Following the official announcement of the Razer Edge gaming tablet – and the revelation of its pricing strategy – the developer of the hardware has revealed a new trailer showcasing its full functionality. The Razer Edge is launching this spring in North America and Europe, and will be available in two variations.
A full-feature PC and the most powerful tablet in the world, the Razer Edge has four modes specially designed for gamers and is able to run all PC games and applications. Razer let its community (and the PC gaming community as a whole) decide the end-game chipset, weight/thickness, features and even price for the Razer Edge, and hosted the initiative on its social media pages.
“When we decided to design a tablet from the ground up, we did it to create a phenomenal experience for mobile gamers. By combining the best of PC and console gaming with Windows 8, we’ve created a true gaming tablet,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. “Clearly, the critical acclaim and community support the Razer Edge has enjoyed suggests we hit the mark. Now, we get to celebrate the reality of what was formerly a dream with the audience for which this groundbreaking tablet was made.”
PC gamers ended up helping to design the most powerful tablet in the world today, the only system of its kind utilising technology from both Intel and NVIDIA. Powerful third generation Intel Core processors will help ensure even the most advanced, full-fledged PC games will function at full capacity, and NVIDIA GeForce graphics will offer striking visual clarity – a first for tablet gaming. By way of a true Windows 8 operating system with Intel architecture, the broadest array of today’s most popular PC games will run natively on the Razer Edge without the need to be ported, optimised or developed anew.
The Razer Edge and Razer Edge Pro tablets will be made available this spring, though a specific release date is yet to be announced. Electronic Theatrewill keep you updated with all the latest details on the Razer Edge tablet and other Windows 8 gaming devices.
