Razer’s Switchblade gaming device has first dibs on new Intel Atom Z690 procie


Razer’s Switchblade concept gaming device made quite a splash when it was unveiled back in January in CES. The concept device promises to deliver unparalleled mobile gaming experience without sacrificing controls and customizability, two things that Razer’s been known for. Aside from customizable controls and an ultra-sensitive multi-touch screen, the Switchblade’s getting a hardware bump courtesy of Intel’s brand spanking new Intel Atom Z690 processor which will run at 1.70 GHz.

“Intel is very excited to be working closely with Razer on the next generation of mobile handheld PC gaming,” said Brad Graff, consumer marketing director, Netbook and Tablet Group, Intel. “The Razer Switchblade concept takes advantage of the Intel Atom processor, providing the performance needed to run 3D PC games in a small and light form factor to enable mobile gaming at significantly less power than a traditional laptop.”

There’s still no word if it’ll ever be available (it is a concept device after all) or the game’s it’ll be able to play, but as soon as we get word, you guys will be the first to know.
