SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Synaptics Inc. (NASDAQ: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions, today announced that its ClearPad™ 7300 single-chip premier solution drives the touch interface of the Razer Edge Pro Gaming System tablet. The Razer Edge tablet was officially announced at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and was awarded CNET's Best of CES 2013 honors in the Best Gaming, People's Voice and coveted Best of Show categories for its innovative concept and design by bringing PC gaming capabilities to the tablet form factor. 

"Synaptics is delighted that ClearPad 7300 enables the user interface of this industry-shaping gaming device," said Nuri Dagdeviren, Vice President, Smart Displays Division.  "Optimal performance is key to the success of the Razer Edge, and ClearPad 7300 provides the most sophisticated and accurate finger tracking capability, crucial to gaming performance on tablet devices."

As one of the most powerful tablets ever built, the Razer Edge Pro is powered by Intel® Core™ processors and NVIDIA® GeForce™ graphics driving a 10.1" high-definition, multi-touch display, with a rugged high-speed solid state drive that screams incredible performance in a portable form-factor.

The ClearPad 7300 supports up to 12-inch touchscreens with Windows 8-class performance tracking of 10 or more fingers, and is designed to help OEMs design the most compelling tablet, notebook PC, and convertible devices with the shortest development time and lowest cost. Its single ASIC, high integration architecture and industry leading power efficiency enable designers to allocate space and power to elements differentiating their products  without sacrificing leading edge touch performance.

The Razer Edge is expected to begin shipping in Q1 2013.
