    Razer is an american company who specializes in gaming computers and accessoires. Since earlier this year, it has been rumored that the company wants a piece of the smartphone market after buying off smartphone maker Nextbit. Past Wednesday the firm announced it will have a "huge" announcement ready for the first day of November. At the same time specifications of a so-called "Razer Phone" have been spotted from a GFXbench benchmark. The specs are attached below for your viewing pleasure.

    Comparisons with existing benchmarks of other flagship phones suggest that Razer's phone performs slightly better. For instance, it reaches 21.4 FPS with the Manhatten benchmark, beating 19 FPS of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and 18.4 FPS of the Google Pixel 2 XL. It should be noted that Benchmark results don't neccessarily reflect the actual day-to-day performance, though.

    About the outer appearance of the phone, no information is known at this point in time. You have to wonder though, could Razer's first attempt at a smartphone perhaps feature a sliding controller like Sony's Xperia Play? Find out next time on Dragonball Z on November 1st.

    how can one be a HUGE fan of razer products?
    the hardware might sometimes be worthwhile or even great, but prices are WAY over the top and the software is basically down right trash. synapse is a fkn trainwreck compared to what logitech offers.

    How many of the gaming concepts Razer was going on and on about was ever actually released? Remember Switchblade? Remember Razer Artemis? I'm not holding my breath for this one.

    I'm hardly an expert, but 8 cores and 8GB ram in a phone seems like overkill to me. Are there even any phone games worth playing that use anywhere near that amount?

    Isn't 8GB of RAM overkill? Sure, those benchmarks are churning out a 20% increase in FPS over the Pixel 2 XL, but in terms of real-world performance it's still only a couple frames per second, and the added cost would be ridiculous.

    The only thing I could think of was dolphin, but other than that, not really. Pretty much anything I want to run on my Nexus 6p works fine.

    It already kinda works, it just needs a lot more optimisation, some more power from mobile devices and they really need to work out the controller situation

    You're thinking in terms of PCs, where all cores are equal. In reality, most of the extra cores in ARM are low-power, lower-frequency cores dedicated to background tasks during sleep, etc. Some mobile CPUs might dedicate cores to the GPU too, but honestly I don't follow the mobile scene enough to know what's up anymore.

    Your best bet for dolphin on the go right now would be the gpd win (I think that's what it's called)

    Will it have 400 buttons for my macros?
    Cuz apparently buttons = gaming for Razer.

    Also do I need to keep my phone connected to the internet to use it?

    oh and lets place our bets for the price.
    I'm gonna ballpark it at $2500 but that might be a tad generous if Razer keeps it that low for one of their piece of shit products.

    Good ol' Razer, where you'll spend 10x the price for pretty green $1 LEDs. If this phone doesn't glow green and cost $5000, I'll be surprised.
