Razer is expanding its hardware lineup with the release of the Razer Raptor, a 27-inch ultra-wide gaming monitor. The monitor is Razer’s first gaming monitor. The Razer Raptor has thin bezels, support for AMD Radeon FreeSync, and has a wide color gamut. The monitor is available for $700 starting today.
The Razer Raptor has a 2560×1440 IPS display with small, 2.3mm bezels around the entire screen. The monitor supports AMD Radeon Freesync, has a response time of 4ms with Overdrive and 1ms with Motion Blur reduction. The typical response time is 7ms. It has a refresh rate of 144Hz and a wide color gamut of 95 percent DCI-P3. It supports HDR and can reach a brightness of up to 420 Nits.
The monitor matches the design language of Razer’s other hardware. It features a matte-black aluminum design, and Razer Chroma-powered LED strips around the base. The monitor can tilt back up to 90 degrees to make it easy to access the device’s ports, which include an HDMI port, DisplayPort, USBC-C port with support for power delivery, and two USB-A 3.1 ports. Additionally, the backplate has fabric and metal. On the back of the monitor stand, there are milled channels that can be used to hide cables.
The Razer Raptor has multiple gaming modes, including FPS, racing, MMO mode, and streaming.
We got to see an “early-design-phase” model of the monitor earlier this year at CES. The final version is now available for $700.
