Portable gaming isn't what it once was. Sure, you can still snag a handheld device from Sony or Nintendo, but today's video game industry is far more diverse. Gamers on the go have no shortage of hardware to pick from: tablets, smartphones, gaming laptops and purpose-built handhelds are redefining what a mobile gaming platform is. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan must have felt the winds of change blowing his way when he cooked up Project Fiona, now known as the Razer Edge. The company's marketing material frames the curious device as an all-in-one gaming arsenal; it's a tablet, says the product page, as well as a PC and console.

Crysis 3 ?
I wonder if they made some special cut down version or just reduced the detail level to bare minimum

It's about what I was expecting.

Tablets just aren't in a great spot right now to play real current PC games on. A few years down the road may change that (with all of the advances in mobile gpus/cpus) but it's not worth the investment.

At the tablet's native 1,366 x 768 resolution, these games eked out a middling 25 fps, failing to maintain an average above 30 until they were scaled down to 1,280 x 600. Crysis 3 bore the resolution hit well enough, but the loss of fidelity turned The Witcher 2 into a muddled mess. The rest of our library fared better: Skyrim and Black Ops II each bounced between 30 and 60 fps on high settings, depending on how much action was on screen, and both Battlefield 3 and Far Cry 3 managed respectable framerates on medium settings. Some games didn't require tweaking at all. Dishonored scored a firm 60 fps on high, and Team Fortress 2 averaged 65, regularly pushing 100 fps in enclosed spaces, Then again, TF2 runs well on everything. The Edge struggled with a few high-end games, but there wasn't a single title we threw at it that wouldn't play smoothly with reasonable adjustment.

They'll definitely be more useful once cloud gaming gets going and tablets can stop trying to be high end laptops.
Less hardware + lower price = fantastic.

It would be awesome if the game engines will be more optimized for mobile chips. Like Source, it's lightning fast everywhere.
