Razer’s Project Fiona, PC gaming just evolved
Razer presented its latest gaming concept design in the International CES, which is currently held at Las Vegas, Nevada. As Matt Buchanan, a writer in gizmodo.com, would put it, “I just held the future of PC gaming in my hands”.
Project Fiona is a tablet created solely for PC gaming. You read that right, PC gaming. Razer worked with Intel to be able to utilize the power of its third generation Intel Core i7 processor in Project Fiona. Razer’s tablet will run PC games the way they’re meant to be. Essentially redefining portable gaming I might say.
What makes this a vastly superior tablet for gaming compared to other tablet devices? You don’t need to wait for your favourite PC games to be released/ported to Project Fiona, as it can run full pledged PC games right out of the box.
“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.” – Brad Graff, Director of Partner Marketing, Netbook & Tablet Group, Intel.
Fiona’s design will feature integrated dual game controllers with analog sticks, which runs gamepad-enabled PC games right out of the box. It’ll also feature accelerometers and a multi-touch screen, which will provide gamers and developers a box load of experimental opportunities with up and coming games.
The world won’t end in 2012, we still have this bad boy to look forward to.
