes in the box. The display rotates 90 degrees to the back to allow you easy access to all the ports, and from the back the cables look like they are flowing out of the display. These cables include HDMI, Displayport, USB-C and USB-A. The front of the display is also very 2019 with razor thin bezels, and of course, the Razor signature of Chroma compatible LED lights.
As for the specs, the 27-inch monitor has a resolution of 2560×1440 QHD, with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response rate (with motion blur reduction, it drops to 7ms with normal tasks). The display reaches a brightness of 420 nits and supports HDR. It comes with support for AMD’s FreeSync, but unfortunately, not Nvidia’s G-Sync.
In order to fit into their line of products, the new display supports screen mirroring for the Razer Phone 2, through a USB-C connection, which will allow you to use your phone with a full screen, mouse and keyboard. The display also supports picture in picture with multiple inputs, so you can view your PC and smartphone through the display at the same time.
The Razer Raptor will be available for sale later this year for $699.99, and you can sign up for a notification from Razor right now.
