The world’s first gaming tablet is upon us! Razer, who are primarily known for their PC gaming devices, have dubbed the tablet “Project Fiona”.
The tablet which houses an Intel Quad Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor is essentially a Windows-based tablet with two prongs on the side that act as the controllers. Each prong has an analogue stick, four buttons, a trigger, and shoulder buttons.
It’s clear that the tablet will appeal any hardcore gamer, like me, who wouldn’t be seen dead poking at an iPad or touch-screen tablet. So how does it shape up? Read on for the Project Fiona Price and Specs.
Razer Project Fiona Specs
From the videos I’ve seen, this thing seems to run games like Skyrim and Assassin’s Creed Revelations on the highest settings extremely well, and here’s why:
- Intel Core i7 CPU (Ivy-Bridge)
- Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound (THX certified)
- 10.1-inch 1280×800 Resolution Display
- SSD Storage at 250GB – 500GB
- WiFi (802.11 b,g,n)
- Bluetooth 3.0
- 3-Axis Gyro, Accelerometer, and Magnetometer
- Force Feedback
- 4GB – 8GB DDR3 RAM
There is a slight compromise though, its size. Due to the prongs on the side, it does make Project Fiona a little on the large side, which doesn’t deter me, but it might be something you’d want to consider.
Razer Project Fiona Price And Release Date
As Project Fiona wont be released until the last quarter of 2012, an official price has yet to be announced. However, Razer have said that they will price it at under $1,000 (£650). Razor have been known to overprice some of their products, but it should be safe to assume that they’ll try attempt to compete with the mid-range gaming latops.
