Razer Unveils Impressive New Raptor 27 Gaming Monitor
Peter Donnell / 11 months ago
Razer has a new addition to its multi-award-winning gaming monitors, the new Razer Raptor 27. It features a 165Hz display with a 1ms response time, as well as a resolution of (QHD) 2560 x 1440 pixels. The panel is a wide-angle IPS. This is backed up by both AMD FreeSync Premium and Nvidia G-Sync ensuring ultra-smooth gameplay regardless of what hardware you’re running.

However, it’s the quality of the panel that really impresses, as the Razer Raptor 27 is the world’s first PC monitor to achieve THX Certification, “undergoing more than 400 individual tests to ensure colour, tone and images are displayed as their creators intended, for a stunning picture quality and level of detail” and that does sound impressive. However, I will point out that Razer owns THX, so of course they’re the first one haha. Still, with the monitor promising deep black levels, a staggering 95 percent DCI-P3 wide colour gamut and HDR400 capability, I don’t doubt that it’s going to be pretty damn impressive.
What Razer Had to Say
“The monitor retains the popular design of its predecessor with an elegant matte-black finish to the forged aluminium base, a high-end textured fabric back and built-in cable management channels running along the backside. To finish the look, the Raptor 27 features Razer Chroma RGB lighting, for up to 16.8 million colors and a variety of lighting effects, which can be synchronized with other Synapse 3 compatible devices. For an enhanced experience, users can also control the Raptor 27’s settings such as color, contrast and brightness directly through the Razer Synapse 3 software.”
Aside from a kick-ass panel and loads of RGB, what else do you get? There will be a Raptor VESA adapter sold separately, which is designed to fit all Raptor models. This is an ultra-slim mount that adds a VESA compatible mounting plate to the rear of the Raptor monitor, replacing the fitted base unit and allowing users to mount the Raptor on a VESA compatible stand or bracket of their choice.
