Razer fans should be thrilled with this year’s slew of products and announced at CES 2019. The company finally enters the gaming monitor scene with their 27-inch monitor concept, the Razer Raptor.
The Razer Raptor will offer an ultra-wide viewing angle with a WQHD (2560×1440) IPS edge-to-edge panel with 2.3mm thin bezels. It will support AMD Radeon’s FreeSync technology for fast response times and Motion Blur Reduction, along with a 144Hz refresh rate. It will support HDR content with a 95 percent DCI-P3 wide color gamut.
