RazerEdge

At Gamescom this year, we got to chat to Razer about the Edge Pro,  a ludicrously powerful handheld gaming device that’s part tablet, part PC and part console. The thing manages to cram a dual-core Intel i7 CPU, a 2GB Nvidia GT 640M and 8 gigs of ram in to something not very much bigger than two iPads duct-taped together.

Of course, all that technology in such a small space comes with a pretty hefty price tag. We have no local pricing just yet, but it’ll set you back $1300 in the US, which, admittedly, is a lot of money for a handheld gaming tablet. According to Razer, here’s why you’d want one.

What do you think? viable replacement for consoles or a rich-kid’s toy?

          It should read: First tablet designed to make console gamers feel as cool as PC gamers.

        Probably looking for her kevlar before getting into a flame war. Otherwise her stockings get all torn.

    All in all, a lovely piece of tech. Just not sure about the price tag?

    Would have been cheaper and better with AMD parts

      Some people just can’t handle the truth it seems.

    Love the idea of the thing. Watched Jim Sterling play Skyrim on it, was brilliant. Just don’t see it taking off…

    It was never a question of wanting the Razer Edge; it’s always been about the immensely poor Global distribution network for Blade Laptops, and tablets. If you’re not in Singapore or the US, good luck getting one easily. I would love to grab the 14″ Razer Blade and use it as my primary on road rig. Oh well.
