One of the attractions at the International Consumer Electronics Show or CES has been the Project  Fiona or more formally Razer Edge concept tablet.  Using a 10.1 inch, 1280×800 display, this gaming tablet runs on an Intel Core i7 processor to provide an immersive gaming experience.

Razer says a multitude of top immersive action, racing and first-person shooter games, will run on its Project Fiona tablet in Windows 8.  This illustrates the gaming potential of the OS platform on a cutting edge gaming device.


Rich Brown of CNET reports;

Fiona looks to be the first true Windows 8 gaming tablet. For its specs, Razer intends to use a third-generation (aka Ivy Bridge) Intel Core i7 CPU, along with a solid-state drive (SSD). Razer reps here at CES 2012 were circumspect when I asked about the graphics chip in Fiona. CEO Min-Liang Tan said he wanted to highlight Ivy Bridge and Windows 8 gaming, although he at least acknowledged the possibility of a discrete graphics chip from AMD or Nvidia.

The Razer features full force feedback in its gaming controllers so whether it is weapons recoil, bumps in the road or a clash of swords, you’ll feel it. It features Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound support and a multi-touch screen that can be used for generalized computing in Windows 8.

The Razer Edge tablet supports WiFi 802.11 b/g/n as well as Bluetooth 3.0.
