Lenovo Ideacenter Y900 RE (Razer Edition) gaming desktop to launch in June
Lenovo, the world’s biggest PC maker, and Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, announced in 2015 they were teaming up on a PC gaming project. Now we’ve seen the first two products to come out of this partnership, special “Razer Editions” of a gaming PC- Lenovo Ideacenter Y900 RE – and a curved gaming monitor – Y27g RE (Razer Edition).
This new Lenovo Ideacenter Y900 RE comes with the Razer’s Chroma lighting effects, a customizable multi-colored lighting scheme already found in several of Razer’s standalone keyboards.
The Ideacenter Y900 RE (Razer Edition) and desktop that Lenovo sells right now are practically identical. This new desktop is equipped with a Windows 10, current sixth-generation Intel Core i7 K-series processor and comes standard with Nvidia’s dual GeForce GTX 970 graphics cards running in SLI.
In the Y900 RE you’ll find a 256GB SSD (though the Razer Y900 can also include up to a 2TB hard drive) and up to 32GB of DDR4 system memory. Wired and wireless connections are plentiful, and the system is bundled with a matching Razer BlackWidow Chroma mechanical keyboard and a Razer Mamba Tournament Edition Chroma gaming mouse. The IdeaCentre Y900 RE comes in June on the market for a price starting at $2,299.
Lenovo Y27g RE Curved Monitor – Razer Edition
There is one more announcement from the Lenovo/Razer partnership, the Y27g RE 27-inch Full HD VA curved gaming monitor. The panel has a standard full HD resolution of 1,920×1,080, and while curved televisions are fairly common by now, this is one of the first curved monitors targeted at PC gamers.
It has a fast 144 Hz display with 8 ms response time. It supports Nvidia’s GSync technology and it has the same Chroma lighting effects. The screen is equipped with a USB 3.0 hub with four ports e wireless charging and a hook with the ability to hang onto your screen there.
