Razer reveals Blade 15 Advanced, Raptor gaming monitor at CES 2019

The Razer Raptor 27 will ship later this year for U.S. $700. Inside you'll find an Intel Core i7-8750H six-core processor, up to 64GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM, and up to a 512GB SSD.

The monitor is set to come with present 'gaming mode' settings which optimise the panel for first-person shooters, racing simulations, massively multiplayer online (MMO), and streaming use, though Razer hasn't shared how these differ. Alternatively, there's a 3820-by-2160 panel for 4K output and 100 percent Adobe RGB color support.

Razer didn't just reveal a refreshed Razer Blade 15 Advanced laptop with fresh Nvidia RTX laptop GPUs at CES 2019.

Razer is entering the gaming monitor market with its all-new 27-inch gaming monitor concept, the Razer Raptor.

The monitor is targeted at the gaming and esports space with its high-fidelity visuals paired with a fast refresh rate and response time. There's also HDR support and a number of pre-programmed color profiles available that optimize the output for gaming, movie watching, or productivity.

Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa now has most retweeted tweet ever
The post appeared to be in celebration of his website Zozotown making 10bn yen in sales over the Christmas and New Year period. A tweet posted just two days ago has become the most retweeted post on the platform of all time.

But it's the back design of the Razer Raptor that has caught my attention, with some awesome design work by the Razer team on the integrated cable management system and slide-up-and-down for screen height adjustment.

Connectivity options include HDMI, DisplayPort, USB Type-C with charging capabilities, and two USB A 3.1 ports. The stand also tilts backwards up to 90 degrees so you can more easily access the ports.

Another feature you'll find in the base of the Raptor is LED strips. It emits a rainbow glow under the stand, and you can configure it and/or sync the lighting with other Razer gear via Synapse 3 software.

That's a small change, but certainly a welcome one - it seems fiddling blindly with monitor cords or tipping your device on its side will be a thing of the past for Raptor 27 owners.
