At CES 2023, Razer continued to demonstrate their industry-leading innovation with these exciting products and concepts:

  • Razer Edge, the Ultimate Android Gaming Handheld – Developed with a 6.8” AMOLED display and 2400×1080 FHD+ resolution that boasts a 144Hz refresh rate, the Razer Edge is ideal for an always-connected mobile gaming experience. The handheld is the first device powered and developed exclusively for the latest Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 Gaming Platform, and is purpose-built with active cooling for long gaming sessions playing top AAA titles and native games on the go without having to compromise performance.
  • Razer Blade 16, Bigger. Better. Still the Best – Within the iconic machined aluminum chassis, the Blade 16 pushes performance and portability further than ever, with the world’s first 16-inch HDR-capable dual-mode mini-LED display that boasts 1000 nits peak brightness and less than 3ms response time with an ultra-smooth 240Hz refresh rate in native FHD+.[1]
  • Razer Blade 18, the ultimate desktop replacement – Boasting a massive 18” QHD+ 240Hz high refresh rate display, NVIDIA®’s next-generation RTX™ 40 series graphics processors running up to 175W TGP, upgradeable DDR5 5600MHz memory, a THX spatial audio 6-speaker array, and more, this is Razer’s most powerful laptop ever.
  • Razer Leviathan V2 Pro, the World’s First Beamforming Soundbar with Head-Tracking AI – Designed to deliver immersive 3D audio thanks to the integrated IR camera that detects the user’s position, allowing the soundbar to adapt the audio beams to the listener’s positioning in real-time, ensuring that they are always in the sweet spot for the best audio experience while gaming.
  • Razer Kiyo Pro Ultra, featuring the largest sensor ever in a webcam – designed to offer users DSLR-level detail and clarity with plug-and-play simplicity in the most powerful webcam from Razer so far.
