Also unveiled was the Razer Kishi V2 Pro, equipped with Hypersense Haptic Feedback and a 3.5mm audio jack – a sleek upgrade from the original Kishi V2. This controller comes bundled with the 5G model, transforming the Edge into a console experience on the go.

How much is the Razer Edge?


The Razer Edge will begin at $399 for the Wi-fi model. However, you should expect that the 5G models will be slightly more expensive. It’s still a competitive price, especially compared to the Logitech G Cloud, which just looks underpowered by comparison. However, for those looking for the most powerful handheld, you might want to pick up a Steam Deck, instead.

When will the Razer Edge be released?


The Razer Edge will be released in January 2023. We do not know the exact date yet, but expect that Razer will reveal a bit more about the device in the coming months. It might be missing this holiday season, but it will certainly not dampen any demand, thanks to the device’s incredibly impressive specifications.

How powerful is the Razer Edge?

The Razer Edge will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 SoC, paired with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM. The SoC touts a “3Ghz octa-core Kryo CPU and an Adreno GPU built for maximum graphics and industry-leading performance per watt”.

Razer claims that in their early benchmarking tests, the G3x Gen 1 runs 2-3x faster than the Snapdragon 720G, which is in the Logitech G Cloud handheld.

In addition to this, the handheld will possess a 6.8-inch AMOLED display, which has the ability to run at up to 144Hz. Additionally, the 2400×1080 screen resolution will allow for high-fidelity gaming, while also looking much better than LCDs or IPS panels.

What can you play on the Razer Edge?

The Razer Edge handheld will support thousands of games, including native android titles, in addition to games like Fortnite and Rocket League via the Epic Games launcher. The handheld will have support for Xbox Cloud Gaming, GeForce Now, Steam Link, Moonlight, and Parsec.

This allows the handheld access to a near-infinite number of games, including cloud gaming solutions.

“It’s our mission to make gaming available to more players around the world, whether it’s those already in the Xbox community or someone who wants to play Xbox for the very first time,” stated Catherine Gluckstein, Vice President of Xbox Cloud Gaming at Microsoft. “Working with hardware partners like Razer to include Xbox Cloud Gaming on new gaming handhelds opens up all-new possibilities for players to experience Xbox on the go.”
