The Razer Raptor is a 27-inch gaming monitor and marks the first time that the hardware company has stepped into the standalone display space. But there’s an additional twist here: the Raptor isn’t just a cool CES prototype. It’s also going to be a real product. Razer is planning to ship the Raptor later this year for $699.99.
As for the actual display, it’s in line with other top gaming monitors: it has a 27-inch screen with 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, and between a 1ms (with Motion Blur reduction) and 7ms (typical) response rate. The screen reaches a brightness of up to 420 nits, and it supports HDR (although Razer hasn’t specified which HDR standard, specifically). The one downside: there’s only support for AMD’s FreeSync tech, not Nvidia G-Sync.
