Project Fiona becomes Razer Edge, starts at $999, sans controller
- Updated: January 8, 2013
Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan has been dreaming about building a true PC gaming portable for years. He’s cooked up prototype clamshells, controller-toting tablets, and built two top of the line gaming laptops along the way — but now his dream is almost ready: the Razer Edge. Look familiar? It should. It’s been handled, teased and even redesigned at the behest of Razer’s social legions. It’s Project Fiona evolved. Hoping to keep pace with community feedback, Razer is kitting out the Edge with a 3rd gen Intel Core processor, a 10.1-inch 1,366 x 768 display, an NVIDIA GT640M LE GPU, 4-8GB of DDR3 RAM, USB 3.0 and a 64, 128 or 256GB SSD, depending on the SKU. Min translated the slate’s build into some digestible framerates: 59 fps in Dishonored, he told us, and 41 fps in DiRT Showdown. Sound intriguing? It gets better — the baseline 1.7Ghz Core i5 variant of the Edge will sell for $999 and the beefed up 1.9GHz Core i7 Pro model will run for $1299, keeping the device well below the community’s $1,300 to $1,500 price expectations. Even better, the whole shebang is going to be available in the first quarter of this year.
