Packs in Ivy Bridge-based Core i7 CPU and dual controllers.
It's a serving tray... it's a laptop... it's a hand-held console... no it's Razer's gaming tablet concept dubbed Project Fiona. It fuses Intel's Ivy Bridge-based Core i7 CPU and goodies such as SSD drives with Windows 8, which lets it run contemporary PC games. The concept features usual tablet goodies such as front and rear facing cameras, accelerometer, gyro, and a 1280x800, 10.1" multi-touch screen.
However, what sets it apart from ordinary tablets is a pair of Razer Hydra-like controllers permanently bolted to its chassis. Each controller is replete with a thumbstick, index trigger, and face buttons. This gives it full functionality comparable to any console gamepad. Razer has plans to price the production version under $1000. Although there's no word on the GPU installed in the concept, the performance seems to be pretty healthy.
