Razer Launches Raptor 27, the First THX Certified PC Monitor

Razer has announced a new 27-inch PC monitor that it says is the first in the industry to receive THX certification. It features a Quad HD (1440p) monitor with a 165Hz refresh rate, a one-millisecond response time, and covers 95% of the DCI-P3 color gamut.

Razer says that this new monitor keeps the same design as its predecessor with a matte-black finish and forced aluminum base as well as a “high-end” textured fabric back and built-in cable management channels. As expected for a monitor made by a company primarily known for gaming, it also features Razer Chrome RGB lighting that can display up to 16.8 million colors with a variety of lighting effects. That lighting can be synchronized with other Synapse 3 compatible devices for a computing space with a connected and cohesive vibe. Synapse 3 can also be used to control the Raptor 27’s settings like color, contrast, and brightness.

While the aluminum base will appeal to some, Razer is also offering a Raptor VESA adapter which is sold separately but is designed to fit all Raptor models. It adds a VESA compatible mounting plate to the rear of the monitor and replaces the fitted base unit to allow the monitor to mount to a stand or bracket of the user’s choice.

The monitor uses a 165Hz wide-angle IPS display at Quad HD resolution — 1440p or 2560×1440 pixels — with support for both AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-Sync adaptive synchronization technology. As far as color accuracy is concerned, the Raptor 27 promises to cover 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut and supports HDR400 capability. Razer has not published how much of the sRGB color gamut it covers or what its maximum brightness is, though HDR400 requires it to at least hit 400 nits of peak brightness.

THX certification requires a display to undergo more than 400 individual tests to ensure color, tone, and images are displayed “as their creators intended.” To date, THX has not certified any other PC monitors, though last year TCL’s television line was the first to feature THX certification for its game mode.

The Razer Raptor is available for pre-order immediately from Razer.com for $800. No anticipated delivery date was provided at the time of publication.

The Razer Blade 14 is a Powerhouse Laptop with an Impressive Display

Razer has announced that after a three-year hiatus, it has brought back its powerhouse 14-inch laptop that packs raw computing capability and display performance into an extremely thin chassis. It is also the first Razer Blade ever to feature an AMD processor, the 8-core Ryzen 9 5900HX.

Razer touts the Razer Blade 14 as a “14-inch powerhouse” of a laptop that combines that AMD processor with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU and maximum 1440p Quad HD 165Hz display into a thin body that measures just 0.66 x 8.66 x 12.59 inches. Razer says this is the world’s smallest 14-inch gaming laptop currently available.

And while the Razer Blade 14 is marketed primarily as a gaming device — hence its announcement at E3 and the fact it offers “one of a king” per-key Razer Chroma RGB backlighting — it has several features that make it a compelling buy for photographers and videographers as well.

The Razer Blade 14 marks the “revival” of the laptop line through a new partnership with AMD, which the company says culminates in a powerful laptop that takes advantage of the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX 8-core, 16-thread processor that has a max boost clock of up to 4.6GHz to “quickly dispatch dense workloads.” Razer specifically says that it will be able to reduce latency when it comes to gaming, but also notes that it will be able to tackle demanding professional workloads extremely quickly. The company also claims that it can perform at a top-tier level while still offering up to 12 hours of battery life.

The laptop can be outfitted with a choice of options from the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 series laptop GPUs: 3060, 3070, and 3080.

While raw computing power is important for quickly processing photos and videos, the quality of the display is arguably more important. To that end, the Blade 14 offers what Razer is calling the fastest 14-inch displays on the market, which offers the choice between a Full HD 144Hz or a Quad HD 165Hz IPS display. Photographers are likely to lean for the higher resolution display, but Razer promises the Full HD model will hit up to 100 percent of sRGB and the 1440p model can hit up to 100 percent of DCI-P3 and both come from the factory custom calibrated.

The Razer Blade 14 also ships with a 720p webcam, an IR sensor for login, and dual THX Spatial Audio speakers on either side of the keyboard. It also includes two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports with lower power delivery (for charging in a pinch) and two USB 3.2 Gen 2 type-A ports for connecting “legacy” items. It also has an HDMI 2.1 port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Razer Blade 14 is available immediately from Razer.com and starts at $1,800 for the base RTX 3060 and Full HD display model and up to $2,800 for the fully-kitted RTX 3080 and Quad HD display version.
