Razer Announced its first 27-inch gaming monitor, the Razer Raptor, following an unveiling of an early-design-phase model at this year’s CES 2019. Production units are slated to release later this year for $699.99 MSRP.
The Razer Raptor will feature custom calibrated WQHD (2560×1440) IPS Edge-to-Edge panel and AMD Radeon FreeSync adaptive sync technology with a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz and 1 millisecond motion blur reduction.
The monitor also includes input ports for one HDMI, one display port, one USB-C and two USB-A ports.
