CES 2019: Razer is finally launching its own gaming monitor

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

Right now, the Razer Raptor monitor is only slated for release in the United States and Canada in 2019, with an MSRP of $699.99.

It was perhaps inevitable that Razer would add yet another gaming-focused peripheral to its ever-growing lineup, so it's not all that surprising to see the Razer Raptor 27, the company's first desktop monitor, emerge. "This Chroma-enabled gaming display features a 27" IPS panel with a 4ms response time (1ms with Motion Blur Reduction), support for AMD's FreeSync technology, and an innovative cable management system that is unlike anything I've seen before on a monitor, gaming or otherwise. The panel runs at 2560 x 1440 resolution (WQHD), and has a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz. It also supports HDR content with a maximum brightness of 420 nits. And as you would imagine from the company, this is no half-measure monitor. The panel includes a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and supports 95 percent of the DCI-P3 colour gamut. And, of course, the bottom of the monitor stand will be lit to death with Chroma lighting.

Around back, Razer has included channels to route cables, and a company rep told us flat cables will come with the monitor in the box.

On top of that, the Razer Raptor has a height-adjustable stand that also folds 90 degrees to give you easy access to the ports - one HDMI 2.0 port, one DisplayPort 1.4, one USB-C port (supports DP1.4) and two USB 3.0 ports. It also provides a nice, wide base for any figurines you might want to display below the monitor.

Connectivity options include HDMI, DisplayPort, USB Type-C with charging capabilities, and two USB A 3.1 ports. Razer said in its materials that these displays are "being evaluated for the Razer Blade 15 in the future".

The Razer Raptor gaming monitor will be available later this year in the USA and Canada with an expected retail price of $699.99. Since this is still an early design model, some changes could be made before launch.
