Razer from Razerzone.com are now listing what they claim to be the worlds first tablet designed for PC gamers. The Razer Edge Pro is a new tablet build using Intel chips and running Windows 8 that is really aimed at getting PC gamers onto a Tablet.
Running a 3rd generation Intel Core i5 this should give it some good processing power to handle the tasks at had, coupled with a nVidia GeForce graphics series card with Optimus technology (sie says its a nVidia GT 640M LE with 1GB DDR3). Display is a 10.1″ high definition multi-touch IPS display capable of 1366×768 – so should be able to handle 720p. But what about memory and storage, well specs say it will have 4GB of DDR3 and a 65GB SSD.
There are extras you can buy for it including keyboard, docking station where you can plug in things like joypads and an unusual gamepad controler that the entire tablet fits into with handles either side with a small joypad and buttons. This alone will make it a great tool for portable windows game playing (kind of like a portable Steam game console – see yesterday story for a reference on that console). Priced on there site at the moment at $999 or an Intel Core i7 version (comes with 8GB ram) also listed at $1299.99 its on the most expensive side of table prices. And with a note saying that accessories including Gamepad controllers Keyboard dock etc being sold separate this maybe priced too high for your average gamers?
Still, this looks very interesting; though time will tell if it sells or not.
