The Razer Raptor 27 and Blade 14 will lead Razer’s hardware portfolio for the rest of the year.
Razer E3 2021 --fresh off of announcing its partnership with Nerd Street Gamers--has unveiled the latest in its ever-growing lineup of hardware offerings, including a 27-inch monitor and the newest version of its powerful gaming laptop.
The Raptor 27: Clever Girl
First up is the Raptor 27, a 27-inch PC monitor boasting a 165Hz refresh rate and 1-millisecond response time. The Raptor 27 is the world's first ever THX-certified PC monitor according to the press release, undergoing "more than 400 individual tests to ensure color, tone and images are displayed as their creators intended, for a stunning picture quality and level of detail."
The Raptor 27 will be available later this year for $799.99. An optional wall mount will also be available for $100.
Razer's New Laptop: A Cut Above
Next is the Razer Blade 14, the latest in the Blade line of gaming laptops. The Blade 14 is the first ever Blade laptop to feature an AMD processor, the 8-core AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX. The Blade 14 will also feature Nvidia 30-series graphics cards as well as a quad HD display capable of up to 156 Hz. All of this is contained in a 14-inch chassis, along with a keyboard highlighted by Razer's signature Chroma RGB and a dynamic audio output.
The Blade 14 will also use Razer's new charging technology, called the USB-C GaN Charger. GaN--or gallium nitrate--technology is a more eco-friendly method of charging devices, which results in more efficiency in its size and output, but also generates less heat when being used. The multi-port charger up to 130W of combined charging power between four ports, two USB-C and two USB-A.
