Razer Edge Windows 8 tablet runs Crysis 3 (video)
The majority of tablets on the market today, be they of the Android, iOS, or Windows breed, aren't meant to be used for hardcore gaming. This quite unusual specimen, however, is an exception. That's the Razer Edge you see in the video below, running a game that some won't even dare installing on most other Windows 8 tablets – Crysis 3.

One who is familiar with the title would instantly assume that the tablet used in the demonstration packs some serious punch, and they'd be right. The Razer Edge comes with a Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and NVIDIA GT640M LE graphics, while its "Pro" variant is equipped with a Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM. A neat feature you won't see on other Windows 8 tablets are the physical controls, which are an essential component of the gaming experience.

How do you get one of these? Well, just visit the Razer web page and pre-order the model that suits your needs. Just make sure your bank account can handle its $1000+ price tag.

@haseebzahid, read this It has the guts of a mid-range PC gaming laptophttp://liliputing.com/2013/02/razer-edge-windows-8-gaming-tablet-up-for-pre-order-march-1st.html ==> to play Crisis 3 Anandtech : The chances of this tablet getting very hot are pretty high, particularly in gaming situations. Thankfully, if you're using the Gamepad Controller, you won't be holding the back of the tablet anywayshttp://www.anandtech.com/show/6573/razers-edge-gaming-tablet-announcement-and-detailed-discussion @hiBreed, can your brain understand this

i don't think plugging it while playing heavy graphic games would be good for that device...the heat while playing it would be enough to damage the internals plus the heat while it is being charge while playing would be even worse...and i don't see any cooling fan on that device...

yeah, I'm sure half_21 knows more than the engineers who designed the system. Obviously, he knows more, so take his word, and don't buy this awesome device ;o)

Then what is the point of having a tablet if you are just going to plug it into the wall the whole time?

16. hiBreed

Posts: 90; Member since: May 29, 2012

And how do you know that? Sources please

Please read the comment I was replying to, that was the statement I was commenting on. He said "just plug the AC adaptor and you're ready." I was commenting why would you want to plug your tablet into the wall to play a game instead of just buying a desktop that could do the same thing? I wasn't saying whether the "30 minute battery" statement was true or false. I was just saying that if it was true, why would the solution just be plug in the tablet to play games instead of just buy a desktop to play games (considering this is going to be a $1000 which could buy you a very good gaming machine)? Also, since you are calling me out on sources, I do have one right here that states the battery life is about an hour with the regular battery pack while gaming. "We’re sitting at an hour of gaming on the internal battery and 2 hours with the extended pack". http://www.anandtech.com/show/6649/razer-edge-impressions-and-thoughts

Dr. Phil, please name for me a mobile device that can play games with cutting edge graphics and still have extended battery life. Chances are the battery life on this machine is fine, if you don't run it at max. The capability to have such power at your finger tips, even if it drains the battery when gaming, is still very cool...

How about you Angry Bird Android fans take a break, and play a game with real graphics for a change? Oh wait, you can't - because your Android based smartphones and tablets can't run anything that doesn't use 2d sprites ;o)

If this was an Android tablet, most ppl here would be like: "Wow! Now that's innovation!" But now that droids (android fans) saw something more powerful than the Google cr@p, its all criticism here. Droids are boring ppl, they do not recognize anything. TECHNILOGY MOVES ON you know. They wouldn't use components of a 486DX2 machine!
