Razer gaming tablet now available; renamed from Fiona to Edge


A year since it was announced, Razer have released their gaming tablet with handles. The Edge (formerly called ‘Project Fiona’) comes in two flavours and you’ll likely want to think hard about putting money on the table once you look through them.

So, according to Joystiq, there are two versions of the gaming tablet available, imaginatively titled’Standard’ and ‘Pro’. We’ll be going with Stan and Pete.

Stan comes with anIntel i5 processor, anNVIDIA GT640M LE GPU, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 64 GB SSD, which should make it exceptionally nippy, though with only 64GB hard drive space on hand you will likely fill that up fast.

Pete’s a little better at everything, as he’s got ani7 processor, NVIDIA GT640M LE GPU, 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 128 GB or 256 GB SSD.

However, despite all that power in the machines the benchmark game Razer have gone with is Dishonored. Apparently, Pete will run it at 59 fps, which is obviously lovely but one of the things Jeremy and Paul brought up in their discussion about the game is that, whilestylisticallylovely, it’s not exactly pushing the envelope on technical requirements. So it’s difficult to say exactly how capable this machine is, this machine that costs$1,300.

Stan is available to buy already and it’s going for $1,000.
