CES: Razer Shows 10 liter modular Tomahawk Gaming Desktop

Razer Kishi

The Kishi for Android offers support for "most Android or iOS games that are compatible with mobile controllers, including both native titles and cloud services" - sounds like they are referring to Stadia and other cloud gaming platforms including GeForce Now. The Kishi controller can be connected to Android or iOS devices via USB Type-C or Lightning connections.

Razer, the peripheral manufacturer turned cult status symbol for gamers has unveiled its take on mobile gaming with the Razer Kishi.

Developed by the two most prolific luxury gaming technology brand, Razer and Dell's Alienware, both the products have been announced at the CES 2020. The Razer Kishi gamepad hits the shelves in early 2020, but there is no word on pricing yet. But if you want something smaller than even a console, this is one way to go about it.

So, what would you prefer, a standalone chassis from Razer or a complete desktop gaming PC with upgradeable components?

The Razer Tomahawk is claimed to be the first truly modular desktop system that employs the in-house Razer Tomahawk N1 chassis, and can fit the freshly-launched Intel NUC 9 rig. Third, it is compatible with a wide range of Android and iOS smartphones. The new device Kishi, which resembles the Nintendo Switch, drew attention with its superior features than its predecessor Junglecat. It is also compatible with the cloud, so your preferences are saved per game. Razer also plans to make the Tomahawk N1 chassis available as a standalone unit for enthusiasts interested in building their own compact system.

The Eracing simulator allows players to experience a full cockpit when sim racing. We don't know how much it'll be, and there's also no word from Intel in regards to its setup.

The chassis is also created to allow for a modular upgrade system which will allow you to cater for many different simulation scenarios. The racing harness simulates the effects of G-forces by applying pressure, allowing the body to feel the fast acceleration speeds and tightest corners. Be it simple shoulder triggers or a full-fledged controller, every bit helps.

But for most of us, physical controls are essential for the most enjoyable experience.
