The Lenovo and Razer teamup has produced its first products: the Ideacenter Y900 RE (Razer Edition) and the Lenovo Y27g RE Curved Gaming Monitor. At a glance, these appear to just be the regular versions of the machines, with Razer’s contribution being the addition of Chroma lighting.
On the inside, the Ideacenter Y900 RE (Razer Edition) is almost exactly the same as the regular Ideacenter Y900. It sports a sixth generation Intel Core i7 K processor and up to 32GB RAM. The rest of the specifications are similarly identical, save for the graphics card. The version on display at CES 2016 happens to be fitted with a pair of Nvidia GTX 970 graphics cards in SLI configuration, despite the option not being available to the normal Ideacenter Y900. Lenovo itself has not revealed all the options available to the Y900 RE, and it there is still a chance that it might have some additional options.
Speaking of additional options, the Y900 RE is set to ship bundled with a Razer Blackwidow Chroma mechanical keyboard and a Razer Mamba Chroma mouse.
Those who want the full Razer experience can also opt for the Lenovo Y27g RE Curved Gaming Monitor. Like the Y900 RE, the Y27g RE is also a Chroma’ed version of the normal 27-inch Y27g gaming monitor. It features a 144hz refresh rate and Nvidia’s G-sync compatibility, which is also available on the normal version.
The Lenovo Ideacenter Y900 RE (Razer Edition) is due to be released in June starting from $2,299 (about RM9970). The Lenovo Y27g RE gaming monitor will also be launching in the same month for $600 (about RM2600).
