Razer, the world’s leading high-end precision gaming brand is now showcasing the Razer Switchblade concept device running some of the most popular video games of today.  Working together with Intel, the Razer Switchblade concept is the world’s first device to use the Intel® Atom™ processor Z690 running at 1.70 GHz.

This iteration of the Intel Atom processor is capable of running games at a higher level of performance with its faster clock speed; a 13 percent boost over previous models*.

 

 

 

Razer has also already announced key Chinese independent software vendors such as Tencent and ChangYou who have pledged to support game optimization for the Switchblade User Interface.

“Intel is very excited to be working closely with Razer on the next generation of mobile handheld PC gaming,” said Brad Graff, consumer marketing director, Netbook and Tablet Group, Intel.  “The Razer Switchblade concept takes advantage of the Intel Atom processor, providing the performance needed to run 3D PC games in a small and light form factor to enable mobile gaming at significantly less power than a traditional laptop.”

“PC gaming on a truly mobile platform has not been possible before the Razer Switchblade,” said Min-Liang Tan, CEO and Creative Director, Razer.  “Our work with Intel allowed us to not only optimize the performance of the hardware on this concept device, but also lay the foundation for future products that will fully utilize the innovative technologies first developed on the Razer Switchblade concept.”
