Razer have been highlighting a new device at CES this year, a gaming tablet powered by Intel’s Core i7 processor. The ‘Project Fiona’ tablet has been designed to play the most popular PC games with an “intuitive control setup for a phenomenal on-the-go gaming experience.” Thanks to a pairing with Intel, this tablet is set to redefine the mobile gaming sector.
Tomshardware have a report on the device and we think it looks great, but we would assume battery life might be a problem with such high powered internals.
Brad Graff, Director of Partner Marketing at Intel’s Netbook and Tablet group said “Project Fiona’s combination of high performance Intel-based gaming hardware and innovative tablet design is specifically focused for PC gamers. It will unleash the PC gamer to play their existing and future high-end games in one of the most exciting new form factors – a tablet.”
Min Liang Tan, CEO of Razer added “While multi-touch screens have become the de facto user interface for tablets, they are not the right interface for serious PC gaming. The user interface we have designed for Project Fiona allows all existing PC games to be played right out of the box and also provides game developers new opportunities as they develop next-gen games on a highly-intuitive platform. Both developers and gamers are going to love the new user interface that combines the best of a gamepad, multi-touch screen and accelerometers for an all-new gaming experience on-the-go.”
Kitguru says: No information on the cost, but we would expect it will not be priced in the budget sector.
