Today marks the 1st anniversary of the Razer Store in Hong Kong, so Razer organised a packed event to celebrate in style. When the FunkyKit team attended the opening event last year, it was a wet and miserable day, but this year the weather was completely opposite with the sun blazing down on us.
By the time we arrived at Causeway Bay, there was already a long queue of Razer fans lined up ready to take part in the celebratory event in which there was a prize giveaway, a raffle draw, esports guests appearances and much more!
Before the main events kicked off, we were invited into the Razer Store to check out their latest gears and their vast array of gaming accessories.
This the new Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop, quoted as the world’s smallest 15.6″ gaming laptop. Being under 17mm thick, this diminutive looking laptop is one crazy beast packing some impressive specs. The top of the line model packs an 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H processor clocked at 2.2GHz that can be ran at max clock speeds of 4.1GHz, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 MAx-Q Design 8GB GDDR5 VRAM graphics card, 16GB dual-channel DDR4-2667 and not just 1 SSD but 2; a 256GB M.2 and a 512GB M.2.
To top it all off the display itself is super impressive. Thin bezels around the the 15.6″ display gives you more screen space, and with a max resolution of 1920×1080, IPS, a super fast 144Hz refresh rate, 100% sRGB and 100% Adobe RGB support, you don’t just want to game on it, you want to work on it.
At this point we were ushered outside into the sun where the fans of Razer had gathered for a raffle draw for Razer goodies such as the Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2, Razer ManO’War gaming headsets with the top prize being a set of Razer Quartz Edition accessories. Drawing these prizes were eSports guests Xian of Razer’s own eSports team who is a Street Fighter champion, Deer Chan of PandaCute, HK’s number 1 all female eSports team, and 達哥, a HK gamer/streamer.
These are the some of the goodies in the Razer Quartz Edition line up; the Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition gaming mouse and the Razer Kraken Pro V2. Winston, they’re Quartz, not pink….
During the rest of the day, fans who have signed up earlier on gets a chance to go head to head with Xian with Street Fighter, and with 達哥 with FIFA 2018.
