Razer Edge

Both Nvidia and Razer have booths dedicated to mobile gaming at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013. Check out the Razer Edge, Project Shield and Nvidia Cloud Gaming.

The term "mobile gaming" can make some PC enthusiasts shudder. Both Nvidia and Razer are trying to get the PC experience on mobile devices, so we took a quick look at some of the hardware and services that the companies are hoping to tempt PC gamers with in 2013.

The Razer Edge, formerly Project Fiona, is an Intel-based gaming tablet. The idea is to provide a PC gaming experience in a tablet form factor.

In addition to the side-handle-style controllers, the Edge can take a keyboard for games more suited to a WASD system, such as MMOs.

Project Shield

Project Shield is Nvidia's rather strange little gaming device, an Android-powered small form factor Tegra 4 device that feels a little like an Xbox controller with a screen attached. Shield can connect to a PC via Wi-Fi and stream PC games over a local network.

Cloud Gaming

Nvidia also showed off its cloud gaming service, the idea being that any game can play on any device, such as this Mac...

Cloud Gaming

...Or this tiny PC. The service relies on Nvidia's Grid server architecture. According to Nvidia, a single Grid server can pump out 24 HD games.
