CES 2012: Razer Draws First Blood With PC Gaming Tablet, Project Fiona

[pullquote_left]Project Fiona will run full-fledged PC games that have never run on a tablet form factor before until today[/pullquote_left]The power of Intel’s 3rd generation i7 processor, in a tablet. That is the power behind Razer’s latest eye-popper dubbed Project Fiona. The writing on the wall is that this could quite possibly be the most powerful tablet pc known to consumers. Razer intends to have native PC games running on the tablet; “Instead of relying on developers to work on a suite of brand new applications for Project Fiona, many PC games today run natively on the tablet concept without the need to be ported, optimized, or developed from scratch.”

“While multi-touch screens have become the de facto user interface for tablets, they are not the right interface for serious PC gaming,” said Min-Liang Tan, CEO, Razer. “The user interface we have designed for Project Fiona allows all existing PC games to be played right out of the box and also provides game developers new opportunities as they develop next-gen games on a highly-intuitive platform. Both developers and gamers are going to love the new user interface that combines the best of a gamepad, multi-touch screen and accelerometers for an all-new gaming experience on-the-go.”

“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,” said Brad Graff, Director of Partner Marketing, Netbook & Tablet Group, Intel.Along with the game controllers, Project Fiona is also designed with ultra-precise accelerometers and a highly sensitive multi-touch screen.  This provides game developers with new game experiential opportunities to develop around the hybrid game control experience offered by Project Fiona.  It also ensures current-generation PC games run on the tablet concept, as well as any existing games optimized for the touchscreen interface of a tablet.

With the audio power delivered by THX we can also expect the tablet to sound phenomenal. “Video games, music and entertainment that previously were mainly enjoyed within the home can now be enjoyed anywhere through tablets such as the Razer Concept PC Gaming Tablet,” said Chris Golson, Senior Director, Business Development, THX.

Quite simply put this could be the best damned tablet money can buy.
