"As part of Razer's increasing desire to branch out from its core competency of keyboards, mice, and RGB LEDs, the company has taken to the CES 2019 event with a design for a 27" gaming-focused monitor dubbed the Razer Raptor.
It's a 27-inch 16:9 display with bezels that are only 2.3mm thick and surround an IPS panel with a resolution of 2560-by-1440.
But even if you couldn't care less about seeing the most lovely version of whatever 2019's Crysis is, the Razer Raptor is just a aesthetically pleasing monitor. Since this is still an early design model, some changes could be made before launch. Beyond that, it has a 1ms response time, 144Hz refresh rate and support for FreeSync- something that Nvidia GPU owners will be able to take advantage of in the future. The panel averages 420 nits of brightness, covers 95 percent of the DCI-P3 spectrum and has a 1000:1 contrast ratio. And, of course, the bottom of the monitor stand will be lit to death with Chroma lighting. Plus Razer Chroma base strips lets you light this thing up in all sorts of insane colors.
These ports include an HDMI 2.0a port, a DisplayPort (unspecified standard), a USB-C port that can be used to charge mobile devices and can be used as another DisplayPort, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, and a headphone jack. The monitor will ship with acid green flat cables for the back ports. It also features a single-body aluminum base outfitted with channels in the back for cable management, and can be tilted back 90 degrees in order to easily reach the cable inputs underneath. The Razer Raptor will sell for $699 and will be available at some point in 2019, though a firm date has not been released just yet.
Clemson redshirts and coaches at Media Day
I've had my doubts all season that Alabama was the clear-cut No. 1 team over Clemson, and this is the Tigers' chance to prove it. ESPN will have live broadcasts of the game on four of its channels, including its ESPN Megacast on ESPN.
Mack, Alabama upset No. 13 Kentucky 77-75 in SEC opener
Kentucky's offense in the second half was a train wreck, magnified by the lack of second-chance opportunities via the glass. The Tide also won the battle of the boards for the 12th time in 13 games, outrebounding the Wildcats 40-32 in the contest.
