With all the buzz going on at CES 2023, Razer has jumped on the train and showcased innovative technologies for all the attendees to get exclusive first peeks at. Let’s browse through what they have to offer.
Razer Edge and Edge 5G
Packing a 6.8″ AMOLED display with 2400×1080 FHD+ resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate, the Razer Edge is the first device to be powered by the latest Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 Gaming Platform. It is designed with active cooling for lengthy gaming sessions while playing heavy-loaded games on the go without compromising performance.
Next up is Project Carol, a head cushion with amazing near-field surround sound that delivers clear, crisp audio, paired with 7.1 surround sound that brings gamers into a new realm of audio and tactile immersion. Powered by Razer HyperSense technology, the cushion converts game sounds into haptic feedback that make gamers feel like they are actually in the game themselves.
Natively supported on PC, Project Carol is tailored to fit all gaming chairs, such as Razer’s iconic Iskur and Enki series with adjustable straps. It can also provide up to 8 hours of gaming when connected over 2.4 GHz wireless before requiring a charge.

Following that are the latest Blade 16 and Blade 18, both of which adopt the latest 13th generation Intel Core i9 HX chipset, NVIDIA RTX 40 series graphics processors with up to 175W TGP, as well as upgradeable DDR5 5600MHz memory.
The Blade 16 boasts a 16-inch HDR-capable dual-mode mini-LED display that offers 1000 nits peak brightness and a response time of less than 3ms. Thanks to the dual native mode switching, users can seamlessly pick between Creator and Gamer modes to their liking. The Creator mode supports UHD+ native resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate, while the Gamer mode offers an ultra-smooth 240Hz refresh rate in native FHD+.
On the other hand, the Blade 18 comes with an 18-inch QHD+ 240Hz high refresh rate display that features perfect color accuracy, sharp resolution, and speedy responsiveness. What’s more, it has a 5MP camera, a THX spatial audio 6-speaker array, upgradeable components, complete connectivity, and also high-efficient vapor chamber cooling.
Razer Leviathan V2 Pro
Powered by THX Spatial Audio and Audioscenic, the Leviathan V2 Pro is the first ever beamforming soundbar for desktops with head-tracking AI.
With an inbuilt IR camera that detects users’ positions, the Leviathan V2 Pro combines beamforming surround sound with head-tracking AI technology to deliver immersive 3D audio. In addition, the 3D audio can be enjoyed in THX Spatial Audio Virtual Headset mode which gives pinpoint positional audio, or THX Spatial Audio Virtual Speakers mode which provides a wide, room-filling soundstage.
Razer Kiyo Pro Ultra
The Kiyo Pro Ultra boasts a large Sony 1/1.2″ STARVIS 2 sensor with a 2.9 μm pixel size and a huge F/1.7 aperture lens to capture clearer images with more detail and light. This outstanding image fidelity is maintained via a processor that can convert raw 4K 30 FPS or 1080P 60 FPS footage into uncompressed 4K 24 FPS, 1440p 30 FPS, or 1080p 60 FPS directly into your stream.
VR peripherals designed for Meta Quest 2
Last on the list are the two new VR accessories designed to extend VR gameplay and increase comfort for Meta Quest 2: the Razer Adjustable Head Strap System and the Razer Facial Interface.
The Adjustable Head Strap System is made with high-performance nylon material that provides reliability, comfort, and durability while the optimized weight distribution allows for more balance during active gameplay.
As for the Facial Interface, it is built with ultra-thin textured membranes and hypoallergenic materials that alleviate facial pressure and reduction of skin irritation. The interface also eliminates light while still allowing airflow, therefore gamers can play without compromising immersion.
