Razer introduces the 27-inch Raptor, its first gaming monitor

Razer makes plenty of gaming-related hardware and accessories, but until now, the company didn't actually offer its own gaming monitor. That's changed today with the launch of the Razer Raptor, a 27-inch IPS display with a 144Hz refresh rate and minimal bezels that offers some interesting features for gamers.

The Razer Raptor is a QHD (2560x1440) display, and in addition to the fast refresh rate, it has a 1ms response time and Ultra Low Motion Blur. It covers 95% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, so color accuracy should be pretty good, and it's also certified for HDR400, hitting up to 420 nits of brightness. Naturally, it also supports adaptive sync through AMD's FreeSync technology, with G-Sync Compatible certification also on board - you'll want to check this table to know about the different levels of Nvidia's G-Sync certification.

In terms of connectivity, the Razer Raptor is also pretty versatile, with an HDMI 2.0b port, a DisplayPort 1.4 connector, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type-A) ports, and a USB Type-C connector with a DisplayPort 1.4 signal. Accessing all those ports should be fairly easy, with the monitor rotating 90 degrees on its stand to give access to the ports. There's also a cable management slot on the stand, so you can plug in all the cables through there. And, of course, there's Chroma lighting on the base of the stand.

The Razer Raptor is now available to pre-order from Razer's website, and it costs $699.99. It'll start shipping on November 11.
